Hangs / Freezes While Transferring Files From Sata Drive To Raid 0


Windows 7 hangs/freezes while transferring files from my e drive (sata) to my c drive (raid 0 sata). Every time i try to move a large group of files, the copy process will lock up about 40 seconds in. I can move smaller groups of files, liek 100-200mb or less and everything works fine, but if i try to move a gigabyte or more, the system will freeze.

Motherboard: asus p5n-d 750i
Cpu: q6600
Os: windows 7 64bit
Ram: 8 gig's ddr2 800

Remove Drive From Raid / Change Sata Mode From Raid To Ahci

Remove a drive from raid then change sata mode from raid to ahci, situation: i have 3 physical hdds: 1 ssd and 2 identical mechanical drives. The ssd stores the win 7 x64 pro installation while the mechanical drives, in raid 1, store data. The sata mode is set to raid at the moment. I want to remove a mechanical hard drive, thus, breaking the raid. Using the intel raid manager interface, i think i will still have all the data on the 2 mechanical hard drives.

Then, i will want to change the sata mode to ahci (1) because i will no longer have a raid (2) i want to enable trim for my ssd. Questions: how will changing sata mode to ahci affect my os installation? Should i change the mode before or after i remove a raid member? Will i have to reinstall windows?

Win 7 Freezes And Restarts When Transferring Files Through Usb

I have been having this problem since the day i got windows 7 and it is really starting to annoy me.
Any time i transfer files through any usb port the computer freezes, a buzzing noise comes from the speakers, the monitor turns off and the computer restarts. This happens when putting films on my hard drive, songs on my phone and syncing my mp3 player so that i actually can't do any of them.

I have uploaded the dump files here:

Win 7 Upgrade Freezes At "transferring Files, Settings, And Programs"

While upgrading to windows 7, i reached the install window and my system completed each listed item with a check mark next to: (copying windows files), (gathering files, settings, programs), (expanding windows files), and (installing features, . ). However, the last item (transferring files, settings, programs) has reached 63% complete status but has frozen at that point for the past several hours without a change.

Problem Transferring Files Using Usb Drive

I am trying to use windows easy transfer via usb to transfer files and some programs new computer: i have a 16gb flash drive. When i try to d/l win easy trans file from desktop old computer to the flash drive, dialog box comes up saying 'too large file - open program and delete some files  or change to other program. I can not seem to make either work. Any suggestions?

The machine is working and many of my programs ie; office, quicken, etc are also working, however a number of other programs are not. I thought getting a print out via windows easy transfer would be useful in determining other changes needed. The computer builder may have transferred over as much possible via a hard wire between two computers, i can not find out as as he will be out of the country for a year. (In national guard, guess where he will be for a year!)
 
Question: if he transferred most over via hard wire drive to drive, can i still use windows easy transfer to check out what is left? Any suggestion?

Setup Raid Array Delete All Files On Old Drive

I added a new drive and set up a raid array. This deleted all the information on my old drive. I already performed a clean install of windows 7 home premium on the new array. Now i cannot use my product key because i have the upgrade disc. Is there a way for me to input the keys to my older versions of windows so i can use the upgrade key? If i call microsoft, will they activate my windows if i provide them my vista key? I am trying to prevent installing the entire os again.

Compatibility List Of Sata Raid Hba Devices

My hp workstation has an embedded intel 82901 sata raid controller that does not work with windows 7. Apparently intel has no plans to provide drivers.

I need to find an hba that will work with my machine and also supports windows 7. Just finding the list of compatible disk controllers would probably be an important start, but i can't find that. Any suggestions (or maybe even a link) would be appreciated.

For reference, this is an hp xw8200, and the appropriate sata hba will support pci-x 133 64-bit.

Win 7 64 Bit Does Not Recognize File System On Sata Raid

Windows 7 64 bit ultimate (installed on single ide drive) does not recognize file system on sata raid pairs set up previously with xp. I recently upgraded to windows 7 64 bit ulitimate using a (single) ide drive. I also have two sata raid pairs on my pc, one mirrored, one striped. I installed drivers (asus m2a-vm_hdmi mobo) that enabled w7 to recognize the drives, but as far as w7 is concerned, they're brand new blank drives that need formatting - and both pairs have data that i do not want to lose.

