    There is a command prompt to do that but I don't recall what it is
    The command is chkdsk /r but because data can be lost when Windows moves what data it can to good areas of the disk, it's best to first run the command as chkdsk which is a read-only mode and this will tell you if anything is amiss.

    If it reports bad sectors, it's advised that personal files are backed up first before running a chkdsk /r because of the possible data loss.
