Can't "Scandisk" HDD
12G drive on 2nd controller, partitioned 10G and .4G, periodically won't allow a Scandisk under W98Se as well as WinME. The error message speaks to a disk utility locking the drive up or that the drive hasn't been formatted yet, and "Properties" shows full usage in. A DOS Scandisk works OK. If I move the data off the disk and re-format, it "works" fine ie. properties shows proper pie graph usage and Scandisk does its job w. the data transfered back. This has happened to 2 new drives and I only get 3-4 days of usage until the problem repeats itself. Various HDD company support desks always blame Windows and speak 'bout Scandisk patches etc., but I have never found any Knowledgebase articles that detail this problem. As I Scandisk daily, this is bugging me. Happened to anyone else???