When i double click a raid drive icon through explorer, w7 tells me i need to format the drives, when i decline, i get a "x: is not accesbile. The volume does not contain a recognized file system. Please make sure that all required file system drivers are loaded and that the volume is not corrupted" error.

How do i get access to the files on these drives through w7?

2x Raptor 10,000 Rpm Sata Raid 0 Drives Reported 12 Ms

My 2x raptor 10, 000 rpm sata raid 0 drives are being reported at 12. 98 ms avg access time! I built a new system w/ win 7 pro 64 and two 10, 000 rpm raptor sata drives set up as a raid 0 array (c: drive). Everything was up and running before i put my old 240 gb ata133 ide drive (old c: now d:) in to see what utility and progs i could use on a 64 bit sys. Afterwards sys info and active disk manage reports my raid array as disk:1 and the ide as disk:0. Why?

And does it matter? Although the ide reports as a master drive because it's the only drive on the ide bus but that shouldn't matter. I should have mentioned my bios settings: the ide drive isn't even listed for a boot device. (Don't know why. Maybe b/c i'm booting off the sata raid array? This is on an asus m4a78 plus motherboard. ) It always boots to 7 off the array no matter if the ide is in or not. There's no problem w/ operation and all of my drivers, busses and drives are working fine. It's just that my access time on my raid c: boot drive is an average of 12. 98 ms and is being reported as drive 1 instead of drive 0.

The reviewed times for the wd1500 raptor are: full access= 10. 6 ms with read access at: 4. 6 ms and write at: 5. 2 ms. Does this mean win is searching for the ide first before it looks on the array for whatever action? Is this slowing down my access time? Because sandra reports my access time as 12. 98 ms, that's a little slow for a 10, 000 rpm drive. Do you think it's the system is trying the ide first or the raid interface software that's slowing it down or whatny enlightenment would be greatly appreciated!

Win 7 Hangs Up / Freezes Randomly

I just bought a dell studio 1749 with windows 7 64 bit. Randomly a program will lock up. After about 30 seconds or so the program will say it is not responding. If i right click on the program the whole program will turn a transparent white. This happens with many programs including ie, firefox, and windows explorer. I contacted dell and they did some simple maintenance but that didn't fix anything. I re-installed windows 2 times but it still didn't fix the problem. After all of this dell sent a technician to swap out hard drives. That still didn't fix the problem. It seems that if i have the battery plan on performance it helps but doesn't solve the problem.

Random System Hangs / Freezes

I have been banging my head against the wall trying to figure this one out. I am currently running windows 7 x64. At any given moment, the system will hang. Sometimes the system will go days without any issues, sometimes it will hang several times during one day. First the screen will freeze and all open programs become unresponsive, the mouse will continue to move around the screen as normal for about thirty seconds, but this time varies.

If i am watching a video or playing music, the audio will continue without interruption for several minutes, but this time will also vary. The caps lock, scroll lock, and num lock lights will continue to work also, meaning if i press any of the affor mentioned buttons, the light turns on/off like normal. The mouse, keyboard lights, and sound usually continue to work until i click the mouse buttons several times, at which point the system becomes entirely unresponsive.

My first instinct was driver issues. Noticing that the screen froze first, i assumed that the vpu was crashing and failing to recover. After several driver updates and much online research to this end, nothing had changed. I then turned my attention to drivers in general, updating all that i could, this again yielded no results. I then updated my bios and had no luck. Assuming it was not a driver issue, i examined my hardware. I thoroughly tested my hard drives, ram, and monitored loads and temperature on the cpu, vpu, and chipset.

I could not see any trends, the freezes appear to be at complete random. I do have an early amd phenom 9600 with the tlb erratum. I have tried enabling and disabling the patch in the bios
With no change. At this point i do not know what else to check. This is my most powerful pc at the moment, and i have reverted back to xp pro x86. I really like 7 over xp, but the instability in 7 makes it difficult to use for fear of data loss. Xp has no stability issues running on this same system. I have four other pc's which also have windows 7, none of them have had any issues. Some are 64-bit, some are 32-bit, all are stable.

