HDDStatus - Tool to check hard disk status, health and reliability


I've been using GoodSync for the past couple of months to chain synchronize 3 hard disk drives and ran into my first issue today. GoodSync stopped responding whilst synchronizing changes to files so I used task manager to manually end the process.

I'm not entirely sure how much damage has been caused but when I re-analyzed the file changes a lot of the changes prior to the crash was no longer listed.. So I'm unsure of the file integrity but have so far noticed some music video files are corrupt with cyclic redundancy check errors but is not easily visible to check corrupt files because they still play but parts of data are missing.

I think I've experienced cyclic redundancy check errors before when my external hard drive fell flat on it's side whilst it was playing music (3 years ago). It took me a long time to filter out the bad files because all the mp3 files worked but some songs would randomly play in others etc.. is their some type of automated CRC scanner or method to check all my files ?

Recently I've been getting this message. Originally a game started crashing when it was opened, I tried uninstalling it, but certain files couldn't be removed due to cyclic redundancy. I then tried deleting the files/folders manaully but it just stalls (and causes computer lagging) and eventually comes up with the message in the title.
While it stalls I can hear the hard drive trying to access the files. I have previously gotten this message when trying to access files off a DVD but this is the first time its happened with files off the hard drive.
I also had to reboot my PC because the lagging was so bad, when it restarted windows had reset to its default settings, i.e. desktop pitcture, sound settings, folder settings etc. Luckily all folders except my desktop folder have not been affected.

What can I do to fix this problem?
I've reset windows to the way I like it, but I want access to these folders so I can sort them out.

I copied some files from my old HP laptop with xp, burnt them with burnaware onto a dvd. Now on my new laptop (lenovo g580 W7 64bit) I tried to take them off the DVD and move to my local drive, when I was moving them from disc to drive explorer gave me a message saying 'Invalid MS-dos function' and the usual try again or cancel option.
Thinking some of the files on disc might be corrupt I ran
xcopy F:\*.*/s > C:\test1
And got the message in my topic title File creation error - Data error (cyclic redundancy check).
Now I don't have clue what this means and I can only tell you I have an output file in C, as per the command instructions, with almost all the files listed, some are missing but some of the ones there are the corrupt ones and some of the ones missing I think are fine.
Doesn't really lead me to the issue unless someone can decipher the error message I got?

This topic has probably been brought up many times before, but has there ever been a fix for the common copying error, "Data Error: Cyclic Redundancy Check"?

I know there can be many variations of the problem depending on where the data is being copied from and to, but I seem to have have found where the source of my problem is. I have been copying files (copy and paste) from 2 different makes of DVD onto my computer's main hard drive. The makes of DVD are both TDK DVD-R: an older style make with darker blue labels on the disks, and the current make of TDK DVD-R which has light blue labels.

Every time I copy files from the older style DVDs, I get the "Data Error: Cyclic Redundancy Check" notice which stops me from copying any more files from the disc. However, when I copy files from the current make of TDK DVD-R disks, all files are copied without any problems.

Is there a solution to this problem? Can the data from the older style of disks still be copied somehow? I find it strange how the error appears when copying from one make of disk, and doesn't appear when copying from the other. Any advice would be appreciated.

A:Cyclic Redundancy Check error when copying from DVDs to hard drive

When you say older "style", do you mean the disks are actually of greater age? Disks can certainly deteriorate with age. Do the same disks give CRC errors on another computer?

Your system specifications show a laptop.

But this seems to be an internal drive on a desktop.

If it is indeed an internal drive on a desktop, forthwith disconnect your faulty drive to prevent it keep spinning till you decide what you want to do with it.

Was it working alright in the desktop before and for how long?

When did it become RAW and for how long it remained connected after becoming RAW?

Do you want to format it now? ( I am asking this question because you tried formatting it.) I shall see your answers only tomorrow morning after 11 hours from now since it is already bedtime for me.

My HP Pro 4321s notebook (with Windows 7 Professional 32-bit installed) failed to boot up. 

