I just tried downloading Bitcoin Core to my PC today for the first time and am getting an error. I am a noob to this, but was hoping someone could point me in the right direction in getting this fixed as I'm trying to get smarter on this stuff. Google led me to try re-indexing, but unfortunately that crashed as well after a few hours of running.
The below is the error message and the debug file. It appears it crashed due to a corrupt block found and potential hardware error. It could certainly be a hardware error as I only currently have the storage space for a full node on an old HDD, but haven't had any issues with this HDD previously.
Appreciate any help here. Thanks!
