Hard drive failed?

Hi

All of a sudden. I cannot open any folders, even after a restart if I try it just hangs for 5 minutes then opens a blank file explorer folder. I tried sfc /scannow but it freezes at 13% and check disk also freezes at 13%. I'm starting to think the hard drive has broken because now I'm getting bsod NTFS_file_system. If it is bad sectors would reinstalling fix problem or am I going to need to replace hard drive?

Thanks

  1. Sounds like the hdd is ready to die. If you're getting NTFS stop errors

    Unless it's got rootkits on it. Which can cause the same stop error
