My media PC gave me the BSoD with a stop code that the WD6400AAKS was toast yesterday. It would not boot or repair so I pulled a brand new Element external I had sitting around apart and was pleasantly surprised to find a WD2001FASS in there. Swapped it in, ran repair and image disk and now it’s up and running win7 sp1… but only showing 640gb.
Right click computer shows 640, device manager volumes shows 1907728mb capacity with 2 volumes, C: 600523mb, D: 9954mb, and 1297251mb unallocated space… Kind of there, but not showing up. Any ideas?
OT: plugged the 640 into the elements board and ran lifeguard diagnostic and got too many bad sector errors to even run.
