I checked the link, 0% information about a HARD DRIVE error. The original post said HARD DRIVE and I see a post about some junk from Microsoft that basically talks about floppy drives.

Anyone else know what would make the HARD DRIVE give the errors the original poster was posting? I am having the same errors.

The link also talks about network connectivity and I/O errors.I'm sorry my effort couldn't find anything hard drive specific for that error. Perhaps when you post next time you could give a little more detail like operating system, hard drive manufacturer, more specifics about what the error message says. It has to be more than just saying Error Performing Inpage Operation. I usually can guess all this stuff, but my crystal ball is in the shop for a little preventive maintenance

Hi! John H

Your remarks to Payton were quite inappropriate: Quote:- you said :I see a post about some JUNK from Microsoft that basically talks about floppy drives. Unquote;

When posting, a little more detail in future would have be more helpful

In the main Payton's experience and help to many in the past has been "bullet proof" and HWA and myself have high respect for him.

I hope that you find the answer

Regards
Take Care
Vic Uk.

Firstly, my remarks were not inappropriate. I also was not the original poster of the original question.
Secondly, if you re-read the statement. I said JUNK from Microsoft, not from Payton.
I never said he was JUNK or his remarks were not helpful, I said the information from MS is junk, they dont give enough info. and I was hoping for more info. on the error.
I know more info. as far as OS, SP, Disc Mftcr. etc. would be good and I will input that info. now.

I just wanted to say, look, I wasnt saying you suck or anything, just that MS sucks and we all know it :p

OS - XP
SP - 2
Drive - Maxtor MaxLine II - 300Gb - IDE Drive

After a reboot, the drive is totally unaccessible. In Computer Management - Disk Manager - It shows up, but 100% empty, showing as if nothing was ever on the disk.

Thanks & Cheers
jon

This could be a sign of a hard drive that is about to fail. I received these same error messages trying to access data for recovery purposes from a drive that had crashed and was reporting bad clusters, cross-linked files and such. My recommendation to you is to make sure you have a backup of any important data on that hard drive before you go too far trying to troubleshoot the problem. The data you are trying to access when you get those errors is probably not recoverable. The situation could get worse. Sorry I don't have more help to offer beyond that.

PS: The information in the Microsoft article is accurate even if it does not apply to your situation.

Since we do not know the exact circumstances that precipitated the problem the link suggested is quite informative if you have a general understanding of Windows. The reason that the network becomes involve dis that many file functions occur throught the Network redirector. This is because such file operations need to beable to decide whether it is a local or remote network operation.

So before people bag someone else ensure you understand some underlying processes and not show your ignorance. None of us are perfect or infalliable but we all continue to learn. So rather than bagging someone suggest a better link with more info if you are such an expert

Calm down guys it's not that big a deal
Jon. Microsoft wouldn't have programmed the OS to give that error code unless it was somehow related to what's described in the link. many computer errors are created by a cascade effect where the root cause would seem to be completely removed from the final manifestation of the error. Don't look at error code explanations as an absolute truth, but rather as a starting point. I know it's frustrating dealing with computer error, and when one gets frustrated, it can aall seem like crap. I can't count the times I wanted to get my gun and put my puter out of its misery. After all PC does stand for personal confuser.

Jon:

Found this in a Google:

Quote:

Error performing inpage operation.
An inpage operation is performed when any data had been removed from RAM to the swap file and is later needed again. Before the process in need of that data can access it, the system loads it again from the swap file into RAM and directs the process to that data.
This did not work here. There might be several reasons. Your hardware might be faulty. Most probably it is the hard disk. Perform a backup of your system! Let windows check the hard disk (UNCHECK search for bad sectors!). You may also perform a defragmentation, but this is more a means to speed up the access rather than clearing any faults. A last resort (Caution, may take several hours!) is a check with checked 'search for bad sectors).

I had this problem with my external hard drive. (60gb maxter slim) It connects with just a usb for transfer and power. It was plugged into my laptop and then it got unplugged while I was in the middle of something. I tried to plug it back in and it would do anything, I went to my computer and it wasnt there. After awhile the icon came up and i clicked on it; the window seized up and the drive started making grinding sounds. I searched the net and nothing helped, most sites gave no help or said the drive went bad and all info was lost. This bummed me out, so I plugged it into my desktop and left the system and the hd running for about three weeks. The grinding sounds got louder until i was almost going to unplug it, since it sounded like it was damn near about to disassemble itself, but I didnt. When the noise stopped I went to look and everything worked fine and i got all my information no problem.

This solved my problem and I thought Id share it.

I had exactly the same error on my hd (an old Quantum 40GB disk). Windows XP would not even access the drive and showed it as empty after about 3 months of not using the drive. It was full of data which I hadn't backed up.

I mounted it onto my linux pc (running Fedora Core 5 with NTFS read support) and could pull all the data off of it onto my windows pc over the network without problems. Hope this is of help to someone.

Cheers
Harald

Just found this thread - I had just imaged a failing hdd (win2000 os) to a new one and rec'd the error when I tried to connect the new drive in an external usb case.
Fitted it into a PC and used the win2000 recovery console, did a FIXMBR then put it back in the usb case and now I can see it again. Might help someone...

Cheers,

Rob.

It works perfectly lol

This is what the guy says to do:
1. Start > Run > type in cmd then click OK to get a command prompt.
2. Type in chkdsk e: /r (replace e: with the drive letter of your external hard drive).

This won't do any harm, it will fix errors on the disk and try to recover data from bad sectors. It might not solve the problem but it's worth a try.