As I did not backup the data files (this notebook was used for only a few months), I disconnected the notebook hard disk and installed it to an external disk case (SATA interface to connect my notebook harddisk and USB 2.0 interface for connection to other
PC or notebook's USB port).
After I connected this external disk to another notebook (windows 7 Professional 64-bit), a pop-up window asking me to run CHKDSK for SYSTEM (F:) appeared.  Therefore, I answered 'YES' to dismount the volume and proceed.  After CHKDSK

Then, another pop-up window appeared :  Drive G:\  You need to format the disk drive before you can use it.  Do you want to format it ?

I replied 'No' and Message : 'Error :  G:\ is not accessible.  Data error (cyclic redundancy check)' was displayed.

A:Solved: Data error (Cyclic redundancy check)

A cyclic redundancy check means the computer can't read the data off the media. Typically this happens with optical media but also happens with HDD or other magnetic media once and awhile as well. If it's on a CD/DVD try cleaning the disc and the laser lens. If it's a magnetic media use check disc to repair any errors and try again. If that doesn't work then you can try a more aggressive recovery program.

I just started to get this error message.

I am running a Win98 machine and receiving the error when printing on hy HP PSC 2210 printer. I recently started to use a TRENDnet 4-Port Bus-Power USB Hub (my PC only has two USB ports) and I was having no problems printing at all until just now. I did some research and found some solutions (ie turning off the printer, unplugging the usb cable, restarting, plugging in the USB cable, turning on the printer) but that did not seem to work. When I disconnect the hub and plug the printer in directly to the USB port I can print obviously the problem is with the hub.

Any ideas and also why it did work but now causes me problems.

I guess I should go out and buy a powered USB hub, but the ones I have seen don't seem to support Win98.

Why are you doing all of those unnecessary steps instead of just booting the Win7 installation media to delete all partitons and then create New and Format using the drive options pictured in Steps 7/8 of Clean Install Windows 7? Nothing more is needed unless troubleshooting install failure.

If you did a secure erase using DBAN that is overkill intended to overwrite data to make it unrecoverable by forensics software. It is also hard on the drive.

Try now booting the Win7 installer to create the partitions. If the error repeats run the HD maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD test, followd by Disk Check from the installer's Command Line in System Recovery Options

I get this "cyclic redundancy check error" when I try to copy files from a DVD-RW onto my hard drive. I burnt said DVD about two years ago using Cyberlink DVD Solution Power2Go. I get this error with mulitiple DVDs, but not all of them (I've got five and I get this error with only three). Also, I get the error with some files, but not others (on the same DVD). I really can't lose these files! My guess is they were burnt wrong, but I'm really not sure. Is there any way I can recover these files?

Oh, I'm using XP SP3.

Thank you!

so earlier in the year my OS hard drive crashed, and I haven't had time to work on the problem until now. (Seagate Baracuda 3.5" 500GB 7200rpm, running Win7)

I docked the HDD and plugged it into my girlfriend's laptop with a USB cable, and the drive shows up under Disk Management, but there aren't any options for mounting or formatting.

I tried running DBAN from boot, but I get non-fatal errors and the program won't run. (It runs fine with other drives)

My biggest concern isn't getting information from the drive because I was only using it (primarily) to boot from and to store my programs. No, my concern is whether or not I can salvage the drive and re-use it. I'm not that interested in buying (another) hard drive.

So I guess what I'm asking is for a litter direction and advise. All is appreciated.
Thank you very much,

HI there,

first time being in a forum as the support from LaCie is rather bad.

Here some info on the equipment:
Operating System & Version: VISTA

I plugged the hard drive into the laptop to add data. First it was recognised and than all of a sudden it just showed the external hard drive without name (before it always showed in the recognised devices the name of the hard drive LaCie). Now it asks me to format the drive but as I don't want to loos all the data which are on the device I am hoping that you can tell me what the problem is and how to solve it.
(I tried it with a different computer but the same problem).

[Answer from support: The drive should not be reformatted to afile system other than FAT32. If the drive is formattedin a non-FAT32 format (such as NTFS or HFS+), files will NOT appear on your television screen.]

Also you might like to know that I can use the hard drive with an HDMI cable connected to my TV. SO I can actually still watch my movies and listen to the music on it.

