If you are continually prompted, it could be a sign that the drive is
failing. I would suggest you download and run a drive diagnostic utility
from the manufacturer to ensure this is not the case.
Otherwise, you can either try forcing a full disk scan or turning off the
dirty bit that causes the prompt. First, open an elevated command prompt by
typing CMD into the search line, then right click the program menu entry and
select 'run as administrator'.
To turn off the bit, run: chkntfs /d
To force a full scan, run: chkdsk c: /r and follow the prompts to schedule
this to occur on reboot as you will not be able to lock the disk while it's
in use. When this routine completes, it should also clear the dirty bit.
