Windows 7: Clone failed

Clone failed

Excuse my ignorance, but it's been many year since I've wanted to clone a drive. I have just installed a WD20EARX (J:/), but after only a couple of seconds, I get the following Error message: Failed to prepare operations. Error code: 10 'File system error is found' with extended code: 458,774 'Block bitmap corrupted'" module="10" time="1318002352"

I've checked out the FAQs and that's not helped.

I have also tried using Macrium, but get the message: Clone failed - - VerifyFileSystem failed.

I have checked through Device Manager and all appears to be OK in there. Ithe new drive is showing up in there OK, but when I check up in Start > Computer, it's not showing up in there.

Anyone any idea what it all means and simple step-by-step instruction of how to get around it.

I am using Windows 7 and the new drive, 2TB, is formatted to NTFS

I assume that you are attempting to clone to, not from, the new drive.

Therefore the filesystem problem would be at the source, which I assume to be your Windows drive or C: partition.

I would suggest opening a DOS command window and entering the following command:
Quote:
chkdsk /f /v c:
You should then be told that the drive cannot be locked, and if you'd like to run the check at the next reboot. Answer yes, then restart your PC. chkdsk will run shortly after the PC starts booting into Windows and then reboot again to go back to Windows.

This should fix most, if not all filesystem errors. After that you can try cloning again - also, in Macrium you can disable verifying the filesystem before starting the backup process.

Tried both of these suggestions, but still getting the same error messages.