1. Pc recognises the drive but I cannot access it (can't add or deleat files on the hard drive)
2. Cables are working (exchanged cables to check if that might be the problem)
3. Connected the hard drive to a different computer - same problem
4. Hard drive works fine when I connect it to a TV to watch movies or listen to music

As I am not a specialist I need a step by step help to recover my files before I reformat the drive.

I own two identical laptops. Both started having the same problem two days ago. Model is CQ61-410US Notebook from Compaq. Running Windows 7 Home Premium. 64-bit operating system.
I started getting a cyclic redundancy check error (error_crc error per MS Windows). The error occurs when I attempt to syncronize either of my two laptops with the ACT software from Sage loaded on the remote server. I have been successfully syncing these laptops for the two years in the same fashion. Only today have I begun having this problem. And I have two other computers that are syncing without a problem. I did a restore back to yesterday morning before a Windows critical update was installed. That did not help. Because it is a problem with only these two laptops, my suspision is that it has something to do with the laptops and some kind of an update that has affected them. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

A:cyclic data redundancy error (drive C - os ) may have concluded incorrectly, it's hard to say.My experience with these types of errors...usually involves an optical drive, not a hard drive. If I received this error on a hard drive, the first thing I would do is run a check of the hard drive. Initially, I would try running chkdsk /r from the Recovery Console of my Microsoft XP install CD. If that failed, I would download a hard drive diagnostic utility from the website of the hard drive manufacturer and run it, following directions provided.The first thing I would suggest...move any data on that drive which you another storage device. This should be done before attempting any checks of the hard drive in question.Louis

Are you backing up your files to your C: drive? or another hard drive.

Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > then Right click on the Command Prompt, then select Run As Administrator.

In the Command Prompt window type chkdsk /r you will need to restart your computer for chkdsk to start.

If your backups are on a different hard drive then run the Elevated Command Prompt as stated above. chkdsk X: /r ( With X being the drive letter of your second hard drive)

sounds like your pst file is corrupt.

Follow the steps below (take your time) to help re-create your pst file.

The instructions can be found here also (

Re-create Your Personal Folder File
1. Quit Outlook, and then start Windows Explorer.
2. Make a backup copy of your personal folder file (Outlook.pst).

Outlook.pst is usually located in the following folder:
Microsoft Windows XP, Microsoft Window 2000, and Microsoft Windows NT 4.0:
drive:\Documents and Settings\UserID\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook
Microsoft Windows 98 Second Edition (SE) and Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition (Me):
drive:\Program Files\Common Files\System\Mapi\LocaleID
Drive is the drive letter of your boot drive, UserID is your user I.D., and LocaleID is the locale identifier (LCID) for your installation of Microsoft Office. For example, the LCID for English (United States) is 1033.
3. Rename Outlook.pst as "OLD.pst". To do so, follow these steps: a. Click Outlook.pst.
b. On the File menu, click Rename.
c. Type OLD.pst, and then press ENTER.

Hi rapchik...

are you transferring files between these two hard drives or just moving them about in one or the other?

This is usually a sign of some bad sectors on the hard drive. It may be an idea to run chkdsk on them:

- Click Start -> Run -> type:
- Click OK
- At the flashing cursor type:
chkdsk /r /f c:
- Press Enter then Y then Enter then Y to confirm again
- Now reboot and let it scan...may take 10 minutes or so

If you're having the problem on a different partition, all you need to do is change the c for another drive letter i.e chkdsk /r /f d:

Hope that helps.

p.s - It may also be an idea to think about backing up any vital data just incase your hard drive is having issues....also, you could download the manafacturer's hard drive utility tool which you can use to run some checks on the drive.

A:Error copying file or folder; cannot copy img the directory or file cannot be created

This has caught me more than once.

The problem is a limitation on the number of files and folders allowed in the root folder of a FAT16 file system (as for a memory card) of 512. (Note, this number is reduced much further if longer file names than 8 characters are used, as most people will want to).

When transferring the files onto the card, new files will be rejected when you hit this limit.

So keep your files in separate folders, so they are not all in the root folder.

