If you have ever experienced an unexpected power outage, your disk is likely corrupted. If a repair is not conducted quickly after an outage, the damaged disk will ultimately cause issues, which will be indicated by the message “My system is frozen and unresponsive.” Remember that earlier remark about discovering the corruption at a later time? You may have just reached that point. However, not all “frozen computers” are the result of a damaged disk drive.
