Anyone know what this is and is therea way to recover the data on the drive. Back up yes, but is a week old. Would like to pull acouple fo file before I discard the drive and replace it.

Hello daytonasteve,

Have you run a chkdsk this tool should help repair some of the problems with the drive.

You could try PCInspector to recover files.
Regards,

Alan.

The problem sees to be so severe that the PC slows to a crawl, even presenting the blue screen of death. Disconnecting the offending drive makes everything run OK. It is so bad the pc appears from time to time as if it's locked up.

I've bought a new drive and installing it but I'd like to get some of the files off the bad drive. Given the performace of the PC with the drive connected, any suggestions as to how I can connect it and use PC inspector or perhaps boot to dos and run chkdsk?

Can you install windows on the new drive? Then you can slave the damaged drive and extract the files on the new dive.

Alan.

The damaged drive is the slave, never had OS installed on it.

If the damaged drive is the slave you can then run the file recovery tool of the primary HDD setting it to search the damaged drive.