My system specs are below: this is with the system at idle.

Motherboard: gigabyte ma790fx-ds5 motherboard - amd 790fx, socket am2+, atx, audio, pci express 2. 0, crossfirex ready, gigabit lan, s/pdif, usb 2. 0, firewire, serial ata, raid

Transferring Files From Another Hd

My old computer's hard drive had a meltdown 2 weeks ago. I got a new computer with windows 7 on it and i'm just trying to transfer the files from my backup hd onto my new hd. I thought this would be an easy transfer but it keeps telling me "you need  permission to perform this action. You require permission from the computer's administrator to make changes to this file"i keep hitting "try again" and nothing ever happens. I just hit cancel and nothing transfers. How do i fix this problem? I'm on the only account the computer has (which is an admin account) and i' getting to the end of my rope with all this.

Transferring Wma Files

When i transferred data, setting etc from old pc (xp) to new pc (windows  7) all files transferred ok except for the wma files from windows media player. When played the music is about a 2 second play then on to next song. Is this some restriction of license? Some of the music was purchased and downloaded online store. The remainder was ripped from cds that i own. The new files appear to be same size of old files. I did use the windows 7 transfer program on new and old pcs. Is there a conversion program to repair files or will all files needed to be downloaded or ripped from cds. The other possibility is i transferred them incorrectly. Any suggestions?

Transferring Outlook Files To Win7

W7 has been installed on an existing system but while files were backed up i don't think it was done in the correct manner. While i can see the . Pst files in both windows. Old & the backup location (external hd) i can't open them or transfer. Likewise if i transfer the windows contacts, windows live doesn't recognize them. Since installing w7 we are also having trouble with the sound or rather the volume. You can hear it out of the rear connection (using earphones)but not through the front or speakers. Sounds can be just heard but volume is too low to understand what is being said but the volume is set on high.

Live Mail Transferring Files

I am going to have a "clean install" done on my computer. I am upgrading to windows 7 from windows vista home premium. I know i am going to lose all of my files , programs etc but, should i copy any e-mail folders i need to keep or is it possible to download them after the install is complete.

I know one of the programs i use for mail resides on the server and one resides on my computer when i bring it up to read and then place it in a file folder.

Upgrade Fails At Transferring Files At 60%

I have a toshiba satellite m305d-s4829 laptop. I tried running the upgrade exe. Fails. I can't really catch the error message but it goes to a blue screen, and all i see is the word memory on the screen. This happened like 3 times. I read around on here, and it seems drivers can affect the upgrade process. I go to the toshiba website and download the toshiba upgrade assistant. I run it. It's automated. Does some downloads, uninstalls somethings, and prompts me to run the windows 7 iso.cool.

The upgrade gets around the same point and fails for the fourth time. What gives? I apologize for not being more specific on the error message. It clears from the screen very quickly and sometimes i even miss it. Any help is much appreciated. I rather not clean install. I have many audio production programs and i rather not have to spend days getting my stuff back in working order.

Copy Raid Drive To Another Raid Drive

I've been running 2 seagate barracuda 500 gig hdd in raid1. I recently purchased 2 wd cavier green 2tb hdd that i want to run in raid5. I have backed up all my information from my existing drive to my external and create the back up boot cd. When i go to restore the information to the new raid array i get a error message (think it was 0x80042414). I tried then to just reinstall windows 7. Problem 2 happens. It will see the 3. 6tb hdd and will partition only 2tb of the disk space even though it was specified for 3. 6tb. Even still with the 2tb drive the install fails (don't have the error code).
How can i get the drive copied to my new array?

Dvd Hangs After Loading Files And Starting Windows

Install of windows 7 h. P from dvd hangs after "loading files" and "starting windows"; just have mouse icon on black screen. I am trying to do a clean install of win7 home premium off of 32bit dvd.
Pc is 1gb ram athlon 1700xp zotac nvidia 6200 agp graphics card on a pcchips m810l mb with a 20gb primary hard drive 3gb secondary and lg dvdrom drive. My current operating system is win2k which is why i need to do a clean install from dvd as you cannot run setup from win2k.

