Wrong disk volume

Q: Wrong disk volume

When I turn my computer on, on the boot when it checks the hd size it reads it as 130gb when it is only 30gb. This prevents windows from loading. I can access CMOS and fix the error but it will happen next time I boot up. Heard of this?

Preferred Solution: Wrong disk volume

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.)

Recently, when I plug in my iPod and try to disconnect it in iTunes a svchost.exe no disk error pops up. Sometimes after I click Cancel, a svchost.exe wrong volume error follows. I can't disconnect it by pulling out the cable because my iPod is still 'loading' things, and I don't want to damage it. So I disconnect it with Safely Remove Hardware.

I've tried resetting my iPod and reinstalling iTunes. Nothing worked for this, and frankly this is very frustrating.

Any help would be appreciated.

I've an external drive that has two partitions. I wanted to merge them and Clicked Delete Volume on Windows 7 Disk Management......but on the wrong partition.

There's no undo feature :-(

I've seen this but understand it only works on Windows 2000 and XP. How To Recover an Accidentally Deleted NTFS or FAT32 Dynamic Volume

I've also seen this Free Partition Recovery Wizard - recover deleted, lost partitions with EaseUS Partition Master.

I havn't done anything to the drive and don't want to do the wrong thing in case I start loosing data.

Has anyone used "EaseUS Partition Master" once it's restored the partitions are all the files intact? Or do I then need to use a file undeleter? I had about 91GB of data on the partition and don't have another drive at the moment with that much free?

Are there other software downloads that can help me?

Many Thanks

A:Clicked Delete Volume on wrong partition in Disk Management

I took a gamble.....

The key here was that I did not do anything with Windows or the drive, once I deleted the Volume.

Recover Deleted Partitions. Undelete Partition. Unerase Partition. Restore Partition - EaseUS Partition Recovery and Partition Table Doctor was perfect.

EaseUS Partition Recovery for free restored the partition and this included all files on the partition so no need for an undelete too.

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.

Start up repair "disk metadata test said the root cause was 'Volume on disk corrupt' Repair action chkdsk Error code OxO.

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.

NOW when I turd on the computer that scrolling windows progress bar goes by a few times before I get a completely black screen on which I can still move my cursor.

Please Help.

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

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?

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

I recently had to reinstall a windows 7 recovery disk and recovery driver disks that were sent to me from Lenovo support saying my warranty was good until 2015 sometime. Any way little did I know that I was in the think pad department and I have an idea pad Y570 0862 any way I explained to them in detail what my system was and they still sent me the recovery disk for the wrong machine. so I did the install not knowing it was for a think pad and now realize that there are things missing plus it is supposed to be win 7 64gb and the baseband drivers are not installed and I can't get them installed. well they won't transfer the warranty from one department to the other and say that I cannot get an extended warranty through the right department because it shows there that it is expired any way I have installed the drivers that are ment for my system to the best of my ability but I'm sure there are drivers installed for the wrong system and if I run test every thing says it is OK but I'm not sure I trust that plus I have a 32gb win 7 installed when I should have 64gb and I cannot find my blue ray info in device manager it just appears that I'm stuck unless I fork out more money for there mistake and I just don't know where to go from here or what to do!

Anyways... I seem whenever I boot up my comp. a message constantly occurs:

a box appears and on top it says "CorelOMonitor.exe - Not Found", and below that, inside the box it states:

The Wrong Volume Is In The Drive.Please insert Disk into drive Z.

Thinking it was Corel Snapfire. I had inserted Corel Snapfire installation cd it said a similar statement, but at least it was on the same track as being a similar issue.

Because my iPod is connected via my ubs port, it always pops up whenever my iPod is connected.

Even though this is small issue, it can get very annoying as it is constant.

I had done a full scan using AVG 7.5, and had solved some issues, but not this.

I had tried changing the partition using "Diskmgmt.msc" in my RUN program on the start menu, and still no avail. also trying this going under an admin user.

Hopefully this is some what understandable. I mean green on these sorts of issues, and would really would like some support.

thanks, any more info, just ask.

I am in a position at work in which people often bring CDs to me to view contents. After spending a few minutes viewing the contents I eject the CD and give it back to its owner. In my haste, I often eject it too soon after closing the files/applications on the cd. I then get a "Windows - Wrong Volume" error as the computer is obviously looking for the CD I ejected. The only way I have figured out to get rid of this error is to restart my computer. This delays my workflow significantly. Is there a way to get rid of this error and "re-set" the cd drive to accept a new cd without having to restart the computer?


A:Wrong Volume error


When this error appears, try right clicking the taskbar at the bottom of the screen, go into task manager and end the task from either the applications or process tab? I know it doesn't get rid of it but it may save time.

