I hope I can explain this in the best way possible because I am going insane here.
I bought a 2TB drive Green, filled it up with about 50GB left after about 6 months usage. Then I rebooted and it took forever to get passed the Windows Loading screen. but I got in. I then looked at my HDD’s and say it sayd “Local Disk” as the volume name. I couldn’t access it anymore or do anything with it. BIOPS see its and when I go into the Drive Management area it sees it but its now says RAW instead of NTFS.
I was great so I used data backup software and it saw all teh files in perfect condition and I bought another Green 2TB and dumped it over. I still have the drive sitting here.
FF to 6 month later to today and I filled up the new drive to about 4GB left, I installed a program which made me reboot so I did normally and bam samething again as before “Local disk” and cant view anything.
I know the data is there like last time but 2 in a row with the same issue? Something is up. Maybe MBR corrupted? Can I fix that to get the drive back?
Plug in either drive
Boot the PC
takes 10x longer to get into windows
Cant view teh drives normally in windows says RAW in Device
Unplug the drive
load windows in 25secs like before
I need help figuring out what is wrong because I have 2 drives I can’t use currently.
My specs are:
Crucial SSD 128M Main drive for OS/programs
EVGA P55 SLI E655 MB / 4GB Ram
i5 750 non o/c
EVGA 460 GTX
Windows 7 w/update to date patches
