    Sorry to say, but this is almost always a failed disk/drive issue. Ive seen this happen with HDD/SSDs and USB drives. The only thing you can do now is replace it. Once it gets to that point there is no restoring it.

The standard 128 GB flash memory available seems hopelessly inadequate for storing Win 8, a full range of programs and a...
