As I was doing my routine monthly hard drive swap, I noticed an unusual occurrence. I came to realize that upon shutting down the server and removing the hard disk, I somehow lost the boot sector on the /dev./md0. This has left ne with no other option but to boot from another server with the secondary Hard Disk being used to load data and Operating system (OS). I got this idea from the How to set up software RAID1 on a running LVM system guide. My fear is that I might lose data in md1 in the process of restoring the boot data to md0 followed by copying to /dev./sdb. The option of returning the replaced Hard Disk is out of the question as it will make me lose my back up. I have exhausted all I know. Can someone please help me?
I have a problem with my hard drive partition. I have Lenovo Z460 laptop containing Windows 7 ultimate,and it has hard disk of the size 500gb. At the moment, I have 2 primary partitions and 2 logical ones but still my hard disk has 104gb free space which can be utilized by creating a new partition. But when I try to do it I got the error saying "CANNOT CREATE A NEW PARTITION. THE DISK ALREADY CONTAIN MAXIMUM NUMBER OF PARTITIONS".
I am looking for your nice suggestions to resolve this issue. Please help me out in resolving the issue.
Thank you so much!
I have installed Windows 7 Ultimate on my Lenovo Z460 machine. The total disk space on the laptop is of 500GB. I partitioned the disk and I got 2 primary partitions and 2 logical drives plus an unallocated space of 104GB. I want to create a new partition with this unallocated space, but I am unable to do it, as this message appears:
“Cannot create a new partition, the disk already contain maximum number of partitions”
Would anyone please help me with some advice?
Thank you in advance!
One of my records from my internal hard drive is not accessible. I just replaced the name to a local disk and everytime I clicked on it to open an error message pops up and says: "The disk in drive is not formatted. Would you like to set it up?” I do not want to format it because I would lose all data inside. Is there a workaround for this? Thanks.
Is there a more efficient way of backing up data without having to undergo the tedious process of transferring the data to my external HD then to one computer then to another computer? Is there a way to link the two computers so that data transfer is easier? One PC has WinXP and the other has Win Vista. Please help because I have limited knowledge on data transfer.
I recently received this kind of error message every time I connect a device to the USB ports (see below). I am using RocketDock and it is working fine. Please help me.
I can’t use my USB ports which is driving me crazy. Rocketdock.exe – No Disk There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive \Device\Harddisk4\DR5.
When I tried to format the hard disk with 150GB disk space in Windows, an error message appeared.
I own an external hard disk and I want to check it for errors. Thus, I performed error checking from Properties>Tools. I ticked the two options: “Automatically fix file system errors” and “Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors”. For a while, I believed it stopped scanning so I decided to click the Cancel button and then the disk is unserviceable. It displayed a message: “X:\ is not accessible. Access is denied." I encountered that message again after I attempted to check for errors. Kindly help me with my problem.
