New HDD - Getting CRC and Deep Path errors??
Hi everyone, first post from myself.
Got a bit of a new hardware problem with my desktop.
Recently lost my HDD along with all my music, movies, photos etc.
I bought A new HDD and fitted it myself (its a Seagate 3.5" IDE) Im not particularly techie, but managed to do this ok I think.
I then set about replacing all my lost data so got down to some heavy downloading.
I also had around 20gig of music on my I-River which I wanted to transfer to my HDD.
The first few folders copied over no problem but then I started to get the following errors.
Data error (cyclic redundancy check)
Cannot copy the path is too deep.
Also when I restarted the PC I got a message about repairing clusters that seemed to freeze at about 13%
As I said I am no techie whatsoever, there are two things that I can think of that may be a problem.
When I done a fresh Windows install on my new HDD, I made the partition wrong and ended up with a 10gig HDD and 70gig of unallocated space.
I tried to fix this and now have the small 10 gig drive which has all My Documents, Program Files etc and a seperate e:drive with my other 70 gig
which I have been using for storing all music files etc. Could this be causing any problems.
Also when installing Windows I opted for FAT32 instead of NTFS, I wasn't really sure what I was doing at this point
as I had nothing to reference.
Any help is much appreciated.
