Thread: file or directory is corrupted and unreachable


Forum: The Rant Room

My external hard disk (partitioned) is now playing up. Im getting the error file or directory is corrupted and unreachable Damn, just got Hellgate and few other things. I moved it onto there and no probs. But now anything I try to access, I get the error "the file or directory is corrupted and unreachable" So pissing me off. I cant even chkdsk it as it says "device is type RAW".

    Angry file or directory is corrupted and unreachable

    My external hard disk (partitioned) is now playing up. Im getting the error

    file or directory is corrupted and unreachable

    Damn, just got Hellgate and few other things. I moved it onto there and no probs. But now anything I try to access, I get the error

    "the file or directory is corrupted and unreachable"

    So pissing me off. I cant even chkdsk it as it says "device is type RAW".

    Can see the folders in windows and got loads of stuff on there (over 100gigs worth of backups).

    Ive started GetDataBack running, hopefully it can retrieve my files.

    Damn Western Digital drive as well.

    Anybody else experience this?

    Grrr!!!!

    Its a WD Essentials. I cant backup as its not accessible.

    GetDataBack is a superb tool. Im currently running that, normally a good success rate, Im hoping that success rate continues.
    Will backup onto my PC, then onto dvd's!!! (if I can get the files back)
    then reformat that partition.

    Thank god I partitioned it. The other two partitions are fine.

    Think partition is well and truly knackered. Nothing seems to work.
    Oh well.

    Can you get the hard drive out of the enclosure and put it into your machine?

    "There must be some kind of way out of here,"
    Said the joker to the thief.
    There's too much confusion,
    I can't get no relief.

    Sorry Rat, I was just really pis*ed off at a newish western digital playing up.

    I connected it to my laptop (problem was on desktop at home) and it seemed fine.

    So now the issue is, is it playing up or something wrong with my desktop. Either way Im not touching it now until when I get home at the weekend and backup everything.