For files and folders in root it might be worth keeping your filenames under 8 characters in length so you can use the full 512 files on root folder.

The hard drive has a bad sector under that folder?

Test the hard drive with the manufacturer-provided utililty to confirm.

The bad sectors can be marked unusable with the chkdsk utility to make Windows work around the bad areas, but you should consider repacing that drive.

A:Need Help -- Data error: clinc redundancy check

Did you mean "Cyclic Redundancy Check"? This is also expressed as CRC. CRC is a way for computers to verify that the data it is getting is not corrupt or tampered with. When a byte (series of 8 bits) is transmitted, it is often sent with a CRC bit tacked to the end. Based on a computation of the 1's and 0's that form the byte, the CRC bit will be a 1 or a 0. If, on the receive side, after it receives the byte with the CRC bit, it runs the same computation on the 8 bits. It then checks the CRC bit and if it does not match, you get a CRC or Cyclic Redundancy Check Error.

Hope this helps.

I did some extensive reading on this subject and there are many reasons that could cause this. Ill try to sum them up and make some suggestions.

The disc could be dirty, scratched or have fingerprints. Take a very close look - and if needed clean it according to instructions how to clean disks (google if you are unsure).

The disc was dirty, scratched or had a fingerprint on it and when you burned the data it messed up the write process. I dont know if you had the DVD verfied after to make sure it was ok. So it could be this or it was a "bad burn" (bad media). Shouldnt be the case if you had the DVD checked after the burn though.

Sometimes for odd reasons a drive just doesnt want to read a certain disk. Try to read the information on another PC.

My problem was that i formatted the D:\ partition to NTFS.
I reformatted both drives to FAT32 copied and then installed 98SE to/from C:\options\cabs and when the XP option of creating NTFS partitions became available DID NOT CHOOSE FORMAT TO NTFS. Now I can do it from administrative tools if i have/want to. Problem solved. Not HARDWARE/SOFTWARE related, file system related.

I don't know whether I am posting in the correct area, but forgive me if I'm not.

I have recently attempted to retrieve some files from zipped archives stored on CD's. After approximately 50% of the zip files on each disc have extracted, I am coming up against CDC errors. The discs involved were all produced at the same time, using the same software, etc.

I am wondering if the data in the remaining files is lost, or if someone knows of a way in which I can get around this error and retrieve at least some of the data.

Any help would be appreciated, even if it is just to tell me that the data is lost and the discs need to be dumped.

A:Cyclic Redundancy Check

The CRC error basically says that the file has some corruption and does not match the checksum that it should. The actual location and extent of the corruption cannot be determined.

The problem is that there is no redundant data in the zipped archive to allow the error to be corrected, as the zipping process removes such extra bulk to make the file smaller.

It sounds like a marginally readable media with that many files failing, you were probably lucky to get any back.

But as the readability is based on the "reflectivity" of the dye used in the CD, and the lasers between different drives also are not uniform, its entirely possible that the CD could be read OK on another computer or two and I would be trying that before giving up.

As a RW-CD starts to fill up I get an error message of Cyclic Redundancy Check. What I an doing is adding data to the CD on a daily basis but the CD is nowhere near full. This is information that I really need. This happens quite often. I'm using MAXELL CDs. Are there better ones? Are is it my CD burner? Thanks for any help you can give!

I need to jump on this band wagon. My apologies if this has already been covered but I am in need of HELP.​
I have a WD 2tb hard drive that fails to show up in MY COMPUTER but in Disk management it shows as DISK 1 Unknown - Not initialised. I have tried to initialise but comes up with the reply DATA ERROR - CYCLIC REDUNDANCY CHECK.

I have removed the hard drive from the WD casing and have now placed it in a docking station (to take away any fault with the WD casing). I have also tried a different number of cables and different USB ports on 3 diff computers all running off Vista.

When I plug the hard drive in and switch it on, it starts up as normal (if you place your hand on it you can feel it working but no loud sounds to say the hard drive is corrupt.)

I have tried chkdsk but I dont know what letter the drive is so I can't go any further as it justs checks the C drive. I am not completely savvy with computers but I know a little so ALL HELP IS APPRECIATED!!