First problem was "cannot boot from cd code 5" which i overcame by using "ultimateboot cd" which then allows win7 dvd to load. Now the problem is hang/stall. Win 7 sequence (all on black background) is "loading files" then "windows starting" with the 4 colours to make the flag then check of hard disk then nothing with large mouse icon in the middle of the screen. Cant move mouse and no keys work; left for an hour and no joy, just in case its slow.

I am running graphics through the vga adaptor and also have disabled floppy drive which i have seen as solutions to this elsewhere. Have unplugged all usb devices. Harddisk currently has win2k on it which i expect to reformat when i get that far. Do i need to format it primary disk so its empty first? Secondary disk has all my saved data on it to copy back later (also on flash drive; belt n braces.

Sata Drive Order

I have two western digital cavier (wd5001aals) drives on my new system. One is fixed and the other is in a removable vantec ez 2 swap case (mrk-300st). I'm running windows 7 ultimate 64.

The fixed drive is bootable and contains windows (c: drive). The removable drive (d:) is empty. Windows' disk management indicates that the fixed drive is 'disk 1' and the removable drive is 'disk 0'. I wish to reverse this designation. That is: the fixed drive should be 'disk 0' and the removable should be 'disk 1'. I've tried using different sata ports on the mother board but no matter how i switch them, windows always keeps the designation the same. The mother board is: asus p755d premium.

Does anyone have any suggestion on how i can resolve this issue?

Files Gone From Another Raid Hdd Array

Windows 7 upgrade torched all mp3's, documents, pictures files that were on another redundant raid hd array. Just did the vista - win7 upgrade. Made sure everything was securely backed up on my second hard drive - actually a mirrored 2 disk raid array, though on the same system. Kicking myself for not disconnecting the drives because after the install everything is gone! 150 gigs of mp3's, years of documents and photos, everything.

Two funny things:

1) the file structure is intact. Ie, i can click through folders, say e: -> music -> u2 -> joshua tree. But then i am greeted with an empty folder. The entire file structure remains but every folder is empty

Except .

2) bring up the disk's properties window and it shows that the space is being used. The files add up to around 230 gigs and the system shows this space as in use. Click properties on any individual folder, though - ie on my music - nil.

Things i tried:

Chkdsk - no errors. Various (free) file recovery programs - no deleted/corrupt files found to recover removed drives and installed into an external hd enclosure. Identical problem, both on the target system and on my laptop that is still running vista.

Transferring To External Drive Before Upgrading From Xp To Win 7

Transferring to external drive before upgrading from xp professional to windows 7 professional and trying to open a . Mig file after using windows easy transfer.

Following downloaded instructions from windows easy transfer website. However -
1. External drive came under 'network' and not with usb
2. No 'check boxes' appeared - but programme paths appeared
3. No list of programmes transfered appeared

Despite the above being different from those on the windows guide, the data appears to have been transfered to my external drive and saved as savedata. Mig file, in 'from_old_computer: it has 151, 430, 517kbs. That would appear to be all the data. However, i cannot open a mig file to check.

Moreover, i have concerns that, when i go to transfer the data back to my pc after installation of windows 7, my pc does not recognize this file. On trying toopen the . Mig file, a message said it could not oped this file, it didn't know the program which set it up, and asked if i wanted to check online for the program. It took me to the windows website, which didn't recognize it either. As mentioned, i do not want to proceed with installing windows 7 until i am certain that i can transfer my data back to my pc.

How To Prevent Users From Ejecting Sata Drive ?

Hi, i've a second sata drive (wdc wd15ears-00z5b1 if it matters), that windows 7 thinks is removable, and shows in the "safely remove hardware and eject media" applet, allowing any user to "eject" it. The hard drive is not removable, but sometimes users (non-admin) occasionally click "eject" it and remove from the system, forcing me to restart computer to bring it back. How do i disable this functionality and tell windows 7 this drive is not removable and may not be "ejected" by my users?

I just purchased a new laptop. Spent all last weekend upgrading the os to win7 pro; reinstalling all my apps; and transferring all my data. Done! I then discovered one of the usb ports didn't work.

I used the windows disk image utility. I successfully created the images on an external esata drive.
When i tried to run the windows restore utility on the new machine, it didn't recognize any available images. (The esata drive appears ok in windows explorer.
