Kyle V Lusk,

I assume that you mean /dev/sdb1?

Using Gparted:

Install Gparted.

Open a Terminal (Ctrl + Alt + T) and type:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install gparted
(press Enter and type your user password when prompted. This will not be shown for security reasons. Press Enter again).

Then open GParted and select the filesystem (sdb1) you want to check.

Right click on it and select Check.

Wait for this operation to be completed.

Alternatively, use the command line. Note that the partition must be unmounted.

sudo umount /dev/sdb1
fsck /dev/sdb1
