Error Messages:File Allocation Table bad, drive C

I used the DELTREE command to delete a system generated file named DIR00001. I pressed "y" to the prompt as to whether I wanted to delete these file. However the message "File Allocation Table bad, drive C" was returned

Loosing the FAT (File Allocation Table) is very serious. BACKUP YOUR DATA NOW!

Once the backup of your important files is done, run scandisk in DOS to try and fix the FAT. Run the surface scan to mark any bad sectors. If you already done this then your drive is deteriorating. You may need to get it replaced.
