This has been only happening recently, but I keep getting a Fatal Disk Error (8)

How do I come about fixing this? I Used SMART,Cleaner,Defrag, everything and my Hard Drive checks out perfectly fine, so I know its nothing on the HDD.

How much free space do you have on the hard drive?

228GB of free space currently in my C Drive, I did check that post, my Hard Drive is fine, and so is my copy of Windows 7, at least to my knowledge.


I just tried repairing it, and it still gave me the error . . .

It could be a 'permissions' issue, depending upon where you installed GW2.  It's best not to install GW2 to your 'desktop' or Program Files. The best thing is to put GW2 in a separate folder directly on the SSD/HDD. For example "C:\somefoldername\GW2\"
