Fix Error performing inpage operation

I can see the disk on my Mac and the Desktop in WIN7 but cannot see or access the files. Error message from my Desktop says "error performing inpage operation" I tried CHKDSK from the Server which has the 3TB attached, but no files/folders can be seen. No access to my 3tb external drive [FreeAgent GoFlex Drive] . It shows Used space = 1.2 TB and unused space = 1.4 TB -- but NO ACCESS NOR FOLDER VIEW!

Did you try unhide/reset attribute? in Windows you can use "attrib" command. Since you familiar with "chkdsk" command, so i assumed you have no problem how to use "attrib" command. Good luck!

SOURCE: Windows 98 driver for FreeAgent

If your PC is still running Win98 then it probably has a USB version 1.0 port. I don't think the Faster USB version 2.0 devices will work properly even if you have the correct driver - i.e. you have a hardware version conflict. Try Purchasing a USB version 2.0 Daughter board for the PC and plugging the Seagate drive into that iinstead.

SOURCE: Can't open HDD drive

Hi
1. Start > Run > type in cmd then click OK to get a command prompt.
2. Type in chkdsk e: /r (replace e: with the drive letter of your external hard drive).

This won't do any harm, it will fix errors on the disk and try to recover data from bad sectors. It might not solve the problem but it's worth a try. Jyo

SOURCE: Seagate FreeAgent 250 GB cannot be opened after a chkdsk is done

Hi,

Sounds like either the drive was disconnected while running or may be having problems. CHKDSK automatically shows up if windows senses formatting or media problems. The fact that it did not complete tends to be indicative or hardware failure. Although the Freeagents are good as a series any drive can fail without warning.

If you go to www.seagate.com and download SeaTools it will allow you to test the hardware of the drive. try the S.M.A.R.T. check first as it's the quickest test and will spot most early drive failure with ease.

If the drive passes the smart test try the short generic, then the long generic. If any of them fail you likely have a dead/dying drive and will need professional help recovering your files, a service I perform as a part of my everyday job. If it passes them all then the problem is logical and although you can ask a pro to fix it you can download some inexpensive software that will get you files back(on a different drive) the simply use the freeagent software to reformat the unit and continue using it normally.

SOURCE: External Hard Drive I/O Error

Somehow i tried to format and it was formatted. took pretty long time as 1 terabyte. i thought all is ok as the drive was accessible. Just to double check, i scanned the drive thorugh the seagate manager and it got stuck on 10% for few seconds and then said that the hard disk is faulty and should be immediately returned if under warranty. and to confirm it also gave me read errors http://www.dtidata.com/resourcecenter/2007/05/15/how-to-tell-hard-drive-physical-damage/

so i'm giving it to seagate service centre as it probably has physical faults, bad sectors. and someone told me that 1TB hard drives are not stable.

SOURCE: My Freeagent external hard drive doesn't show up on My Computer

Your Mac would have formatted the Seagate drive as HFS+ (journaled) format. If you have access to a Mac, copy your data off the Seagate to any Mac, then use your PC to reformat the Seagate drive in FAT32 format. Macs recognize FAT32 format, and can store data in it, but can't create the format. The Mac holding your data can store it on the Seagate in the FAT32 format, and you can then copy the files to your PC. Hope this helps.

Hi ahmad1353,

You might be experiencing some problem with the hard drive itself so here's what you can try;

Open command prompt(if your using Windows): Click start -> Run(if your using Windows 7 just type CMD on the start search) type CMD and press Enter.

On the Command Prompt(black screen with a blinking cursor) type the following command;

chkdsk [drive:] /F - wherein [drive] is the drive letter for you Seagate external hard drive(to check just double clieck MyComputer(Computer for Windows 7) and look for the drive letter. This should scan the external hard drive for any problems and hopefully provide a fix for you to be able to access your files.

V:\ is not accessible Error performing inpage operation


To expand upon what ikkenom said, this will work much better done from the command line.

(Assuming Windows XP)
Click "Start", "Run...", type "cmd" and click [OK] or press [Enter]. From the command line type "chkdsk V:\ /F". You can optionally include the "/R" option to check for bad sectors on the disk (Be patient, this will take a long time, especially if there are bad secors).
If this fails, add the "/X" option. This dismounts the volume before proceding. You may need to reboot afterwards before examining the drive.

A MS article describing this error implies that is is likely a physical disk error and the technical reason why the error mistakenly implies a paging fault: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;141117

I know how distressing it can be to loose pictures and video you've worked so hard to acquire/produce. Good luck!

1. I need to know the brand name , model number , or motherboard you have

2. I need to know what operating system you are using

and when you say open , in what manor do you mean open , in what way are you attempting to open the drive and with what program , so far it looks like you may need to reinstall the computers operating system from scratch , because something is dead wrong , and it looks like a file system error , as if your computer operating system is no longer able to access files properly.

I consider your situation unresolved at this time untill you can give me more information.

I'm trying to reach guru status here in order to help people like you in a far more proper manor.

together we can solve it.
