I've been having problems opening the pictures folder on my internal media drive, and tried just about every solution I could find to fix it with no success. 

Now I'm running chkdsk /f on the drive, but so far (6 hours) it has checked 16558 of 63744 in stage 1, and has flagged up 4 unreadable file record segments.  ETA: 40hrs+

Time to replace the drive? I've got all the important stuff backed up, thankfully!
