Lost-Delayed Write Error
Posted on 1998-08-04
Here's the problem:
I am getting an error message "Lost Delayed-Write ... transferring from buffers" when attempting to copy large amounts of files to "DRIVE X" It is an external SCSI connected via Adaptec 2940UW. There is only one other external drive connected. SCSI IDs are OK, Termination should be OK. I've tried alternate cables. No internal devices are attached.
I've tried a clean install of Windows NT and Low Level format of all drives. Drives are formatted NTFS.
I'm guessing the drive is shot, but I seem to be able to copy some files over without a problem. Its a rather large drive for me (9GIG) so I would hate to toss it.
