    Paragon Hard Disk Manager™, version 10.1.19.16240 (22.11.12 ) Professional

    Windows 7 64bit

    Can anyone shed some light on why PHDM has decided the geometry on my hdd is bad?

    Thanks

    Jim,

    Can you walk me through exactly what you are doing when you get the error?
    Would you be able to take a screenshot of the error, including any relevant data within the HDM Application window?
    Is this happening on HDM Launch?

    hi Chris

    Thanks for your reply

    All Im doing is launching HDM and navigating to Disk View, which looks like this
    http://prntscr.com/v25bd

    If I click on "properties" for the "invalid volume", it shows this
    http://prntscr.com/v25ey

    So, yes, this is the status of the drive from HDM launch.

    Jim

    Has it always showed as having bad geometry?

    If not, how long did it show as a normal partition, and when did you first notice it showing as having bad geometry? Did you make any changes to the system around that time?

    What was the first date you noticed problems?

    Also, please try to resize the partition, shrink it by about 100mb and then add the 100mb back, and as always, make sure you backup your data before performing changes to the hdd.

    Seeing the same screens here. I migrated to a Samsung 840 Pro SSD using the migration software included with the SSD. Migration was successful. Computer functions normally only faster. So why post, you all say. Well it was a bit of a surprise to see HDM declaring the working SSD as invalid. Windows disk management reports everything is normal. I followed the prompts in HDM about reporting the issue with a log file. There is now a zip file created. Do I assume that HDM sent this file to someone?
    Cheers
