Try running chkdsk from the command window. Go to >start >run type in CMD and the black DOS window should appear. Type E:\ or CD E:\ and that should get you to the root of your E drive. then type chkdsk /r

This will scan your hard drive for any errors and if possible fix them. If you can then access the E drive free some space up so you have a minimum of 10% free space then run a defrag.

Hope this helps
