    A volume is sometimes marked dirty if the computer undergoes a sudden power interruption(leaving no chance to shut down things properly) May be that's the cause.

    Hi. What File System means here is the way files are arranged in your computer. The computers have a way of arranging files in a systematic way so that they can be accessed very fast and easily, just like we arrange files in cabinet in a given order.
    We have had a number of filling systems e.g. FAT 12, FAT 16, FAT 32, NTFS.

    When you come to volume, or the volume label, it is the name you assign your drive. So, if you rename your drive to "Hubpages", then the drives volume will be appearing as "Hubpages". In your case, the hard disk has been given the name 'dirty'.

    the dirty file error happens because of not closed properly. Restart your window and see it appears again. If yes then format your drive.

    It seems because of some error in the Hard disk Run a Check Disk on the computer,.

    For that

    Eun - > CMD -> Type

    chkdsk /r

    Then hot on enter. Now you have to restart the computer. It will take 1-2 hour to complete the check disk.
    After that every thing will work fine.
