I have TI scheduled to take a FULL image to a drive across the LAN every Monday, then Tue-Fri it does an INCremental. Lately all the incrementals have been failing telling me the image archive is corrupt yet the FULL image on a Monday always completes without a fuss. I've since found out it's only when you try and verify this image you find it is corrupt. So basically I've lost a couple of weeks worth of images, all are now corrupt. I ran the Maxtor Powermax util on my Maxtor drive, it passed the 90sec quick test, ran the FULL advanced test and it failed, not a total failure (i.e. return to Maxtor) - it offered to repair it. I chose NO for now. Decided if it is any way dodgy just to replace with a NEW drive. So... took a FULL image across to my external firewire drive, installed nice shiny new Maxtor (same size 80gb), booted from CD, started restoring to the new drive and it fails halfway through telling me archive is corrupt. My solution was to connect the old dying drive as slave and tell TI to Clone this old drive to the new drive.... this works and my machine is up and running okay, this new drive passes the Maxtor Powermax advanced test so it appears healthy yet I am still getting WindowsXP freeze/lockup randomly. Would I be correct in guessing that maybe parts of the OS are corrupted due to the previous dying drive and simply cloning everything across to this new drive doesn't help much I may just try a Windows XP Repair over the top to see if it cures the stability. If not a complete re-install is probably about due! Any thoughts/advice anyone please? Thanks, Fedorov.
