Windows 7: File XFR Between DualBooting Causing CHKDSK

28 Nov 2010   #11

Win 10 Pro 64x


TLER is a correction thing for HDD's in WD anyway and some disable it to squeeze a little more speed. I may have made the tweak. It has to do with the amount of seconds the drives give each other to correct them selves in RAID. I will be enabling it if indeed I did tweak it.
I have not messed with the settings you asked me about.
My OP explains when I xfr files between OS HDD's and restart I got CHKDSK.
  • What I do is in Vista I open an explorer window to the My Documents folder.
  • Then another explorer window showing the HDD Win7 is on with the My Documents folder open there.
  • Then I drag and drop (copy) files from the vista HDD My Documents to the Win 7 My documents folder.
  • Then when I boot to Win7 it does a CHKDSK on the Vista Raid set and the files I copied are in the list of what it's doing. It moves fast but I managed to see it say "Deleting" reference I think?
  • Then I boot back to Vista and it repeats.
Then its all good until I do it again. If I do not move files it does not CHKDSK when booting to and fro. The files are Office 2007 .xlsm files.
I decided to stop doing it.
I am planning to format the Vista RAID set and move Win 7 into it. The Win 7 has won me over and I'll be ditching the vista.
Is there a way to check the HDD's in a RAID set for errors? WD's Lifeguard will not do it. If not I'll just format and make them stand alone and check them out before moving it al over with Acronis.

Thanks Again

The RAID set should be self-testing (my RAID controller listed it in the RAID BIOS).
This is separate from the HDD diags. You should be able to run the Seagate Seatools on most RAID controllers - but that's 100% sure. Also, in some BIOS's you'll have to disable AHCI and set the drives as something else (usually IDE) to get the tests to work.

Worst case is that you have to use the Windows tests on the HDD's - or slave the HDD's to another system and test them there. All of this difficulty is the reason that I gave up RAID.

Good luck!

Thanks, I'll get it eventually. I do know Intel's Matrix Storage Manager seems to look them over pretty good. But I will do some other tests to be sure before changing the set to run Win7. I'm using the MoBo's Intel RAID controller.

I Run RAID1 on my OS so I can keep rolling if one dies and avoid a time sensitive recovery. As a photographer/investigator I need to avoid the downtime if I can. It proved good once when a WD640GB failed and she rolled along until I got the RMA completed. I slapped her in and she rebuilt. I also run backups to another external eSATA RAID1 set.
