Drive Is Corrupt Cannot Access


I built myself a nice new i7 based system i7 920 mb , gigabyte ex58-ud3r x58 core i7. 6 gig of triple channel ram, i am running windows 7 ultimate 64 bit. I currently have 6 hdd in my system 4x320 sata drives raid onto 2 640 units

1x 1t hdd
1x1t hdd external usb drive
Now i have had no issues with the raided 320 drives
I boot off one of the 640 raids

Now what keeps happening is any data that i place upon the internal 1t drive, after a couple of days some of it gets damaged, and then i will also get an error saying drive is corrupt cannot access. I know its not the drive since this is a new machine my first thought was faulty hdd, so it has been replaced, yet fault still happens. I am not sure what i can do to fix this problem or provide you with more information.

Backup Fails Due To Corrupt C: Drive

Recently backup failed claiming a corrupted c: drive prevented some user files from being copied. On startup disc check is run automatically and reports a fault due to recently installed/upgraded software application and states that the solution is to restore to an earlier point. This fails on a series of restore points citing corrupt c: as the problem. (Some loop huh!)Regcure has been run and sped things up (a lot!) But not resolved the issue.

Windows 7 family premium is being run as an upgrade from the originally installed vista. Ny ideas please? I really don't want to reboot and start again if i can help it, especially as its an upgrade not original installation. (Most of me wants to go back to xp if i must stay on windows!).

Error - Access Is Denied When Trying To Access A Shared Drive

I am getting an error "access is denied" when trying to access a shared drive on windows 7 machine that is not the specified "public" folder. How do i fix this?. I have done a fair bit of googling to no avail!

I have also made all he necessary network and sharing settings to allow connections. Other computers can access the "public" folder. But not the other shares that i set up. Although the other computer/s can 'see' them when viewing workgroup computers. Nb. All machines are on the same workgroup name.

Error Message - Disk Is Corrupt Or Unreadable - External Hard Drive

Seagate freeagent go 500g external hard drive usable in xp professional works fine, but when i try to use it on windows 7. I get the error message "disk is corrupt or unreadable ". Installed windows professional x64 11/16/09. Everything works fine, all updated drivers for motherboard chipset. Tried everything, i can plug it into windows 7 pro x64 and get an immediate prompt to reformat, followed by disc is corrupt or unreadable. I can disconnect immediately and plug into a xp home computer and it works just fine.

Tried doing the security allow all users so its not locked from this new computer, didn't work, installing drivers hasn't worked, basically at a loss here, not enough room to back it up on the working computer, format on the new, and reinstall it on newly formatted hdd.

Drive C: Access Denied

I am running windows 7 home prem 32-bit. We had a visitor who "knows computers" and this morning the wife can not do anything on her computer. Life is not fun at this time. I checked my computer and there is a administrator account along with mine. Hers does not have administrator account, only her account.

This seems to have something to do with the problem. I have tried everything in safe mode to running the "repair" on the win7 cd. Nothing works. Question: is there something that i can do other than bomb and pave?

Cannot Access Hard Drive

I installed windows 7 dual-boot with vista ult 64-bit. Not a problem, . Both versions boot and run. However i have had installed 6 sata drives. Vista recognizes and access's all 6 in explorer and device manager. Windows 7 however recognizes all 6 in device manager but will only display 5 in the computer drive explorer view. There is no method to access the (actually 5th sata) drive. It cannot be accessed by any program i've tried so far. (Xp also recognized and accessed all 6 drives when i used it. )

I have a asus rampage formula motherboard, 4 wd 320 hd drives, 1 corsair sshd 6th in sata chain (windows 7 installed on it)
750 wd hd the 5th sata which is not accessible.

8 meg corsair ram 1000 watt ps asus 4850 video card. Running in non raid mode for the moment. I am not impressed with 7 especially since being screwed by the lack of the ult upgrade option

Slave Drive Access Denied

"replacing invalid security id with default security id" on 65k+ files after first boot following a power outage. Now all i get is "access denied" when trying to explore slave drive. I installed windows 7 ultimate + visual studio 2008 on one hard disk and windows 7 ultimate + visual studio 2010 on a separate physical hard disk, just to avoid any potential issues that might arise from the coexistence of these products running under the same "logical" os.

It's very easy to choose which hard disk i want to boot from. At power-up i simply press f12 on my bios boot screen and select the hard disk to boot from. When the os boots, the "other" connected hard disk becomes the slave automatically. If i "dont" select which drive to boot from at the bios boot-screen the hard disk with vs2008 boots. So i guess you could say the hard disk with vs2008 is the "default" boot hard disk. I leave my computer on pretty much 24/7. Before the power outage, i had booted off the "non-default" or "slave" drive with vs2010. Then the thunderstorms knocked out my power. When i turned on the computer the next day, the computer began booting up off the "default" boot disk which contains vs2008. This is when i seen the screen being flooded with these messages. "Replacing invalid security id with default security id".

