I've got a hard disk in my laptop partitioned into to two.

After a year of good service, my laptop is now, from time to time during use, displaying 'disk full' type messages when trying to save a file (Word) or unzip a file (Winrar) and things like that.

I can still access files on the disk, just not write to it, although the problem when it is occurring seems to be intermittent.

The disks aren't full and have over 10% free. When I restart Windows the problem goes away.

I'm guessing there is something wrong with the disk?

Any ideas on how to check for errors/problems or solve this?

Thanks.

I set the check disk to run when the computer restarted and it did the check but I wasn't there to watch the whole thing so didn't get any kind of report.

Does this mean the check went well and no problems arose? I will wait to see if the problem occurs again.

Thanks.
