My 3 day old 1tb my passport SE hard drive was going through the write delayed stuff, so I tried a number of fixes.
I changed the performance optimization thing through windows, and when that didn’t work, changed the settings back.
Then used the program ‘cacheset’ to change the cache. That didn’t work either, so I changed it back.
Then, I tried this… http://www.gibni.com/windows-delayed-write-failed-solved/2
Messed with the registry and stuff, and it still didn’t work. So I deleted all the registry values I’d made, and right click uninstalled the ‘max128k’ file.
This is where I think I messed up, because now it’s never detected, but the light turns on, and I can hear the disk spinning.
As I’m writing this, the drive was detected as just ‘F:’
if I go to properties, the drive has 0 bytes of 0 bytes available, and if I explore the drive, there are no files.
I DO have files in it, I don’t really care if I lose them, but it shouldn’t be empty…
please help me.
this is so frustrating
