Hi the47thsulaiman, and welcome to TSG.

Please let us know the brand and model number of the hard drive and what operating system is running on the computer.

it proving difficult
Can you please explain what difficulties you are encountering?

Assuming you are running some version of MS-Windows, have you tried using the Check Disk utility that is included with Windows to scan and repair errors in the hard drive?
