    Sounds like a hard drive problem. If you can back up your stuff as soon as possible.
    That may not be possible, with your situation. If you have important stuff on the drive, I suggest that you use it as liitle as possible, until you can backup your documents.
    If you are diagnosed with hard drive problems, try this to save your stuff. This is a serious method to save your stuff.
