Leo, I'm having CRC when I try to run a program on windows VISTA. Although this file has been run on other computers, but I do not know what the problem is.
Thanks in advance
I am facing Data error (cyclic redundancy check).
in external seagate 80GB harddisk, That doest show pratition size also in my computer.when i try to open that drive it does give Data error (cyclic redundancy check). How to fix this. I have important data in that drive. Please help me.
not sure if i entered the command correctly. What is the outlook part in the third line.
when i try to copy contents of a DVD, cyclic redundancy check error appears. I just got a new hard drive. And I am no good at this stuff. Please help
CHKDSK /R worked fine for me. The icon for the faulty drive D was showing but I couldn't access any of the data and the drive wouldn't boot up. I started by installing a 2nd copy of xp on a separate drive and setting it as the boot drive in BIOS. This became C and the faulty one D. By using c:/chkdsk/r d: the 5 stage checking process began and after it finished I was able to read and access all the data and, most importantly, copy all relevant data onto C. When I'm finished with it drive D will be dumped!
thank you so much....
keep it up
I followed the redundancy correction advice precisely several times. Though copy to nul worked just fine the xcopy /c to a different drive still gave the same redundancy failure. Any other Ideas? I will be running Chkdsk /r again tonight. Thanks for any thoughts.
I have a hard drive with many bad sectors. I was not able to salvage many documents and photos off of it because of CRC errors. Chkdsk/r found and tried to repair files, but many were still not able to be copied to my new hard drive. Following your advice, I began to use SpinRite, which does seem to be an excellent tool for bit-by-bit data correction, but I realised this was impractical after an hour of correction and calculating that it would take about 200 days to correct the 80 GB drive.
Looking for a better solution, I found Roadil's Unstoppable Copier. This let me target only the files I needed and the files appear copied and readable (as best I can tell, uncorrupted). Even on files that it reported read errors, the new copy opens correctly and I do not see any errors. This all just occurred so there may be problems I don't know about, but I seriously think you should mention this product on your CRC Error page. By the way, for me at least, XCOPY /c/s stopped itself after a few errors. Apparently the /c does not keep overriding after a few error messages (more than one, less than ten).
All things to consider mentioning in your article. Thank you anyway, despite the limits of your advice.
Hi Leo - great article. Mine is .pst file. I've tried the xcopy /C you suggest to an external drive and I get a 'File create error: data error (cyclic redundancy check)'.
