SIXPACK it and then run CHKDSK. Hope for the best.
My external harddrive is a 250gig SimpleTech SimpleDrive. It is connected to an A75 satalite Laptop with Windows XP home. It has the following problems
Delayed write failure for file E:\$Mft
Delayed write failure for file E:\.
Delayed write failure for insert name of file you are trying to open
Generic Device cannot be stopped *cannot safely remove hardware*
Cannot delete file, it is currently in use *hey no, that file hasn't been used in 2 months or more*
Will complete a Checkdisk as long as you don't ask it to fix the errors, it will not proceed to phase 4 in the normal tools box, and will claim it doesn't have enough space when running a chkdsk r in the command window to replace the bad cluster *there are 69.7 gig taken and 163 gig free at the moment*
It all started when mutorrent was attempting to download a 60 gig file to this drive. The whole setup had a critical system error related to the network and my wireless network card. AFter that I deleted the torrent, but these issues continued to show up. I have no clue how to fix this. If anyone has suggestiongs, I appreciate them and I can try and give more information if it is necessary.
Thank you so much
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