This went on for what seemed like over an hour. It must have did this to every existing file on the "slave" hard disk. I remember the numbers being as high as 65k+. So, my situation is this. The physical hard disk which was "not" acting as the os disk at the time of power outage is fine, but it seems its completely wiped out my ability to access anything on the physical hard disk that had been running as the "system" drive during the power outage.

When i select "start->computer->" it shows the slave drive with a drive letter and the drives description/name and it shows ntfs as the file system but it doesn't show the used/free space as all my other drive letters do on the "master" hard disk and when i double-click the drive to explore the contents it says, "location is not available", "h: is not accessible. ", "Access is denied". I am assuming all my data is still there but windows 7 won't let me see it.

System configuration: winndows 7 rtm, gigabyte ga-ep45-ud3l motherboard, intel pentium dual-core e6300 wolfdale @ 2. 8ghz, 4gb pc-1066 ddr2 patriot viper memory, 500 gb western digital hard disk, geforce 8800gt video card

Win 7 Cannot Access Vista C: Drive

When i go into my network vista computer from my win 7 computer, i can see the shared c: drive but i get the "you don't have permission" msg. But i can see and access the shared public folder and the users folder. When i go into security tab for both the public and the users folders i see under "group or users names" an entry for "everyone, " but that entry is not present for the c: itself.
And the same thing is true when i try to see the win 7 c: drive from the vista system.

My problem is how to i get "everyone" to show up under "group or users names" i have turned off password on both computers, but the problem is still there.

Access Is Denied To Second Hard Drive

I accidentally locked myself out of my send hard drive, my (l:) drive. I right clicked the drive, opened properties, and opened the security tab.

I have even enabled the built in administrator log in using the cmd.exe. Now when i try to open the l: drive an "access is denied. " Error appears. When i open the properties for the l: drive the security tab is no longer present. However, it is still present on all other drives'/folders' properties.

Can't Access C Drive On A Network

I have set up networking on my two windows 7 computers and one windows xp computer. I have selected to share the c drive on all three machines but when i attempt to access the c drive of my windows 7 pcs from another network pc be it the xp or the win 7 pc i get a message saying i don't have privileges to access this folder. What do i need to change in my win 7 network setup to access this directory from my other computers?

Fyi, i can see and access the windows xp c drive from both win 7 computers. If i share individual folders in the root drive i can share them but that means i have to select every folder i want to share. Xp worked great with network sharing, win 7 not so great. I do like, no love everything else about windows 7. One great operating system.

Cannot Access Cd/dvd Drive Missing

Hp dv6646us laptop upgraded to windows 7 - retail version 3 or 4 mos ago just noticed my cd/dvd drive is missing, it is not listed under the device driver i tried several online fixes to no avail. I plugged in my flash drive which is usually drive g and the drive g flash shows up and the cd/dvd drive e, also ! But the drive e (cd/dvd) shows the flash (again) as the subdirectory.

The usb flash drive works fine and is accessible but even though the drive e (cd/dvd) shows up in the device manager (when my flash is plugged in) i can not access the cd in the drive i am somewhat computer literate but afraid to mess with too much that i don't know anything about.

Win7 Will Not Map Or Access Network Drive

Windows 7 64 bit will not map or access network drive on network when connecting wifi. On copper it works fine. Windows 7 32 bit works fine on the same wireless network. I have two notebook computers. Both run windows 7. One 32 bit, one 64 bit. The network is a belkinn+ wireless router with one switch downstream. I have a wd mybook world 2 network drive on the network and connected to the switch.

When either computer is connected via copper the drive is accessible. When the 32bit computer is connected via wifi the drive is also accessible. When the 64bit computer is connected wirelessly, the drive is not accessible. It used to work. Something changed in the last few weeks and i don't know what. I think all i have done is installed microsoft updates.

Cannot Access Maxtor Usb Backup Drive

Windows 7 cannot access my maxtor usb backup drive but it shows it is working properly under device manager. It does not show that it is present in windows explorer. How do i get it to use the drive? I have a maxtor one touch external drive using a usb cable connection. I use it for backup. Windows 7 recognized it and created a backup image during install a couple of weeks ago. Since then it does not see the drive in windows explorer. Does not access it for backup. It does show up in device manager and indicates it is working properly. I have unistalled the driver and reinstalled it and the software but it still does not work.

