Windows 10: Scanning And Repairing C Drive Over and Over

    Scanning And Repairing C Drive Over and Over

    My ASUS laptop running Windows 10 crashed and I had to turn it off by holding the power button. When I turned the laptop back on it had a message that it was scanning and repairing the C drive. After a few hours the instead of then starting up normally, a blue screen appears with several options. One is to continue to Windows. If I choose that option, the computer starts scanning and repairing the C drive all over again and then I get back to the blue option screen. Another option is to turn the computer off. I did that and then waited a minute before turning the computer back on. Same loop of scanning and repairing C drive and then blue option screen. There is a trouble shooting option which also lead me back through the same loop. One option was to delete my apps but nothing else. That did not work. One option was safe mode, but that also just led to the same loop ending in blue options screen. I have not tried the complete reformatting option yet because there is still stuff on my hard drive that I want. My buddy suggested I take out the hard drive, get my stuff off, then reformat whole computer. I am going to try that next. Does anyone know any other possible solutions?

    It is important to backup data *before* attempts at repair. I like your friend's idea, but before you reformat the drive, make sure the hard disk is not dying with Crystal Disk Info. The portable version that you just need to download and run is at:

    Good luck