I have a system with multiple physical drives.  The system disk shows activity in the graphs to the right side of the disk tab.  However, in the disk activity panel, where it shows which files are being read/written, it gives the wrong path,
to a non-existent location on the other physical disk.
For example, instead of the expected C:\Users\username\ntuser.dat  it lists the file location as D:\1\Users\username\ntuser.dat.
Every file listed in the panel looks like this.
The graph for disk D shows no activity.
Is this something I need to be concerned about.  The system seems to be performing normally.

Hello sevenforums.
I have a problem that i hope somebody here can help me fix.
one of my old disks that i want to remove is marked as the system disk even though my OS is not installed there and i need to mark my other disk as system disk.
i want to remove the old disk to make way for newer disks, but simply removing the disk causes boot errors, can anybody tell me how to mark my other disk as the system disk?

A:The wrong disk is marked as a system disk, causing complication.

Do you have a Windows Recovery CD or USB ready ?
If yes then just remove the 'old disk.

In BIOS set disk you want to be the 'new' system disk as first disk (if more than one disk)
Boot recovery media. Run 'Automatic Repair'.
If repair reports errors that cannot be fixed, go to command promt and type:

Using Windows Live Mail 2011 in Windows 7 - I receive the following error on any email in which I select an HTML link. This occurs in my roadrunner email and my hotmail.
wlmail - Wrong Volume "The wrong volume is in the drive. Please insert volume MFL_PRO into drive D:." I searched the Windows Live support forum, I found 5 occurrences of this same problem but no resolution is offered in any of those posts. Obviously there's something going on. MFL_PRO is associated with my Brother printer. This was probably the last SW I installed via the CD drive if that provides a clue. If I insert the driver disc then I don't get the error but I can't leave it that way. I have included a screenshot.

Try to do a repair of WLM. Go to Programs and Features, highlight Windows Live Essentials, click the button at the top "repair" and in the next window select "repair".

I was trying to dual boot win 8 and win7(was already installed) on my laptop.During installation win8 was giving an error,that win could not update the computer's boot configuration.(See attached pic )
I googled this error and came across this post.

list disk
select volume x (x = being the volume number of your HDD)
create partition primary
format fs=ntfs quick
Reboot and try setup again (I use this for USB drives, but they are not partitioned, I imagine this will kill all partitions on the disk and create just one new one)

After doing all this I was able to install window 8 but my 2 hard disk partition are not showing.My total hard disk is of 300 GB,but now only a single partition of 149 GB is showing.The remaining hard is not visible anywhere,not in disk management, and not even in ease-us disk partition.

Volume buttons on my media keyboard control the wrong sound device.
I have both Speakers and Headphones plugged in and they show up as 2 different devices in Sound > Playback Devices.
Headphones are plugged into the USB keyboard.
The Speakers are set as the Default Device.
Using the volume nob on my keyboard changes the volume for the Headphones instead of the keyboard.

Kind of pointless to change the volume for the non-default device, since it's not in use right?
I've not seen any way to change this anywhere as far as I can find.
I dont think this is working as intended, is there any way to fix this?

I had all my files saved on the secondary Western Digital 160GB Sata HDD, it was listed first at the time... But I accidentally deleted the volume on it.. Is there a way to get those files back? I had photos, movies, music, some other important files. The whole reason for having them on that secondary drive was to save them (kicking myself), until I installed Windows 7 on the new 500GB Sata HDD... I got a copy of Paragon Partition Manager 11 Personal ... and going through the Undelete Partition wizard now... Any help? Suggestions? Thanks in advance!

PS. I just did the "delete" option in the Windows 7 installation section for "advanced options", the HDDs were there.. but I accidentally hit delete on the 160GB instead... That's all I did with the drive though.

A:Went through to Windows 7 installation, deleted wrong HDD volume..

To try and answer your question; yes and no. You can take the drive and try to have it professionally recovered. There are some companies out there that specifically recover data from these types of situations. This can be very expensive and no guarantee. I know this not what you wanted to here.

I have 3 hdd in my system and have made notations as to the location of each drive and how the OS see's each of them...ie 0 is hard drive 1, 1 is hard drive 2 and 2 is hard drive 3, which is the way I have mine installed in the hdd cage...I know that hdd 0 is the 1TB drive and hdd 1 and 2 are 320 GB for backups and data storage. Keeping in mind each drive letter that the OS assigns to each of them. So when a re-install of the OS comes along I know what hdd is what and where.

I'm puzzling over why I can't load Win10 in a dual boot system. Running EasyBCD (in win7)I find Win10 is pointing to HarddiskVolume3. After searching the internet, I eventually found that I can get the volume numbers using Diskpart and what I found may be my problem. EasyBCD is telling me that Win10 is on HarddiskVolume3 whereas Diskpart is telling me it is on HarddiskVolume2 with counting starting at 0 (zero). If this is right then of course Win10 won't load because it is looking at the wrong volume. Just how do I tell my PC that Win10 is on HarddiskVolume2. Yes, Win10 IS on the third volume but volume counting starts at HarddiskVolume0 (zero). I'm attaching two graphics which may help explain what I am talking about.

