Keep loosing MFT on WD Drives in media server
Posted 17 April 2013 - 06:52 PM
I ran a full extended test on the 2.0TB Red drive and it came back 100% - no problems. When I originally installed the drive I had an issue with no data being present, I swapped SATA ports and it worked just fine. This machine has been up for over a year with no real operational.
I plan to replace the SATA cable as a precaution, but is there anything else I should do or adjust to prevent MFT loss in the future, assuming no hardware issues?
-Change drive write permissions?
-SATA controller driver/setting change?

Heck tried a different OS?

From MSDN: "...Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and Windows Server 2003 R2 do not support 512e or 4Kn media. While the system may boot up and be able to operate minimally, there may be unknown scenarios of functionality issues, data loss, or sub-optimal performance. Thus, Microsoft strongly cautions against using 512e media with Windows XP or other products based on the Windows XP codebase (such as Windows Home Server 1.0, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows XP 64-bit Edition, Windows XP Embedded, Windows Small Business Server 2003, and Windows Small Business Server 2003 R2).

I was surprised that Red tech support after asking me several times about what O/S I was running didn't say anything about it. I wonder how many XP users have RMA'ed a drive or lost data because of this relatively unpublished issue.
Thanks for the insight...
