I have numerous cases of:
The device, \Device\Harddisk1\DR1, has a bad block. - Spanning almost 90 minutes. I think maybe from when I was attempting to check and fix any errors on the drive.
I also found quite a few: Crash dump initialization failed! - dotted about the place
As well as the occassional:
The file system structure on the disk is corrupt and unusable. Please run the chkdsk utility on the volume Media-BensPC.
The default transaction resource manager on volume Media-BensPC encountered a non-retryable error and could not start. The data contains the error code.
detected a controller error on \Device\Harddisk2\DR2.
