  1. http://www.addonics.com/products/host_cont...er/ide_scsi.asp While the headline "enjoy scsi speed using cheap ide drives" is a tempting headline, a review from storage review would be more convincing. Anyone tried this product ?

    Corrupt FAT(32) Table

    If your FAT table is toasted, try DriveRescue http://home.arcor.de/christian_grau/rescue/ If the partition table is toasted, try Active Partition Recovery to perform logical partition recovery http://www.active-undelete.com/products.htm TheActive programs are DOS based.

    Diskeeper hosed 75GB of data. Please help!

    My sympathies - just went through a DR exercise. Suggest u buy a replacement drive to clone to and use Norton Ghost 2002 to do the cloning. Disconnect original drive !!! and run Drive Rescue from within windows against the clone ( http://home.arcor.de/christian_grau/rescue ) It will recover files without reference to the FAT table on a cluster by cluster basis. Your milage may vary - I regularly defrag and this helped. In my case both the FAT table and Partition tables were toast. Eventually used Mandrake 7.0 linux CD to correct the partition table. Tried Active @Unerase/Active @Partition recovery. These did not recover files where FAT is broken, but Drive Rescue did ! Note that being windows based u avoid manual efforts to recover original long file names that are lost by DOS based recovery tools I tried.

    60 GXP still kickin'

  5. Try the links in my GET DFTVIEW subject posting ... still "learning" Mandrake 8.2 Konqueror :oops:

    Get DFTVIEW

    This program will reveal information that DFT collects. Maybe you will be able to determine whether any blocks have gone bad ... http://www.cooling-solutions.de/html/artik...dftview_ger.htm And to display SMART attributes for IDE drives by clicking the task bar ... http://www.private.peterlink.ru/tochinov/D...DTemp/DTemp.zip Or for a commercial solution : http://www.santools.com/smart/eval.html

  10. I have found DTEMP fine for displaying IDE drive temperature and SMART attributes on Windows taskbar : http://www.private.peterlink.ru/tochinov/D...DTemp/DTemp.zip But this isn't working for my SCSI drives. Your milage may vary. Best bet may be trial of SanTools SMARTMon ... http://www.santools.com/smart/eval.html But if all else fails ... download IBM Drive Fitness Test and create a boot disk from it. After running the test, DFTVIEW will format the results, including max drive temperature.
  11. Check the specifications of your drive - it may have not have the device for measuring temperature. SMART began in the SCSI world (Compaq/IBM) and "migrated down" to IDE
  12. I also would like to post reliability statistics. Were the scripts for this functionality lost with the SR backups ?
  13. By way of comparison ... The following figures are for a 40Gb IBM 60GXP on Asus P3V4X. I think the power supply may be a little under powered for a total of 3x HD. Is the value of 200 for UDMA CRC error count serious ? And should I power down the PC when dtemp reports 41 degrees at the drive ? I think this is above IBM recommended temperature range..

  14. A colleague's PC has reported that the hard drive should be replaced. This report came in the form of a reference to S.M.A.R.T attribute 200 during the boot process. I ran IBM DFT and the equivalent Fujitsu utility to investigate. Both said the drive is ok. Fortunately DFTVIEW provides more details. I would like to replace a drive before it errors out ...
