Chkdsk corrupted my RAID array
Posted on 2006-05-27
Windows is a briilliant operating system... Installed Windows XP PRO on my PC, to the following spec:
1 IDE hard drive running Windows OS (C:)
2 SATA Samsung HD in RAID 0 configuration (NVIDIA) (E:)
When Windows rebooted, it discovered 'errors' on my raid drive, E:. Before I noticed, chckdsk had proceeded to start 'fixing' these 'errors'. It never finished (I shut down the PC), but now that I am trying to access some files on E:, I get the following error from Windows:
"Cannot ..... The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable."
I assume these files are corrupted beyond repair, so how can I get rid of them? Also, how can I identify and correct any more errors from the renegade chkdsk program?
Thank you for your assistance.
