I have a 4tb external hard drive that started having cyclical errors, so I ran chkdsk. Chkdsk never completed so I aborted, restarted. I left it running overnight and through the next morning. When I came back home that evening after work, chkdsk aborted, saying there was not enough disk space to delete errors.
The problem is while the volume shows up in my computer, I cannot access files until chkdsk has completed. Surely there is a way around this?
One other wrinkle--my drive is encrypted with truecrypt, and I am using chkdsk from the truecrypt application. Please note that the volume will mount via truecrypt, I just cannot access the files.
Thanks in advance everyone.
Edit: I am using an hp elitebook with Windows 7.
