It’s possible that you receive a message shows like there is a damaged file system or you have to format the partition before using it. Or the issue may be even worse: you can’t boot the computer normally for the computer informs you that "Operating System not found" or "Missing Operating System". This time, you should do partition fix to make everything go back to normal.
Generally speaking, you can fix partition by using a piece of third party software. MiniTool Partition Wizard is a good choice. Please notice that different partition issues have different solutions and this partition fix software offers two functions – "Check File System" and "Rebuild MBR" – to solve this kind of problem accordingly.
Way 1: Check File System
If the computer is shut down abnormally, the partition file system may be damaged and you are not allowed to open it. In this situation, you can use the function "Check File System" to check and fix the detected errors in partition. Fortunately, the Free Edition is available this time, and it can be used on Windows XP/Vista/7/8/8.1/10 32 bits and 64 bits.
