I knew it was trouble. Is there any chance you can eject Ximeta from your systems?
To start with I have already cleaned up the 3GB worth of damage caused by this.
I have 2 computers that I share files between.
Computer 1: Compaq Presario SR1950NX, Default Hardware/OS
Computer 2: HP Pavillion 9795c, Network/Modem removed, Graphics upgraded, Sil3512 based SATA card, 2 permanent HDDs, Quantum Bigfoot 3.2GB (NTLDR, NT4, MSDOS 7.10, Pagefile), Quantum Fireball 20GB (Windows 2000) 2 Semi-Permanent HDD, Western Digital 80GB, Western Digital 500GB SATA, DVD-RW Dual Layer drive.
I use 18 HDDs, so far I've found several things.
All 3 SCSI Drives have been corruption free.
All 4 of 5 SATA Drives have been corruption free, 1 Western Digital 320GB SATA had several corrupt files, It is probable that these became corrupt durring transfer from another drive.
All 6 of 7 PATA Drives 40GB or smaller and have been corruption free, 1 20GB drive was cleared off before I caught this issue.
A 80GB PATA Western Digital Drive has been corruption free
The corruption seems to originate from following 2 drives:
A 160GB PATA Western Digital in a Ximeta Netdisk had 2GB worth of Crosslinked files and 100MB of Minor damage.
A 60GB PATA Drive had minor damage.
These 2 Drives are used through USB on Computer 1 and PATA or USB Computer 2 (USB 1.1=Slow). These drives are still going strong with no signs of failure. When connected through PATA these drives work fine, USB however often corrupts the data. I moved a .zip file on the 60GB PATA and it became corrupt, specifically a single file in the .zip could not be extracted due to corruption. I verified this by using a data recovery tool on the 60GB to undelete the file, the recovered .zip extracted properly. I use these drives to move data from Computer 1 to Computer 2 and corruption is happening on both sets of hardware. So it seems the problems are USB related. Any ideas where to start troubleshooting?
