    HD problems

    Hi,

    I have a 60Gb 7200 rpm Maxtor HD partioned 3 ways. Untill recenlt all was fine untill i started backing up files on the 3rd partition. When that partition has 5GB free, I get application pop ups saying "Delayed Write: Windows was unable to save all the data for the file Failed\Device\HarddiskVolume3\........ "

    Also event viewer shows this error " An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk0\DR0 during a paging operation."

    i haven't been able to find much on this, any1 know what this means and how to fix it?

    Thanks in advance,
    Wolf20

    BTW system specs are:
    ABIT VP6
    Dual P3 1Ghz
    512 Mb Ram
    Win2k Advance server
    60Gb 7200 rpm Maxtor HD

    Run CHKDSK /F on the drive. In Disk Management, make sure that the drive is "Healthy".

    You mean the command-line (black "sandwich") screen?

    \Device\Harddisk0\DR0 is the entire disk. I would run CHKDSK /F for all partitions and try again.
