I got this error on one of my disks last night;
Agent Time: 3:01:10 am 12-Mar-10
Event Time: 2:01:10 pm 11-Mar-10 UTC
Description: The device, \Device\Harddisk1\DR3, has a bad block.
I have since found out this is the removable 500GB hard drive I use for backups on this server. I use two and rotate between them, this disk has been down for three days I can see now.
Is there a way to recover the data from the two successful backups it did on Monday and Tuesday night, or should I just run some diagnostics and see what is wrong?
Under disk management it is coming up as not initialized and the volume is unallocated, this is a reasonably new disk as I had disk failure on the other backup disks around 3 months ago.
I get this event log error now when I try initialize the disk;
Agent Time: 11:55:44 am 12-Mar-10

Description: VDS fails to write boot code on a disk during clean operation. Error code: 80070017@02070008
Any ideas where to go from here?
