Preferred Solution: disk volume error problem

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hey, I tried method two to format in fat32, but I get: virtual disk service error: the volume size is too big. I need 127GB of space for my PS3 that needs FAT32.

Any help is appreciated.

A:Virtual disk service error: the volume size is too big

I've never heard of virtual disk service giving messages about a partition being too big. There are limits for FAT32 partitions (8 terabytes by the way) but in FAT32 format there are file size limits, e.g. Programs Files can't be over 4gb (not in your case). Have you tried any other different methods of formatting the drive as FAT32?

Hello neelam64,
I can't read the language in the screen print, but i think it says all your partitions are "Dynamic" type.

You should get your partitions setup so they are NOT DYNAMIC, but you will LOSE ALL CURRENT DATA and need to re-install!

Okkk. So I've searched pretty much everywhere and I can't figure out what to do if my laptop doesn't recognize my hard drive. I put the Vista disk in and the only thing I'm able to use is the command prompt because none of the others work since it doesn't recognize hard disk. When i try to do chkdsk/r it says
''the type of the file system is NTFS.
cannot lock current drive.
Windows cannot run disk checking on this volume because it is write protected.''
Is there any way to get past this?
Or some way to get my computer to recognize the drivers?

I received a "unmountable boot volume" error on our laptop.
We have a Dell Vostro laptop with Windows XP

When I was trying to fix the boot error, I changed the BIOS Settings to load from CD first.
Then I loaded the Windows XP CD and attempted to run the Recovery, however, I received a message saying "Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed..."

What should I do next to try to fix this issue?
We hope the hard drive is not dead because we will have a lost quite a bit of information. I will appreciate any help you can provide. Thank you.
 

A:Did not find any hard disk drives while trying to fix unmountable boot volume error

The hard drive is the cause of the error. If you can't afford to lose the information, remove the hard drive and put it aside. Install a new drive and re-install the version of Windows you were using... Information on the bad drive might be recoverable by placing it into an external USB enclosure and accessing the files that way

Hi, I've tried everything with this laptop to no avail, and though maybe someone here might know how to fix my problem.

Well, it started yesterday when I booted up and got the "Windows did not start successfully" message. No matter what option I picked (safe mode, start Windows normally etc.), it would go to the Windows logo and begin to load, and then quickly flash the BSOD and restart again, returning to the "Windows did not start successfully" message.

I then disabled automatic restart on system failure and this time the BSOD stayed on screen and told me that I had an "UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME" error. I looked around on the internet, and from what I read I decided to run Chkdsk from the Recovery Console.

This is where I am stuck. I have two "Recovery CD-ROMs" instead of the Windows XP CD, because the laptop came with Windows XP preloaded, and I figured that to get to the Recovery Console I should insert one and boot the laptop. I tried both, and nothing happened (it just loaded the "Windows did not start successfully" message again).

I then loaded the CD directly by hitting Esc on start up, but the only options that came up were 1. MS-DOSwith CD-ROM support, 2. Recover Windows XP to first partition only, 3. Recover Windows XP to entire HD, and 4. Recover Windows XP to entire HD with 2 partitions.

A:[SOLVED] Unmountable boot volume error, cannot load Windows XP disk

Hello Clare

You will have to borrow a proper (full) XP installation CD from someone.
Then
Configure your PC to boot from CD if it isn't already set up that way. You may need to enter the BIOS to configure the PC to boot from the CD.
Set the boot order to
floppy (if present)
CD/DVDROM
Hard disk
SAVE and EXIT

Start your PC with the XP Setup CD in the drive. When you see the "Press any key to boot from CD..." prompt, do so and let the CD-based boot process begin.

When the Recovery Console option is offered (Press R to start the Recovery Console), do so. You may be asked which Windows installation to enter, in which case type the number of the Windows installation you wish to work on (usually 1).

When prompted, enter the Administrator's password for that Windows installation. If you did not set a password just press ENTER

At the command prompt, type
chkdsk /r
enter

Type
Exit
Enter

I was having trouble with my computer on Friday, it would freeze a few minutes after start up. All programs would be "not responding". I would restart it and the same thing would happen.

I ran Rkill in case there was anything malicious running and nothing was found. I ran Malwarebytes as well and nothing was found. I used combo fix to restore my system to a previous date and the problem persisted.

The system would freeze even at the log in screen if I waited more the a few minutes to log on. Time is some sort of factor.

A few other tests that are available (or automatically performed themselves before start up) mentioned NTFS but I did not get a chance to write it down.

A:System volume on disk is corrupt? (disk metadata test)

Either windows Vista needs re-installing, a Factory Recovery is required, or the hard drive is starting to fail and therefore needs replacing with a new one.

You can test the hard drive with the drive manufacturer's diagnostic software. You will need to download the DOS version which runs from a bootable CD. The download contains an ISO file for creating the CD. The links are here: Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities (Storage) - TACKtech Corp.

