Windows 7: "Something" blocks processes while writing to disk

Hello Xbluerobot, I first thought of (and was looking for) some system software failure, but I'm now working on checking the disk first (as you read above).
If it's ok, I'm going for a reinstall, so to upgrade to x64, a thing I should have done time ago.

I also found this in the logs: does anybody know what could be?

Code:

I managed to find this thread on the error:

Windows Error Report Entries - WindowsWcpOtherFailure3

WindowsWcpOtherFailure3: and the error reports it creates is - Microsoft Community

It seems from I understand, that some important files have become corrupt, a clean installation may be the best solution for this.

Yes, that's what I'm leaning toward, but I first need to check if this corruption came from hd failure.

That's a good step to take, here's a list of Hard Drive Diagnostic Procedure.

I would suggest running Seagate Tools for Windows and one of your hard-drive manufacturer's tests.

My HD is from Hitachi: I downloaded their tool, but nothing shows in the list; the seagate tool list the HD, but I'm not sure what test to run.

In the meanwhile I'm testing it with HDDScan 3.3

Did you do the surface test too pdario as I suggested? Plus mate if you are going to upgrade to a 64bit OS then you will need to get that. Myself I would save what data I could and do a complete clean install.

You can try that by downloading the ISO and trying it while getting the OEM and then activate it later with the code - you don't need to reinstall from the disk itself - I have just done this myself on a fix

personally I like the disk way better and if you have the data saved then you will not get the bloatware from Acer.

I managed to get an OK from a chkdsk /r run from a recovery command line started from a fresh downloaded Win 7 x64 SP1 ISO just downloaded for the occasion.

My HD seems good, I have the DVD ready for reinstall and the only doubt I still have is whether format the partition or not; I would prefer to keep the data on it and install the new Windows there, then rearranging data to their correct position.
Scratching the partition would be way longer, as I have to move data back and forth my NAS through my 100Mbit switch. Since I understand leaving the partition as it is would not harm the clean install, I'll take that way.
Plus I suspect my "upgrade" Win7 license would complain if it does not find an old Win installation.

Might I make a suggestion pdario mate I would be very inclined to get a new hard drive an OEM and clean install the 64bit ISO to it using the OEM activation code for the ISO install when you get it.

The old drive you can hook up with a gadget via a USB cable and copy across any data you need or want form thta.

It does save all that bloatware mate but that is just what I would be doing as I did with both my Toshibas.

The gadget looks like this one in Amazon they are cheap and you just plug in the old drive to the adaptor the USB lead to your machine and the power supply to the gadget Amazon.com: USB 2.0 to 2.5" 3.5" SATA/IDE Hard Drive HDD CD-Rom 3.5/2.5 Converter Adapter Cable + AC Power Adapter: Computers & Accessories always handy to ahe around but the choice is yours.

ICit2lol, I don't even need that adapter: my notebook has to hd bays, so I can simply move my current hd to the second one and put a new one in the first, maybe even a SSD!
But there are issues:
  • I've been told that recent disks may not work on my controller (SATA3 disks on SATA controller)
  • The original HD has a couple of special partition; apart from the recovery one (that I don't think I will ever user, as it contains the original Vista 32bit), it has a handy "media player" partition that can be booted and used to play media without starting Win7
  • I'm not sure I want to spend money for this old machine: it is 4 years old now, it could be less worth than the new disk! A faster router/switch for my LAN has higher priority now!
Thanks a lot for your suggestions, anyway.
