Bad disk problem
Posted on 2003-03-13
I have a file server computer at home that I have all my files on.
When I copied in a number of files I ran out of space on that disk.
That is logged in the eventlog.
After that I get that the disc is corrupted.
And the problem now is to save what possible there is to save.
If you click on the drive in windows you will get the error: "x:\ is not accessible. The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable."
When I run chkdsk nothing happens (it does not even start?!).
I have tried EasyRecovery and that starts just fine.
It displays sevral files that it has found and it is counting blocks.
But when it get's to block 5800 everything stops.
No error message.. The estimated time only increases and it does nothing.
Also tried Norton DiscDoctor... That don't even start doing anything...
What I can tell there is something wrong in the begining of the disk and EasyRecovery works just fine until that specific block (5800)..
I guess if only it can jump over that block everything else is recovered...
So do anyone got a good tool that can fix the problem on the disk.
There is no hardware fault on the disk only that when copying to it (as it was a network drive) it got full and that created some problem with the file table I guess.
But all files are on the disk and not corrupted.
So what can I do now?
