hi, welcome to this forum.
You do have a problem - your hard drive is failing. You need to back up your files immediately and replace the hard drive. If you have an external drive, back up to that.If you don't have an external drive, remove this drive until you get get a new drive. Once you have the new drive installed and loaded with the OS, hook up the old drive as a secondary drive and back up your files to the new drive. Or you can use an external enclosure to connect the old drive to the computer, but unless you have one lying around it's an unnecessary expense. Also, check the type of connection your hard drive uses before ordering a new one - SATA (most likely) or EIDE. SATA uses a narrow cable, EIDE uses a wide ribbon cable.
Check the manufacturers website to see if your drive is still under warranty. If it is you can get a free replacement.
(if I'm reading this correctly you have one drive with many partitions, is that correct? )

One partition would have been enough. Partitions are not folders. It's easier to back up just one, and saves a lot of time that is used for moving and copying files from one to another.

Better make sure all your drives have recent backups.
