  • KCPMW Jan 28, 2009

    I have a Dell Dimension 4550 which started making a funny noise and then did not boot up on the next start.

    Received this error when running the diagnotics: Error Code 0F00:1348 IDE device failed. Target drive aborted the command.

    Pressed F2 when in boot up to check settings - BIOS. Harddrive: unknown.

    Got into DOS and could perform chkdsk & scandisk ok and DIR provided list of files from the hard drive.

    Where should I go from here.....seems like the disk is fine but windows is not recognizing it. Tried reloading the drivers too.

    Any input is welcome.

The Windows Backup and Restore feature allows you to save files and system images to external backup devices such as hard drives and flash drives. However, backing up files become problematic if the directory your backing up files from isn't configured properly, or if you're having issues with the devices you're backing files to. There are ways to solve or work around backup problems quickly and safely.

Hard Drive b> A backup will not complete if the files you're backing up exceed the amount of space left on the external hard drive. If you're backing up large system files, Microsoft recommends saving the backup to an external hard drive that can hold at least 200 GB. If you're running out of space, you must delete content to create space for others or use another hard drive. Error Codes In some cases, Windows displays the following error codes when it's unable to complete a backup: "0x80070001 (Invalid Function)" or "0x81000037: Windows Backup failed while trying to read from the shadow copy on one of the volumes being backed up." These error messages usually appear if Windows is unable to backup a specific library or if you opt out of adjusting your backup settings and settle for the default settings in the Windows Backup and Restore Feature. Reparse Point b> If you're unable to backup a specific library and run into error code messages, removing the reparse point allows you to complete the backup. A reparse point is a file that contains information about the user on a computer. If it doesn't point to a location that contains some of the data you want to backup, error messages appear when you try to back up your files. Type "CMD" in the Start Search box to open the Command Prompt. In the Command Prompt, typing "DIR /AL /S" and pressing Enter lists the reparse points. Each entry says "JUNCTION," which also means reparse point. The entries also tell you the location of the reparse points in Windows Explorer. If you locate a specific reparse point in Windows Explorer, delete its mounted volume from the device's Properties. Once deleted, you should be able to back up your files. Discs b> If you're backing up files to a disc, you'll run into problems if the discs are non-rewritable and already contain data, or if they are severely scratched or damaged. Non-rewritable discs can only be used once, while rewritable discs can be used to read and write data several times. If the CD or DVD you're using is severely scratched, the optical disc drive spins harder than usual in an attempt to read it. If it's incapable of reading the disc, the backup feature may freeze or display an error.

I dont know exactly how to explain the problem its just when i start the machine its sais backup your files(which i already did) and then start hdd self test in f10 setup,but when i try to do that its said...


It seems that Windows has detected a mechanical failure of the hard drive and is suggesting that you backup to other media prior to catastrophic failure. I suggest that you back up immediately, and if under warranty have the hard drive replaced by the manufacturer.

I Can't copy anything from my hardrive to my mobile everytime i got this message "Cyclic Redundancy Check" what should i do ?


Cyclic Redundancy Check (CRC) failures are a usual symptom of a hard drive that was improperly written to or is incapable of being written to properly. The CRC failure shows up when you try to copy a file off that was written to a bad part of a disk or using faulty hardware within the hard drive.
There are a few tools out there that are capable of recovering files from a failing drive. However, first, I'd recommend getting as much data backed up off of the drive as possible using standard backup methods (Windows Backup, manually copying, etc). Once that is done you can use a program like Recover My Files (http://www.recovermyfiles.com/) or Recuva (http://www.piriform.com/recuva/download) both of which work very well at restoring files IF the file was 1) accurately written to the drive properly in the first place and 2) the portion of the drive being used by that file is somewhat usable still.
Hope this helps!

Computer won't start; hard drive failure?


What version of Windows is that?
There are: Win XP Home, XP Media center, XP Professional... First time i hear 2002.
Best think for you to do is to backup your files and reformat your drive.
Because you can't access Windows safely, you should take your hdd to another PC.
I suspect on : MS Windows bug or hard drive error.

Constantly getting write data to media errors


If you're using the MS Backup utility, it's creating .BKF files which are very large (1-2GB+). Your external hard drive uses a FAT32 file system, which has a limitation of 4GB per file. If your backup files are over 4GB, it won't copy. It probably worked on your 250GB hard drive because it was formated with NTFS and not FAT32. You'll need to limit the size of your backup files to 4GB or less, or use a different utility that has file-size splitting options.

Hard disk failure


What exactly does the error say?

The safest thing to do is to stop powering up the hard drive. Get a new hard drive and adapter cable to pull the data off the old hard drive (secondary) and onto the new hard drive (primary) after the new hard drive has been formatted.

If you don't feel you can safely do that, you may want to seek the assistance of someone who can or a company that provides hard drive recovery services.

A hard disk failure error typically indicates the hard drive has (or is about to) fail and become useless.

I get a backup, but with a lot of error messages


Microsoft has some hidden directory levels and files in VISTA and in XP that are visible only when the settings for the directories in which they exist are changed from the hidden setting.  It's tedious, but possible.  I assume, then, that what you were unable to copy to your backup are these hidden files.  They're placed that way as a default in the Windows install to protect the user from accidental "mistakes". Example:  Under "users", {name},AppData,Local,...

here's what you should do.. first, as mentioned, you should backup all your important files in another drive or an optical drive... once you have done it, format your hard drive and perform scans to check the error.. during scan, you will see errors on it and you may not be able to fix it since the drive is internally damaged.. purchase a new one ok? just make sure to backup all your files..
