  1. The drive has only been in that machine and has always ran XP. I seem to have a new issue, upon turning on the machine today, i get the attached screen shot. The first time it was the the same, but it deleted a few files and recovered some orphaned files, but when i turn on the machine i keep getting that attached screen shot. I can not proceed past this screen unless i turn off the drive in bios. next steps? (F is the drive with the partition issue)
  2. After fixing a bsy error on my seagate 7200.11 I'm having troubke accessing any data stored on the drive BIOS recongizes the drive, windows boots, upon going to 'my computer' my drive is listed, properties shows proper capacity, but when i try to access the drive, windows wants to format the drive. i d/l testdisk, but at this point i;m in total n00b terrritory trying to fix this. what data (and where do i get it via testdisk) do you need so you guys can help me out?
  3. The good news are that you succesfully recovered form the BSY. The bad news are that you need to repair your partition(s). DO NOT allow windows to format the partition(s). Have a look at this thread: to get an idea of the procedure involved, then please start a NEW thread about the issue (you are now outside the scope of the present thread ) Ok - I'll open a new thread once i d/l testdesk Before i try to restore the partition, would there be any harm to my data if i attempted the BSY fix again to see if i get the proper, full responce after the m0,2,2,,,,,22 cmmd? thanks for your help so far.
  4. Hi, Looking for a little help trying to fix a bsy error. I followed the instructions on page 1 (and used the g-list cmmd). after the m0,2,2,,,,,22 cmmd i got something simular to this: F3 T>m0,2,2,0,0,0,0,22 Max Wr Retries = 00, Max Rd Retries = 00, Max ECC T-Level = 14, Max Certify Rewr ite Retries = 0000 User Partition Format Successful - Elapsed Time 0 mins 10 secs F3 T BIOS recongizes the drive, windows boots, upon going to 'my computer' my drive is listed, properties shows capacity, but when i try to access the drive, windows wants to format the drive. is this okay to do or will i lose data if I allow windows to format the drive. or should i try running through the bsy fix again? the only possible issue i have found so far, is when i power up the drive prior to the m0,2,2,,,,,22 cmmd, i get a garbage character (i was using a ext. power supply) sorry if this has been answered already, i tried to search.
