I had some trouble this morning with my computer. When i logged in i got a bunch of error messages saying:

The system failed to flush data to the transaction log. Corruption may occur.

and:

Application popup: Windows - Delayed Write Failed : Windows was unable to save all the data for the file D:\$Mft. The data has been lost. This error may be caused by a failure of your computer hardware or network connection. Please try to save this file elsewhere.

also, when i looked in the event log i noticed that it has been logging warnings since 12:30:48am yesterday saying:

An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk1\D during a paging operation.

Has anyone seen this before?

Thanks!

a couple more details if you want them.. after i hit ok on the error messages and logged in it was running pretty slow with outlook hanging and such. My external drive didnt show at all which makes me think the errors were pertaining to it. Since it was going so slow i went to command prompt and issued a "shutdown -r -t: 00"

when the computer was starting back up it hung on the mobo's splash screen as if it weren't post'ing. I restarted it a couple of times and finally decided to open the case and see if maybe the processor was getting hot. After moving the case to get to the back to take the side panel off i just randomly looked up and it was at the windows splash screen and getting ready to go to the log in screen. Has worked since with no errors messages or event log warnings. I turned off the external drive and turned it back on and it seems to be running fine. CCleaner's registry thingy didnt find and errors. I Cant seem to find my chkdsk utility to see if there were sector errors on the external HDD.

Anyone have a link to a good free HDD integrity disk check?

Thanks again!

actually the drive is an 1TB IOMEGA external HDD.. Any chance you have a resource for IOMEGA? i didnt see that in your blog post.. Maybe I'm blind?

Edit: I just opened a support ticket with IOMEGA to see if they have an integrity check and if not maybe they will help fix/replace the drive.. But if you have such a utility i would still like it too as it may be a couple of days before I get any kind of reply.

sorry for the delayed post.. The chkdsk command came back perfect. 0 files in bad sectors. i ran chkdsk /f /r /x which should fix errors on the disk(/f), locate bad sectors and recover readable info(/r), and force volume dismount if necessary making all open handles invalid(/x).

I would have posted the actual results but i ran it a couple of days ago and didnt get to post the results then.. Have rebooted a couple of times and such since then too..(normally i don't reboot unless i have to)

The drive seems to be working fine right now, havent had anymore trouble out of it or from the pc hanging up like it did. I did get a reply from iomega saying to go to their online chat for help(it wasnt there when i opened the ticket.. least i didnt see it) so I suppose i'll work from there.

I appreciate the help rshaffer61!

Thanks
