Hello, OK, I ran Chkdsk and got the following report.
1696 KB in 1 recovered files.
Windows has made corrections to the file system.
38,768,576 KB total disk space.
135,392 KB in 4,231 hidden files.

32,768 bytes in each allocation unit.
1,211,518 total allocation units on disk.
125,972 allocation units available on disk.