I'm hoping someone can tell me what I'm doing wrong or what is going wrong. Not only that but I'm hoping someone can tell me how to fix it. Hoping to hear from someone soon.


A:Wrong Volume Being Pointed To In Dual Boot System?

In Windows 7 Disk Mgmt add a Drive Letter for Windows 10, then add Windows 10 using EasyBCD which is the correct way another OS is added. Drive Letter - Add, Change, or Remove in Windows 7 - Windows 7 Forums

How was Windows 10 installed on the PC? If you unplugged the other drive during its install then ideally you would boot the choice of OS by setting preferred to boot first in BIOS Boot Priority Order, then trigger the other using the one-time BIOS Boot Menu key.

Having insalled a live update to Norton Antivirus, my computer rebooted this morning and started coming up with the blue screen of death and the error message Unmountable Boot Volume.

Having followed the recommended suggestions I found on the web -

In the Windows XP Recovery Console:
Then type "chkdsk /p" without the quotes and hit enter
When that is done type "fixboot" and hit enter
"Y" and enter at the prompt
Then type "exit" and hit enter
The system will now reboot into Windows

- I now have a hard disk that on booting gives an error "NTLDR not found".

If I put another bootable HDD on and boot into windows XP with the old XP disk as a second drive, it shows up as a FAT system with only 10MB... this is a 40GB drive

Needless to say I have recent data on the HDD that I need - can anyone help??

First of all, don't write anything to it yet. It only decreases the possibilities to recover data.

I was trying to install Windows 7 ultimate on a Lenovo b570 that had Windows 7 Home Premium, I Gparted the drive to all unallocated, and started the W7 install, at 57%, it hangs for three hours, I take the disc out, notice fingerprints, used a CD cleaner, and cleaned it, I put the CD back in, waited for it to spin up, before hitting "try again" with the "No disc in the drive message" after hitting "try again", instead of it continuing like normal, it kept saying "The wrong volume is in the drive" despite putting the SAME disc in. No matter how many time I try to click, "try again", I get the same "The wrong volume is in the drive" message. If I hit "continue" I get a "Windows was unable to complete the installation" the computer restarts, but now I get a "Bootmgr is missing" Won't even boot to CD, not even Gparted again!
Any ideas on a fix on these various problems with installation?

A:Cannot install Windows 7 on Lenovo B570 "The wrong volume is in the drive" 57%

Hi. Is booting from a USB flash drive an option? It would be a lot more reliable, faster and one could even inject all current updates to the install wim file (a little over 7GB to date).
Just create the bootable drive
Extract the image to the root of the drive
Boot from drive and install
If all USB ports are 3.0 or better... one may have to configure BIOS to enable legacy and use a USB 2.0 drive as there may arise a driver issue when trying to install. One may pybass these errors by also including the secure boot option to Windows 7 installer.

Well my computer is messed up somehow. This is a run down of what happens to my computer.
I start up my computer
Does the normal thing until it starts loading, where the bar goes from left to right and the window sign is there.
A second after that loading thing happens , it flashed the blue screen, and I recorded it with a camera and says something about Unmountable Boot Volume.
After it flashed blue screen it restarts and does the same thing over again.
Therefor, it never goes to login place, to get to desktop.
When it restarts,it goes to menu where it has run in safemode, normalmode, safe with command prompt, and safe with networking or something. Nothing else. Each option I choose makes the computer reenter the blue screen. So I can never get it to actually turn on.

Please describe whats wrong, and how to fix it please. Is it completely dead? Can I reinstall windows on it to make it run again? I just want to completely wipe the hardrive out and restart everything. Theres probably a virus on it. Please desribe very detailed, for im not very experienced with computer problems. My hardrive on my desktop is 80gig, so not very big.
Thanks!!!!!!!!!! Please help tho

A:BSOD:Unmountable Boot Volume, whats wrong? and How do I fix it? Detailed please

It sounds like your hard drive may have a bad sector or there may be some file corruption. You have 2 options here. It would help to confirm the diagnosis if you can tell us what you were doing when this error started.

1). Boot into safe mode and run "chkdsk /r"
- it is possible your computer will not boot into safe mode either depending on what the problem is. If it won't just let us know.

2). Boot to the recovery console on your Windows XP cd and run "chkdsk /p /r" from there.

Let us know how that goes and we can suggest something else if that does not resolve your issue.
My brother's PC did that same thing after he installed a second hard drive and some more RAM, hopefully yours will be as easy to fix as his was.

It you wanted/needed to correct it to have C: as "System, Active" you will need to mark C: as active and then you will need to run a startup repair as many as 3 separate times with system restarts between the repairs to mark C: as "System, Active" but answer the questions above first.

