Got a problem, want to bring the node online asap.
Got a node on a 16TB HDD. Connected to a PC with USB docking station. It was working surprisingly well. No problem with USB whatsoever on my AMD A320M-A motherboard PC.
(Was still on usb, because i was expanding from 1TB disk to 16TB, months ago)
So now, i clicked to safely unmount it, icon on windows bar, and i took the disk from the docking station.
I bought myself a new LSI SAS3081E-S SAS controller,
with another PC i connected it, and it works.
Wanted to check, if it sees HDDs as big as 16TB.
Added this freshly unmounted HDD.
And windows starting, it is win7, clean with manually installed updates SP1 and such, almost all updates installed. Its a spare PC, excellent for service and diagnostics.
So windows is staring, and it want to check the new HDD for errors i let it.
It was working like 36-40+ hours and fixing many errors in indexes.
I guess i should turn off the dock station, and not just take out a HDD when dock station was still On, and attached to PC.
The problem is the chkdsk seems to stop after 2 from 3 part. and don’t go any further. Computer is freezed. i can only restart it.
I ran it 2-3 more times to full scan, and it supposedly found some few more errors like showed above, so at last full run, it founds none, and just checks and stops at:
I have a HIREN’s 15.2 bootable usb stick, so was trying to repair it with it
BUT TestDisk says it cant help me, says MFT is wrong or faild.
And can’t even see files under “|List|” and can’t rebuild MBR, because it says its ok.
And HDAT2 another program on a hiren’s stick, sees something with MBR, but no option to fix it.
Also HDAT2 scanned all disk for bad sectors and all is green OK.
Just the disk files are not recognizable under windows, when i skip the chdsk scanning.
Sooo i would like to ask some experience, what do You advice me, what to do to bring the disk to usability asap? I tried many tools more on that hirens 15.2 but none seems to fix it aaah.