I have got about 70-80 gb of photos and video footage of my family that I had stored on this hard drive which I haven't backed up - ok I know school boy error but I was in the middle of putting all my files together that I deleted the back up!!!!

You are screwed, drive is toast. Sorry.

You can try the 'freezer trick' if you are really desperate. Put that drive in the freezer for long enough to get everything super cold. Then take it out and hook it up immediately, you might get lucky and have a few minutes where it will work. I have never had this work, but I have read about it working.... although that was probably 10 years ago.

First thought is a corrupted file.

If these files have been downloaded via a torrent or other P2P application/service then we cannot help further on this site.

Not sure if this is the correct forum or not, but maybe someone can give me an answer. I have 3 extra drives, 1 internal 250G slave, and 2 external 500G each. I get a lot of movies and TV shows for viewing on my big TV. I've downloaded these movies to my 250G slave drive, and it has worked well for 15 months now. But recently I began to get the "Cyclic Redundancy Check", Can't copy this file. Some of my files will copy, but slower than normal. But I'm puzzled about the ones that won't copy.
If someone has a suggestion about a fix, I'd greatly appreciate it.


A:Cyclic Redundancy Check

You could try and run a hard drive test software on the faulty drive. CRC errors refer to either a physical issue with the drive, or highly corrupted files. Sounds more hardware related.

Test out the drive with the appropriate software. What brand drive is it?

I transfered a file from my friends computer to my laptop, and now, I'm trying to transfer it onto my server. There was a series of 6 files that he transfered to me, but the problem is only 5 of the .rar files get transfered onto my network! When it gets to the last file, says, "ERROR: Cyclic Redundancy Check" and it stops. Is there a way to overcome this or will I have to go back to his house and redo this whole process???

By the way, I WOULD get him to burn it onto a DVD but he doesn't have, nor does he want to get a bloody DVD Burner! And the files are like 10 megs too big for a CD so I had to go to his house with my laptop and a straight through ethernet cable and transfer it directly!

Try a new DVD - a CRC error means the data is corrupted on the DVD - meaning either it is scratched or it is truly corrupted.

I'm trying to back up some stuff to an external hard drive. And there are errors in movies that I have ripped (because I either forget to put them back in the case or they get lost) some movies and whenever I try to move the video file (ripped int a AUDI0_TS file and a VIDEO_TS file) I have an error box where the title of the window in the blue bar says "Error Copying File or Folder" and in the window (the gray part) it says "Cannot copy VTS_01_2" Data error (cyclic redundancy check).". And then I click the "OK" button and it stops the transfer. The VTS_01_2 is sometimes replaced with whatever file that cannot be transferred or that is causing the problem. I used DVDShrink and DVD43 to back them up. I am running Windows XP sp3 and transferring them onto a 300 GB hard drive. Can anyone help me please? Thank you.

A:Cyclic Redundancy Check

CRC errors mean the data actually seen is not faithfully transferred.

1- the file is actually corrupted
2- the media has errors
3- the software reading/writing the CDROM is overrunning (ie going too fast; slow it down).

I had bought the game Crysis a few months ago, and played its campaign to the end. Recently, I wanted to play the game's multiplayer, but when I started the setup, it kept giving me an error "can't read from file sounds.pak", and so I tried copying all files of the CD to the hard drive, and sure enough, one file gave an error 'Error copying file Cyclic Redundancy Check.' Since I don't want to buy the game again, and the warranty has long since expired, is there anything I can do? All other files from the CD-ROM were copied without a problem.

give the CD a good clean

have a really good look at the CD - I have found a good clean often resolves these type of issues

I am getting this error and I know what it is and why it is doing it for the most part though the disk I am trying to copy isn't that badly scratched.
Now I remember a few years ago a friend told me a way to get it so the drive or dvdshrink wouldn't do this anymore but for the life of me I have forgotten.

Any help is always appreciated.

Some burners read scratched discs better than others. One trick that has worked for me is to use window/glass cleaner and a green scouring pad. Wipe the scratched disc in a radial motion using the pad, all the way around the disc. Wash off the cleaner and dry the disc. Try reading it once more
