Computer crashes while copying data onto the hard drive
My computer crashes every time I transfer large amounts of data onto the D drive of my computer. There is no such problem with my C drive.
First detected this problem while I was transferring some data through LAN. This problem occurs even when I am copying data from my C drive to D drive.
-Ran a complete scan of my computer, found some viruses, but the problem persists
-Did a Disk Check via Windows as well as the TuneUp Utility, no problems detected.

Processor: Intel Core2 Duo t7200 @ 2.00GHz
RAM: 1 GB DDR2 - SDRAM
Hard disk: TOSHIBA MK1234GSX ATA Device(120GB)
No of partitions: 2
Re: Computer crashes while copying data onto the hard drive
Try to use a software called CrystalDiskInfo to do a quick-check on the the drive. Then, unless you get a flag that your drive health is bad, I would follow that with ChkDsk. ChkDsk may allow you to recover / repair at least part of your drive. To use chkdsk, using windows explorer, right click on your drive then, click properties. Click the tab that says "tools". Under "error checking" click the button that says "check now".
