    Welp, it happened again- Media PC System Disk got Wracked


    It has been over 2 months since this last happened.

    I think it was because I had to do a couple of forced reboots on my Media Machine, and I did not check the drive after I did it, I used CHKDSK from within windows 8 and it said I was OK. But I neglected to check for Read Element Failure using GWscan/WDdiag.

    It all starts with Windows 8 not responding quickly - It starts showing the Aperture Circle rotating, when you go from Application to Application, or moving from Explorer Window to another Explorer window. Or, in the case of this morning, I was watching something on VLC, and it began stuttering. At first I thought it was my Settings for Playback in VLC so I changed them and when I tried to restart the app, it would not come up. Then my system totally froze up when I pulled up Task Manager. So I did a hard reboot.

    After that, the system appeared to boot up but it froze solid. So I checked my 500GB System disk and sure enough, Read Element Failure. I'm using GWscan now to fix it. My latest advice has been to use Vivard to do a drive remap, but that is bad advice so I apologize to a few people I told to use Vivard - Don't use Vivard unless GWscan or WDdiag returns a "Too Many Errors to Fix" message, Then and Only then should you use Vivard, and I would not use Vivard on any SSD drives.

    I've posted a hundred times, Read Element Failure can cause all manner of errors, it will make Windows 8 become unstable, it can cause your system to get stuck in a Boot Loop. This is why I always say, check your Hard Drives FIRST before you get into more detailed repair procedures. If you check your drive, and it finds errors, fixes them and you are still in a reboot loop, then you can try Automatic Repair from an Install Disk- But only after running a CHKDSK from a bootable media like Hiren's Boot CD- When you use the Mini XP which is on that disk, Windows 8 can still be checked using the XP CHKDSK from a command line.

    I started GWscan about 15 minutes ago and now It's a third of the way done, GWscan and WDdiag, which are both the same program, usually take about 1 hour and 15 minutes for a 500 GB drive, maybe a little longer for a TB drive. Vivard on the other hand, can take up to 4 hours just for an 80 GB drive!

    So I apologize for telling a few people to use Vivard to fix what GWscan or WDdiag could have fixed much more quickly. Only use Vivard when your drive has too many errors to fix conventionally using those other two programs.

    Another sign of Read Element Failure will be an increased Temperature on the drive - It it becomes hotter than 50 centigrade, you should run GWscan. Both of my SATA drives were incredibly hot this morning, so I get to test my Seagate 1 TB drive after I'm done with the 500 Gigger.

    My problem with the Media PC is that I keep the main drives outside of the case for quick Hot Swap. I used to keep them in a couple of cheap SATA cases but they were Kingwin and sucked. I keep them laid out flat from an Open Case, and my cat likes to play with the wires and sit on my hard drives. Heh. Does anyone know what kind of case I could use to mount an HP Pavilion Asus MN2 NodusN Motherboard? The connections do not look proprietary...

    5 more minutes... then I can test my 1TB drive...

    Yow! Well, it was 2 months since I had to do this, now all that is left is starting Windows 8 and see if it runs any further Repair processes.

    Code:
    Enter a Drive Letter Only ( Example. C ): eThe type of the file system is NTFS.