Disk\\?\Volume{f4acb2ae-2618-11e3-8a57-806e6fe6963?\{+}\{+} Boot Record
Error: The parameter is incorrect (87)

I have run chkdsk /r on the boot drive (an SSD). I have run AdwCleaner. Neither find anything wrong, and the PC seems to run perfectly.

I found the "{f4acb2ae. . .} folder in the registry: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Explorer\MountPoints2\CPC\Volume. It's there twice.

What is this "thing" and how can I get rid of it? If I zap both of the registry folders with this name, will it render the PC unbootable? Are the entries valid and Avast is issuing a false positive?

Administrator: If this should be under Security, please move it.

Hi, I find my C disk's total size is 93.9 GB, free space appears to be 32.9 GB, but when I select all the files in the disc (including hidden ones), the total volum is just 19.2 Gb...So I really hope to know where is the rest hard disc space...
Many thanks!

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!!!?

Oh, and the 37 GB says this:

37.22 GB NTFS

I tried to install a .exe file (in order to support ArchiCad 12) onto my laptop (Gateway NV79). I get a message saying "Out of Disk Space -Volue 'D:'". It should be installing onto the C: drive. My D: drive is my cd/dvd drive. I am not sure why it is doing this and cannot figure out how to correct this (I am in no way a computer expert). Does anyone have any idea what I can do to get this to install?

A:Out of Disk Space- Volume D:

Are you getting a chance to specify where the program installs to? Where are you running the .exe file from?

I have recently installed a second 320GB which I want to mirror my main drive (also 320 GB)

I can see the drive in "Disk Management" and it shows as "unallocated"

I have right clicked and started the Mirror wizard and the disk appears - but the total volume size is shown as 0 - it is greyed so I cannot change it. Underneath the correct sizes are shown. The wizard will not allow me to continue.

I tried to format the disk using "New Simple Volume" and this seems to create a K: drive - but when I right click it does not give me the option to Mirror

Any ideas most welcome

I have a spare Acer Win 7 laptop without a HD, so installed an HP with a different operating system (8). This did not boot so I took out my Dell OEM 7 and install went through, but there are multiple issues such as no network driver, no internet access, drives do not work for download..
OK, it was a hard lesson to learn in using a proprietary OS disk, but I was trying to learn some more computing...
What can be done since I burned a bootable Win7 from Softlay, but as stated, the cd drive will not open files. I tried DOS partitioning, but will not format existing system.
Thanks in advance.

A:Wrong OEM disk

You need to contact Acer and obtain/purchase recovery media for your actual model of laptop,

As the Softlay disks are not sanctioned by Microsoft you cannot say what they will do to your system. They say on their site that they are MSDN discs, As these are not available to the general public you have to consider how genuine they are

My daughter has an HP 64 bit computer running Vista home. Through her college she ordered Win 7 . When both the download and the disk came from Digital River they both say win7 32 bit.
From reading on the forum it seems that the 64 bit maybe on the disk.

1. Is the 64 bit on the Disk.
2. How do I ensure that the 64 bit is installed when I do the upgrade?
Thanks in advance!!

Hi Mesa7! I'm pretty sure that if it say 32-bit then it is 32-bit. It would be kind of hard to include two full OS's on one DVD. I would find a copy of 64-bit, (From wherever you can ) and then use the product key that DigitalRiver supplied.

I have a 06 Gateway with AMD Athlon 3700, 2 GB RAM, and running XP Media Center Edition. When I open up the System Information it shows my operating system as XP Professional. And when I run the sfc /scannow, (system file checker tool), it gets nearly finished and then asks for my windows XP Professional CD2 disk, so it can copy files to the dll cache which are needed. But when I put in the Gateway OEM XP Media Center Edition CD, it says that is the wrong CD. System Properties and the boot.ini file do show it correct as XP Media Center. I did try editing a couple of inf files as per Microsoft KB article # 897128, even though that did apply to XP Home. Maybe for Media Center I need to find and edit some other inf files in the main C:\Windows\Inf folder to fix this issue ? http://support.microsoft.com/kb/897128/en-us

A:sfc and wrong O/S disk

Sounds like you would have to backup all of the important data on your computer to another media like CD-R's, DVD or other media that you prefer and then do a clean install with the legal Windows Media Center install disk that you have. Somewhere along the line Windows XP Pro got installed and if this is a media center computer then XP Pro is the wrong OS for it.

I installed Windows 7 after two days of installation capacity of 39 gb hdd is.
What do you capacity be true?

A:After instalation windows 7 volume on the disk is 39 GB

Windows alone takes up around 20 GB.

As I understand it, your C drive is using 39 GB and you have about 20 programs installed.

Your system specs say you have 3 GB of RAM. Is that correct?

Post a screen shot of Windows Disk Management.