I have Windows Server 2012 R2 and it is my file server and it auto syncs user's file every minute. I have 3 disks. The primary partition (Disk 0) and two others (Disk 1 & Disk 2). My question does not include the primary
partition.


I shrunk Disk 2 so that I had unallocated space. I then extended Disk 1 using the unallocated space from Disk 2 creating spanned volume on Disk 1 (extended volume on Disk 2). It did not do what I wanted so I want to 'undo' it. Can
I just delete the spanned volume on Disk 2 (space that added to Disk 1)? Or more accurately if I'm going to delete the spanned volume on Disk 2, will it affect my users' files?

Hi,

I have received my laptop with a 250GB HDD partitioned into two primary partitions (well there is actually four with only 512MB called NVCACHE and another of 1GB as EISA Configuration). One of the partitions is a system, boot, page file ... partition containing the OS (Win Vista Home Premium and contains about 35GB space) and programs. The other is a partition for all the data (~198GB). I am now starting to run low on disk space on the OS partition (<3GB) and wanted to add some more space. I tried to use Disk Management but this did not work because there is no adjacent unallocated space on the same disk next to the OS partition. There is only space at the end of the data disk partition, which I cannot move to the OS partition (at least I do not know how).

Is there a way to increase the disk space for the OS partition? Both partitions have following set out:

Layout: Simple
Type: Basic
File System: NTFS (except for the small NVCAHE which is FAT32 and the EISA does not have any File system)
Status: Healthy

Would appreciate any help I can get on this folks.

The problem started a couple of days ago out of the blue.

Whenever I run a game (and this happened for a variety of games including Brothers in Arms, Prince of Persia, Winning Eleven 7 and 8, etc.), the game runs fine for like 10 or 15 mins, and then locks up. First the sounds keeps going on but the picture freezes, then the only sound that starts coming out of the speakers is a sort of static sputtering sound.
Anyway I'd have to restart manually, and when I checked the Event log, there were several errors in a row, around 15 of them, and "disk" was listed as the source, with the following message:

Event ID: 15
The device, \Device\Harddisk0\D, is not ready for access yet.

Naturally I thought it meant I had to get a new hard drive. Problem is, this problem ONLY happens when I'm playing games. I tried reverting to older video card drivers and that didn't work.
Another thing is, I read somewhere that a guy with a similar problem (except that his problem was that the freezing occurred when he started Windows), solved it by disabling RAID controllers in the device manager that he accidentally installed even though he didn't have a RAID array. So I tried disabling the RAID Promise controller, even though it never did cause any trouble before. After disabling it, the error recurred, but in Event viewer, there were no more logs regarding disk errors. Which makes me think the RAID controller has some... Read more

My friend took his computer to Best Buy who ran the restore on it with his main files on a second drive. The drive is now ganked, but I'm working to recover the files if possible.

In Disk Management (XP Pro), I can see that there's a 37GB volume with 20Gb free (looks like his missing files). There's a second volume on the disk that's only 47 MB and it's Active (so I can access it, but there's nothing to speak of there).

The point is that if I click on the 37Gb volume, I can't seem to do anything with it. The only menu option available when I right click it is "Help". If I click the disk itself, I have the option to convert to a dynamic disk, but I don't want to do that without knowing what will happen to the data on there.

When I dig through the properties, I can see data on the 47MB disk, but not the 37 GB. Does anyone know what to do with this!!!?

A:Disk read error problem !!!!

Run Check Disk and see if that solves the problem.
Either:
1) Right click the disk in 'Computer', --> properties --> tools tab --> 'Check for errors'.
2) Open command prompt and type CHKDSK C: /F (for drive C)

This will require a restart as it is your system drive.

More drastic option, backup you data, format drive and reinstall vista. (why do you have two installations??). This is more likely to work if the above doesn't.

It may have occured because you hard reset your computer. This can cause file system instability.

It is also a strong sign that your hard drive may be failing. If you haven't already, make sure you have a backup of all your data. Which leaves another option: replace HDD.

Have you faced this problem before with the same hard drive (different installation), if so I would definitely replace you hard drive.

Hope this helps.

After a forced shut down, I want to run an error check on my primary disk. I went to My Computer, clicked on properties of this disk, clicked on Tools and Error Checking. (I've done this successfully before). When I restart the computer, the Error Checking is supposed to be performed. Instead, I get a message saying, "Cannot open the volume for direct access." and Error Checking is not performed. How can I release this volume so it can be checked in the future? I did successfully run Chkdsk from the Recovery Console without the the block.

Hi. First off.. Thanx in advance for helping me out with this. I know that you guys are really busy. So I appreciate all the help u can give me.

I've done a search of the forums & lots of pple have had the same problem I'm having with getting the error message when my computer boots up about the Windows- no disk There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive. Cancel Try again Continue. I did what one of u suggested and downloaded HJT and ran the program. I saved the log file & will copy it here for you.

