- If it's on your machine, try it on another machine.
- If it's on the external disk, use AUTORUN EATER (free download) to disable autoruns. It shouldn't be activated then and you should be able to access the disk without errors.
But it sounds like a hardware issue.
e:\$Mft windows -delayed write failed
error:disk read error - read fails, the system cannot find the file specified.
these are the error messages that come up when I run my external hdd. What is the possibility that it is caused by a virus called minesweeper. My anti virus can not detect it. Please help.
