Ok so I just got home from work and rebooted my pc since it had been doing defrag all day.

Once that was done I suddenly noticed that my E: drive was gone (it was there went I left for work), c d and f drives where still there and the same goes for my dvd and cd drives (also drive letters where still the same, just the E was gone)...

A quick check in disk management led to this horror :

Ok no biggie I guessed and tried to reactivate it, which then led to this :

Dammit, but ok I went into the system logs and found these 3 entries :

What the hell has happend to my E drive and how do I get it back? :(


Its a raid drive btw, using 2x150g blabla disks
Also I would like solutions what might/will work from within Windows, my monitor is fucked up so when the resolutions get too low the screen goes black (eg no bios tinkering nor otherwise for me)

You named your PC "MONSTERKILL"?

In a slightly more constructive post, your drive has a physical defect. That being a bad block... which means you'll probably lose the data stored in that sector. There are a bunch of tools that can recover data, but they're not guaranteed to work. Just have a look around, do a search on bad blocks and you'll probably get a bunch of tools to attempt it.

The pc name is a 'tribute' to my hardcore UT (the original, not the fucktard versions that came later) playing days :P


Bleh so I just need to find a program which can fix the bad block, and then I should be ready to rumble again ?
Also I guess said kinda programs are run from dos/bootup or something, considering how the drive is 'missing' in windows and all that jazz

i've used getdataback succesfully a couple of times, was worth the few bucks i spent on it.

you can download a demo to see if it can do any good for you at all
(the demo version can only recover a limited number of files)

and it runs from windows

Yes Xi I did :( Along with 3k mp3s roughly, some of em very old self made ones of cds I no longer have also some 'rare' ones.

I used a program called DRevitalize (http://www.drevitalize.go.pl/ quite a good program tbh) it found 2 bad blocks and fixed them, so now it should be working again.

But Im stuck with the 2 other errors where windows claims it cant reactivate them due to 'no valid configuration', is this only fixable by going into the raid setup during boot ?
