MY LAPTOP JUST SHUT DOWN AND ALL OF MY FILES HAVE DISAPPEARED. IT RESTARTED ITSELF. THE MESSAGE CAME UP ABOUT A BOOT SECTOR AND HARD DISK SECTOR OF MY COMPUTER IS CORRUPTED AND LOSS OF FILES MAY HAVE BEEN CAUSED. THEN IT SAID SOMETHING ABOUT AN IDA/SATA. THEN IT ALSO SAID I NEED TO RUN A SYSTEM HARD DISK DIAGNOSTIC. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Meet the drop-resistant Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
