CHKDSK is short of "check disk," it is an essential Windows utility that scans a hard disk, USB / external drive for errors and can fix file system errors for free and repair or recover data on the drive if necessary.
Features of Windows CHKDSK

    scans/fixes NTFS/FAT drive errors

    marks bad sectors (physically damaged blocks)

    scans other memory devices (USB sticks, SSD external drives, and SD cards) for errors

You can run Check Disk from a command prompt or within other tools.

The complete syntax for Check Disk is as follows:
CHKDSK [volume[[path]filename]] [/F] [/V] [/R] [/X] [/I] [/C] [/L[:size]]

The options and switches for Check Disk are used as follows:

volume Sets the volume to work with
path/filename Specifies files to check for fragmentation (FAT16 and FAT32 only)
/F Fixes errors on the disk
/V Displays the full path and name of every file on the disk (FAT16 and FAT32); displays cleanup messages if any (NTFS)
/R Locates bad sectors and recovers readable information (implies /F)
/X Forces the volume to dismount first if necessary (implies /F)
/I Performs a minimum check of index entries (NTFS only)
/C Skips checking of cycles within the folder structure (NTFS only)
/L: size Sets the log file size (NTFS only)
/B Re-evaluates terrible clusters on the volume (NTFS only; implies /R)
