I need to know if this software is suitable to solve a problem I'm having with my external hard disk? One of the folders doesn't open and I have solved the issue by running a verification available in the properties box of the disk. This verification takes many hours (sometimes more than one day) and I need a faster way of solving this problem.

You might need to check the S.M.A.R.T report using a utility. Download and install SpeedFan then click on the SMART tab. The drive should have yellow or red sections. This means the drive's health is at risk. Because of that you encounter errors with the CRC. Try to backup the available data and replace the hard disk.

Crc errors indicate a problem with your drive. Try running manufactures diagnostic utility on your drive and report back if it detects problems.
