There's no guarantee. A previous post from Andrea Logan mentioned Knoppix worked for her. Since you're stuck might as well give it a try? I'm really hoping your HDD is not physically damaged. Best of luck!

No luck with Knoppix.. I can access the files I was able to access on Windows, but nothing else. Not only that, if I try to copy a folder with some corrupt files in it, it locks up the drive..

I'll try to find the site that gave me very detailed instructions of how to get my files, using Knoppix...it really did work!! I wasn't able to get ANY files using windows, and I got all of them using the Knoppix boot disc.

Aha, here it is: http://www.shockfamily.net/cedric/knoppix/

Even comes with pics. Some of my stuff was in different locations, but this was a HUGE help!

That would be most helpful, thank you!

Right now I am able to retrieve some of my files to my new external HD.. but the problem is that the files which are corrupt end up locking up the HD with the corrupted files.. so I am unable to just copy entire folders at a time. I almost have to go one file at a time and try to copy them over. It sucks because it will take forever and I still can't get all my files.

Thanks for the link. It looks like it explains how to get the data off in the same way that I've been doing.. so I guess I have physical damage on my drive. sucks. most places charge like $2000 to recover the data. I just want my pictures back :(

>> Re: Fixing Inpage Operation error using chkdsk worked
Hi all, had to join just to post my results. Laptop wouldn't boot so bought a new desktop, but wanted to get the files off of, and continue using as a storage drive, the 60gb drive that came out of the laptop. Bought the external case as many on here have, hooked it up through USB, and got the dreaded inpage error. Found this thread, did the chkdsk e:/r, and I have the drive back. My question now is, how long is this drive going to last? lol don't want to use it if it's on it's last leges. I think like some others on here, a virus comprmised the drive. I'll run a scan to be sure. Anyhoo, thanks for the help, and here are the results from my chkdsk, may help someone. My drive is a 60gb, had about 9gb free, and chkdsk took about 2 hours to complete.

i have a 110GB HDD in my Dell D630 Latitude running XP. I have partioned my drive into C & D. Yesterday while working my system got stuck, got the blue screen of death and after that my HDD wont boot. I hooked the HDD to my Desktop and was able to see both the drive but neither of them is accessible. Because all my data was on the 2nd partition i.e., D i formatted and re-installed XP on C drive. each time i reboot the system XP runs the system check up on D but i am not able to access D drive. keep getting the message "Error performing inpage operation" i have tried CHKDSK D: /f and whatever else i could but i am not able to recover my data. I could sure use some help here.

Thanks a bunch fi he help!! For redundancy on hdd data try getting an extra hdd with the same space as the one you want a backup of and get a raid controller either sata or ide, (whichever you have) and run RAID1 it will mirror the first disk so you have an exact backup of that disk.

The hard drive that I was having issues with the quoted error WAS my backup. I so appreciate all the helpful info I found here. I do backup my info regularly, but it was the backup that came up with the error performing inpage operation. I had since reformatted my regular drive and was trying to get the backup info back on my main drive.

By the way - it worked beautifully!!!!!!

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.



I also registered here to thank the recommendation of the use of CheckDisk command 'chkdsk c: /r (c: = name of HDD)'

It solved my problem of a Windows XP Boot Loop when my computer crashed and would continuously boot to the safe mode screen and whatever option I chose, it would restart whilst windows was loading at the splash screen.

When the Windows XP install and repair function did not work because it did not find windows xp installed on a hard drive partition, I did the following:

1. Took out hard drive and connected to another computer as a slave
2. Windows XP sensed the hardware on boot up but I could not access C:\ partition due to ' Error Performing Inpage Operation '
3. I then did the chkdsk c: /r (c: = name of HDD) in the command prompt
4. Waited around 3-4 hours
5. Fix was complete!

Hope this helps other people who were in the situation as me, about to give up! :X
Thanks again! :D

So once again thants to all who contributed to this thread.

so get this,i tried chkdsk h:/r,h: being my corrupt drive.it gets to stage 4 of 5,and it stays there.says 0 percent complete,for about 2 hours.is it normal for it to stay that way so long?hard drive's only 5-6% full,so it shouldn't take a long time does it?

Hello,

I have the same persistent error performing inpage operation. Now I tried to fix the drive performing a chkdsk as described by all the users here in the forum. Unfortunately my command line says "access denied" after typing chkdsk e: /r

What should I do?

In addition to my post:

when I connect the external drive and start my computer, windows performs a check which only has 3 steps - not 5 as described here.
The check say it is finished, but the computer does not start up afterward.

Any ideas?
