hard disk corruption
Posted on 1997-01-20
On a system that's been fine for > 1 yr. using WIN95, no DriveSpace & a 200MB HD, all of a sudden files seemed to be missing. Running a thorough Scandisk found multiple errors in \Windows which were "fixed". It ended up finding a bunch of bad files & even some directories.
I thought I'd just restore from my tape backup but now it won't read. It is a Colorado Jumbo & created the backup just fine. Now it says that even though it reads the tape label it is a vendor specific format that can't be read. The tape utilities that came with it say the tape isn't in QIC format.
