As you said, the wizard scandisk showed you the message â??Scandisk has restarted 10 times because windows or another program has been writing to this driveâ??, you can see that when windows write to a hard drive do not show any message to you, so this could be another program that could be a virus or spyware, I recommend you to use immediately a antivirus and a program used to verify if your computer has spy program.
