Today our server was acting very strange & was very slow accessing files on the network. I restarted it to see if it would resolve the issue but when we see the windows server 2003 loading at startup it restarts.
I have tried last known good & safe mode's but still this happens.
I have attempted to fix with the windows recovery console. Chkdsk would not complete but I had to force it to run with the R switch & I ran fixboot & fixmbr.
Prior to running fixboot I received a message the boot sector is corrupt.
I have run Partition Magic 8 & this gave me the error110 Partition Unknown also windows setup saw the drive as unknown. I have seen an error on Acronis Disk Director stating a certain sector was unreadable.
I have seen this error before on a windows xp machine & I had a program seek the correct start sector & then it found it & repaired the partition table but I have not got access to this program now & cannot remember what it was called.
Any suggestions on what I should do next I don't want to make the problem worse.
Thanks in advance
