  • Help my 1066in1 HDD is corrupted

    Hey Folks,

    As the title says my hdd is corrupted. I plugged it into my computer
    and windows tries to run chkdsk but states file structure is corrupted.
    It actually asked me if i wanted to format it... The boot sector might
    be stuffed?

    Anyway can anyone suggest any freeware programs that might hopefully solve my problem?

    Now i know why people suggest backing up the hdd... doh

    If it is truly rooted does anyone have a backup image ?

    thanking you for assistance

    You can use an image from anyone thats close to you... If your HDD is stuffed however there is no point in an image.
    Best bet is to test the HDD first using the manufacturers test utility.

    I can provide the image if you pay postage both ways or I can sell you another HDD with the image on it....

          It is corrupted because there is no script for windows to shutdown gracefully.

          You can easily hack these multis to include a shutdown script.

            WTF??? You dont need scripts to park HDD heads anymore, that was back in the day of the dinosaur HDD's that were the size of bricks!..
            HDD's nowadays all "park" the head automatically as soon as power is cut and before the spindle stops....
            If by "park" you mean stop the OS loosing buffered writes that have not been written to disk you dont need to worry about that on multigame PCB's as its all reading except for the swap file and maybe hi-score saves if you have hacked it to work....

                Yes, I am aware of this. I meant a proper shutdown script so windows don't become corrupted. Not parking HD heads. Was thinking about another issue when I posted this.

                Anyway I PM you about a certain cabinet. Interested in the prices if you want my business.
