Step 1. Press Win + R keys and type: cmd, hit "Enter" to open Command Prompt window as an administrator.

Step 2. Type: chkdsk E: /f and hit Enter. (Replace E with the Canon drive letter)

Step 3. Type: Y and hit Enter to continue.

Step 4. Type: E: and hit Enter again. (Replace E with the Canon drive letter)

Therefore, for security and usability, we strongly recommend you try an automatic command line alternative - EaseUS CleanGenius.