Access Denied With External Usb Hard Drive

I messed up on this one. I was removing advanced sharing on an external usb hard drive. First i turned off sharing, then i went to the security tab and removed "everyone" which was the only user listed. I got a warning that this would only allow the originator to access the disc. Since i was the originator i clicked okay. Bad move! Now i cannot access the disc. I now realize that i should have added "administrator" to the users when i deleted "everyone".

Now for the question. Does anyone know how to restore permissions on this ntfs external usb hard drive so it can be accessed? Since access is denied, i cannot restore permissions with the advanced sharing wizard in win 7 ultimate.

Can't Access Root Folder Nas Drive

Since i upgraded from vista to windows 7 i can't access my root folder on my network drive (nas) anymore. In vista when i choose network it displayed me all networks including my nas drive, there i could select it and it would forward me to the nas root. In windows 7 it doesn't show me to nas and if i tell to go to root likezelst it will give me a permission / access error. The only way for me is to map a sub-folder on the nas directly likezelstfolder1 etc. I wanna know if i can make windows 7 show me my nas drive again and being able to access it's root folder.

Unable To Access Main Portion Of Hard Drive

I am running xp media center on a dell inspiron e1505. I wanted to be able to boot from either xp or 7 so i created a 6gb partition and loaded windows 7. I did not allocate a letter for partition.
I am only able to boot into windows 7 and my hard-drive only shows 6 gb. I have a lot of programs and information on the other 105gb portion, which i cannot access. As the hd space is 6gb, it shows i have less than 32mb of available space. N

When i click on properties for the c: drive, volume and populate i can see the remainder of the drive space with no letter assigned. What can i do to access this portion, and boot from xp again.

Unable To Access Hard Drive Because Of Password Protection

Hard drive with "windows 7" from my laptop not showing up in my other xp machine. I connect the sata hard drive through a sata usb cable. My toshiba laptop has windows 7 in it with finger printing password. After scanning my finger or entering bios password my hard disk unlocks and i can use my laptop. Now that laptop is dead because if its motherboard. The hard disk is working fine. I purchased sata usb cable and attached the toshiba hard disk to my other system which has xp through the usb port. It shows that a new hardware is installed and is ready to use but it doesn't show up in my computer or disk management.

I guess i have to unlock (by using bios password) it first and then only will be able to use it but i don't see the hard disk anywhere then how would i enter the password? I don't think it's a cable problem because the hard drive is making sound like it is working and in the xp machine it shows that the hard drive is installed and ready to use. I really need to extract the data from my toshiba hard drive otherwise i am doomed.

Sata Hard Drive To Usb Adaptor Cannot Access

I cannot get my windows 7 x64 laptop to access my sata hard drive connected via a usb adaptor. Upon connecting for the first time or after you have uninstalled the usb mass storage device, it successfully installs the drivers. But you cannot see the drive listed in "my computer" nor access it. If you go to disk management the drive is acknowledged but offline. I had no problem accessing an ide drive connected via a usb adapter that was made by the same manufacturer that makes the sata to usb i am using. I have read/wrote to this sata drive and usb adaptor plugged in several other machines using vista and xp. My sata to usb adaptor:

Access Denied On Usb Drive After Removing Permissions

I accidentally removed all the access permissions from my external usb drive, after i had already taken full ownership of the drive, and now it shows me the drive icon and letter "e:", but states that access is denied when opening. Even the "security tab" is gone from the drives properties.

I was trying to change permissions to include inheritable ones, and i hit the wrong button to remove i think(i was stupidly moving too quickly through all the options, my fault), and after that i was no longer able to access the drive. I have thousands of files on this drive!Please help, anyone? The drive still shows up within windows explorer as e:, and disk management shows it as a healthy (primary partition).
 
Update: found the fix, thank you lord! I tried going into safe mode just in case, and it worked! Go into safe mode, and login with an administrator account. From there you will be able to right click on the drive and have the "security tab" working again, where you can take ownership and add permissions back!

Error Message - Access Denied - After Transferring Hard Drive To New Pc

"access denied" error message after transferring hard drive to new computer. I have changed laptops. The monitor went out on one it was going to be $200+ to fix so i bought a new one. For the purpose of information recovery i took the hard drive out of the old laptop, vista os, and put it in my desktop plugged up sata to move the information over to my external hard drive.

I go to the users folder on the hard drive and see the owner profile and the public profile. Unfortunately none of my information is saved in the public profile. When i try to access the owner profile is says: "access is denied. " I feel that this is probably in part to the fact that i had a password on the profile. Is there a way that the password can be deleted from this file through the registry?

Trying the drive as the primary and not a secondary was a failed attempt. The drive would not boot all the way through the startup because of hardware on the desktop. I am at a loss, i have looked on google for a resolution but with no prevail.
