    Corrupted Hard Drive Message

    I have had two messages in the last two weeks that my hard drive has been corrupted and needs to be dumped. You click on the message and it takes the 622 through a reboot and when done, you still have all the recordings on the hard drive that were there before the corruption. What is the deal.
