    Cyclic Redundancy Check (or CRC) means that there's something on the disk that shouldn't be there, or something that should be there isn't. It suggests the format for the partition was botched. There could perhaps be a bad sector on thr drive, in which case you should replace it. Typically the warranty for hard disks is three years.
