Post 3+ Months Ago

I had a hard drive crash last month and was able to get it up and going. Yesterday I got the "blue screen of death" when shutting down. I ran some diags and got an index and Metadata File Record Error". I searched Google with no luck and thought I'd ask if anyone can give me some information on how to fix it.

I am running Windows XP Pro using NTFS.

Thanks in advance for any and all comments.
:wink:

Hi Pucci,

Did this error come up from a Seagate HDD?

I ran a diags through Seatools and got the same error.

Can you please let me know how you fixed this? Do yuo know what caused it?

I actually just built a new computer a month ago, and its still not working because windows is taking over 4hrs to install! As you can guess, its really frustrating that i cant use my new comp.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers

Hi,

Yep, it was a Seagate. It happened a while ago and I don't remember exactly how it got fixed. I remember running all the Seagate utilites and disabling some Registry entries that Norton kept finding, but I don't know exactly what did it. The drive which was three years old and had more bad clusters than I like wasn't worth the risk. I swapped it out and now only use it as a secondary backup external drive. It spends it's life powered down most of the time.

Hope this helps, sorry I couldn't have been of more help.
