    Alright so I can't boot into my SSD, but when I boot into Linux Mint I can access my SSD files just fine. Now, how do I run the Linux Mint variant of Check Disk to try and repair any errors on with the SSD?

    press alt+F2 and then enter "terminal" (without the quotation marks (" ")). Enter the following command:
    Code:
    sudo fsck -As
    . You may get further instructions/questions from the program. The given command will serially check all the partitions listed in the file /etc/fstab (so make sure that the partition you want to check is listed in it).
    BTW, the command
    Code:
    fsck --help
    or
    Code:
    man fsck
    should give you more information on how to use the fsck program.

    I tried doing the fsck but it won't recognize the drive while it's unmounted and if I mount it I can't put it in read-only.