I normally fix my own probs with Adware/malware/viruses & all that. But, for some reason I just can't seem to get this one. It's really driving me crazy... LoL. Thanx again for taking the time to read this & helping me out. Also I started my comp in safe mode & did not get the windows no disk error. If that helps...

Whilst on the Net a few days ago the computer froze,
then said IE (or MS) had experienced an error, then the computer shut down & restarted & asked if I wanted to send an error report & I closed the box.
Next time I started the computer it wanted to do a 'checkdisk' so I let it, but it only did the first scan of 3 & froze, so I had to reboot, ..... it does this each time I start now unless I cancel checkdisk.

The message that now pops up is:
"The file or dir. 'C:\4Mft is corrupt & unreadable' - run Chkdsk"
I wonder if someone could advise me on what to do find & fix the problem with the disk (or chkdsk),
Thanks, Yvonne

Do anyone know where the removable disk volume label saved? on the removable disk or local disk? sometimes my removable disk connntected to other PCs, the volume label can be show also, that means that the volume label saved on the removable disk, is it? which file? thank you.

A:Where the removable disk volume label?

The volume label is written to the device/drive. I don't think it's stored in a file that you can easily edit though. I believe its stored in the master boot record and i wouldn't go messing around in there.

I ran check disk today, and when it was finished, it says the volume is clean. What does this mean? I've never seen this screen before when I run check disk. The same "volume is clean" message appeared once before, but I didn't tell check disk to run. I assumed it had to do with the dual boot I had(Linux/Windows). Is this a bad thing for my hard drive?

A:Check Disk Says Volume is Clean

It's an indicator that all is well (no errors on the disk) but it's weird that you're seeing it for the first time, if you didn't do anything different.

Maybe the effect of one of those automatic windows "fixes" ?

Hye all!

I ran into this little annoying problem with Windows Vista. I am using Windows Vista 64-bit with Service Pack 2. I have also recently started using Acronis True Image Home 2011. Currently I am trying out the feature that lets me mount a disk drive or disk volume image and use it as if it is a regular physical disk drive.

I have a volume image backup I made earlier. It's named 'Windows system volume C backup.tib'. As the name suggests, this is a full backup of my system volume C.

But if I mount it and assign some drive letter to it, and then try to browse it, I get a prompt from Windows Vista, telling me that I don't have permission or something like that.

You currently don't have permission rights to use this folder.

Click on Continue to access this folder.Click to expand...

That's loosely translated from Swedish, but you get the idea.

If I click on Continue it allows me to view the contents of the folder anyway. So why is it telling me this anyway?

I have well over 5000 folders in my users folder. I won't browse through them all, but I would really appreciate if I could get rid of these prompts. I was thinking, maybe I need to take ownership of that mounted disk volume? Any other ideas?

How do you actually take ownership of a disk volume or a disk drive? I have done this once or twice in the past, when I needed to. But I don't seem to remember how I did it. I think I had a context menu option of some sort so I would... Read more

A:How to take ownership of a mounted disk volume?

Right click on the folder, choose Properties, Security tab, Advanced button, Owner tab, Edit button.

I am having some problem with Vista, So i planned to install it again in few days. But as i friends said that Windows 7 don't support more than 3 Volumes/Hard Disk Partition. Now my problem is that, I have 5 Partitions(I used Disk Management to make new partitions) C: D: E: F: G:(100 GB each) and H: DvD Drive. Now i want to know if can enable those those partitions again after installation (F and G) without loosing the contents/data ?

Can't Stop myself from using these emo (They look nice than yahoo got) ..
Thank you!

A:Volume/Hard Disk Partiton

rahuldev345:
My system has 3 internal drives, 1 external drive; these are divided into 13 partitions; I'm also using a 1GB RAMDrive.
That's a total of 14 "drives" all running very nicely under Windows 7 Home Premium.
I stick a thumb-drive in there once in a while and sometimes an old ZIPdrive, too.
Never had a problem from Windows 7.

Be sure to back up all your Drives before adding/changing/deleting partitions.
There is a free partition manager called Partition Wizard that I use all the time with very good results.
It's much more flexible than Windows' Disk Management tool.
You might want to check it out.

Hi There,

NOw if i am trying to install window then there is no drive is shown and give "no drive shown.please choose a mass storage driver for drive. " and in repairing it shows "volume information corrupted.
Please help........
 

A:Solved: disk volume corrupted

You will probably need to wipe the partitions from the drive before you can reinstall. Use WUBI for Ubuntu and then you won't need to change real partitions.

Parted Magic disk partitoning tool (Bootable CD image)
If you prefer a bootable USB key, download and run Linux Live USB Creator. Choose the Parted Magic distro, and it will download it and automatically create a bootable USB key.

This CD (or key) contains many useful tools. You can partition, recover files, recover lost partitions, make disk images (by several different methods), transfer files between media, scan for viruses (It can serve as an Alternative Trusted Platform for search and elimination of rootkits and bootkits), examine and benchmark hardware, access the internet, and much more.
