Hard Disk problem

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.help_and_support (More info?)

Hello, today when I started my computer (XP Pro Sp2 updated) it gave an
error about a corrupt file and said to run chkdsk. I ran it, found
problems so ran it again with /f. It apparently corrected the errors.
The computer restarted, I ran chkdsk inside Windows again and it found
another error. I ran in it again with /f after restart and corrected.
It restartaed, ran again and found no errors.
Now I ran it again inside XP and if found this errors:
C:\Documents and Settings\Daniel>chkdsk c:

The thing is that if I run it again with /f it corrects something, then

gives more errors.

Any ideas about this error?

    Recommendation:
    All selected physical diagnostics passed.

    If you are not experiencing data loss and SeaTools reports File
    System Structure errors, they may be caused by a lock-up or

    may be repaired through normal system maintenance which
    includes using the Windows provided "Defrag" and
    "Scandisk / Chkdsk / Error Checking" utilities.

    If you are experiencing a hardware error, you should isolate
    the cause and replace the failing component. If you are unsure how
    to proceed with repairs, contact a computer professional. After
    completing any maintenance tasks, run SeaTools again to
    verify that all errors have been repaired. If errors continue to
    occur, the system may not be stable. Again, contact a computer
    professional.

    Is there a better tool than Chkdks to do disk error fixing?

    Hi Brian.

    I did all the tests available including the long one.
    I will check first about the cables.
    I will try again tonight(Im not home now) to do the chkdsk c: /r. I
    will post back results as soon as i have them (probably in 12 hours).

    Thanks again,
    Dan

    You do not say what brand of HHD you have, but most manufacturers have a
    program that will analyze the HHD. I know for a fact Western Digital does
    as I just had a HHD failure and to get the HDD replaced they required that I
    run the analysis. It was easy to do and took only a few minutes.
    With this info in hand, WD immediately replaced my HHD.

    I suggest you try to find the analyzing program for your HHD. It is not a
    bad idea to run this program occasionally anyway.

    Hope this helps and good luck.

    Go to http://www.seagate.com/support/seatools/ and download the Seagate tool
    (as per Jerry's suggestion) to diagnose whether your disk is on the way out.
    I've not used their tools but if they are anything like the ones I have used
    then it should be clear whether the disk drive is faulty. If the drive is
    faulty then you need to get it replaced.

    What you've indicated so far sounds to me like a duff drive. I suggest you
    take a copy of all your key files so that you at least have a backup if it
    does finally die on you.

    Brian.

    > -Dan

    Firstly, the output you posted doesn't seem to indicate a drive failure (but
    anyone else out there who thinks I'm wrong please but in!!). Did I get the
    impression that it did a quick test and that a longer one is available - if
    so try running that.

    Regarding chkdsk. I find chkdsk better than anything else available.

    Try, after you've backed up key files (re my previous posting) and done the
    longer disk check:

    chkdsk c: /r

    the /r flag (as opposed to the /f flag) fixes errors and then does a disk
    check of every sector - it takes an age, but if there are areas of the disk
    which are going bad (an indication itself of disk problems) then this will
    find them.

    Something else to try - possibly before the above - check that all the disk
    cables are snugly in place. If a cable is a little loose then it might give
    you intermittent problems.

    Hope this helps. I know how horrible it can be with disks fail.

    all the best,

    Brian.

    Be aware that with the /r option chkdsk takes ages and ages and ages ... you
    get the picture.

    Delete all partitions and repartition, format and reload. If the problem
    persists junk the harddrive. If it persists on a new drive, junk the
    motherboard, the hdd controller is broke. Now you have two good harddrives
    and a new motherboard.

    Um, do you mean HHD? or HDD?
