I have 4 Blue WD10EALS drives in a RAID5 enclosure. I can drag and drop files no problem and the WD Software says that the RAID has passed the tests.
However, I get an error that says that it cannot find the appropriate sector whenever I try to write a backup to these drives (have tried many times with different software). Again, the software passes the test.
So in windows, I tried to run chkdsk /r but it gets stuck and wont finish. So I used my Windows disk to enter command prompt in recovery mode to run chkdsk /r. It gets stuck on stage 4 and won't complete. It has been sitting there for more than a day.
I think I was able to complete chkdsk /f but the backup still won't write. I have a lot of data on the RAID so a reformat is not an option. What should I do?
