    I agree - backup your data. Then I would go to the drive's property page and under Tools, run Error Checking on the drive. I recommend ensuring both options are checked and when prompted to allow the checking to occur during next boot, say yes (or whatever the affirmative response is). Then reboot.

    Note the process can take many hours, and may appear that nothing is happening. Just let it run.
