    Try going to your command prompt ADMIN
    Then type this command chkdsk /f C:
    After typing this command exactly as posted, Windows should tell you that it needs to run the command on your next reboot.
    Reboot your computer and let it run, this could take a long time to finish, if your hard drive has lots of problems.

    Right click on your Windows Start Menu and you will see Command prompt ADMIN

    Plug in an empty USB drive, 8 GB or larger, into a USB port and try again. If this fails, do you have the Windows 10 DVD or USB drive handy? If not, do you have access to another PC?

    I'm browsing online. Should I not be doing anything?
    No worries, shouldn't be an issue. But the fewer write operations that hard drive/SSD experiences the better it is.

    Ok. I'll need a little time. I finished what I was doing, but I decided to try to save my data to the external hard drive .. especially pictures and music.

    When you wanted me to run that it was to help me be able to save my data? If I can save the data then I don't do the steps you told me to? Sorry. I'm confused.

    You need to check your C- Drive for errors, 1st. As it sounds like you have hard drive issues.

    No matter if you try and save some personal files or not, you NEED to RUN CHKDSK command from ADMIN Command prompt.
    chkdsk /f C:
    This could solve your hard drive problems ...if it can repair any errors it finds.

    Ok so I right clicked on Start and clicked on command prompt (admin). I typed in chkdsk /f C: (that's a space after k and after F yes?) What came up was:

    "fsutilext.dll is either not designed to run on windows or it contains an error. Try installing program using original installation media or contact system admin/fendor"

    Error - 0xc0012f
