    Here is a bottom line question. I get a error code of 1024 when I see if I have any bad sectors. So I do a chkdsk\r and about 2 hours it finds no problems. Then I go back and do the same thing as my image says and again I get error code 1024. So should I just throw this Hard Drive away?

    It might be a bad registry according to my Google searching.

    Go to CMD as Admin and run SFC /scannow.

    If that doesn't fix it a repair install could, but the larger question is: how did the registry become corrupt in the first place? Might be due to a failing HDD.

    I read that same thing except that this drive is a data drive and the registry is on the C drive so I just switch my 2 data drives and I don't care about this drive because all data goes through the good drive first. Thanks.

    Does Windows not control what drives you have installed or attached?

    You might just want to run a sfc /scannow anyway. Wouldn't hurt.

    I used all the ones below and still I get a 1024 error code and I did a check disk and it said my Hard Drive was OK and there are no viruses so do I throw away the hard drive or is there something else I can do?

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    At the Command Prompt, type: sfc/scannow

    Drive is likely physically fine, probably just corrupt OS.
