Question about Western Digital Caviar SE WD1600AAJS 160 GB SATA Hard Drive
Hello Dear mellom,
Thanks for providing me solution to my PC problem in last week. My PC is working fine so for with window loaded in E drive of hard disk
Problem with C Drive :
(1) I could see some files with folder maned as Window. This was deleted and tried to formate with NTFS as well as FAT32 but message appears as follows " Window could not complete formate.
(2) Now no more files are seen in drive C however it still shows 284 MP occupied space by some files
(3) While booting the PC it shows window XP professional files at 2 places (It does not Indicated Which drive Each XP is ?). It ask to select one of them however booting start on default selected file after about 20 secs and Window Xp get configured and PC start working normal.
(4) I have tried disc check up and clean up of files from C drive > right click >properties >clean disc disc.
Can u guide me to restore C drive of hard disc from here now.
The 160 GB hard disc is mgfd. by Western Digital (WDC) and is under 5 years warranty. How is performance of this hard disc and shall i get this replaced under warranty. This hard disc was purchased on 24th May 2008 (i.e. 1 week before.)
First of all here is the explanation of what has happened to drive c:
unfotunately the damaged area in your hard drive is in c most probably drive c is unusable any more .
the reason that u see 2 windows xp professional at start up is that there was an incomplete windows instalation in drive c.
i think drive d is safe but since the hard disk is still under warranty i strongly advice you to give it back and get a new one.
