Today my Raptor Hard Drive isn't accessible in windows 7, but the bios sees it just fine. During boot windows detects inconsistencies with the drive and it performs a checkdisk. During Phase 2 of 3, it does an index check. The index scan always hangs at 64% completion and the hd begins an audible pattern of clicks that loops over and over. SMART check fails with WD data lifeguard tools, currently doing a DLGDIAG extended test with the same tools..any ideas on how to repair the indexes?
Here is an article from the MS Knowledge Base on Chkdsk and the pass 2 Indexes, that might be of help.http://support.microsoft.com/kb/187941
Did you come up with any useful information with the WD test utilities, or data from a S.M.A.R.T. utlity that could indicate the disk is failing?
