Service wont start

My node wont start and I don’t know how to resolve the problem. The windows event viewer says

The Storj V3 Storage Node service terminated unexpectedly.

The log contains the following repeating over and over.
2020-03-26T11:40:45.835Z INFO Configuration loaded from: C:\Program Files\Storj\Storage Node\config.yaml
2020-03-26T11:40:45.840Z INFO Operator email:

2020-03-26T11:40:46.449Z INFO db.migration Database Version {“version”: 33}

Any hints on where to go from here would be appreciated.

Hi willyc welcome to the Storj forum!

Is that everything in the logs? No errors otherwise?

No errors. It had been running for for ~ 3 weeks. The only anomaly in the log file is there was an entry at 2020-03-26T02:21:25.879, there there are a load of NULL characters before the next valid entry at 2020-03-26T06:35:15.190. When I woke up this morning, the machine was running painfully slowly, so I rebooted it. Whether Storj was causing the slow down, or whatever was causing the slow down has messed up Storj, I don’t know. However, I can’t get any useful error messages.

I should add, the log looks normal up until that point in the log file. After that it’s just the repeating lines mentioned above.

I noticed a few bad sector errors in the system log, so ran chkdsk on the drive to repair it and that seems to have fixed the problem. Back up and running. Will my node have been black listed now as it’s been down for most of the day?

Not yet. The disqualification for downtime is currently disabled.
Just keep it online, it should recover its reputation.
