Preferred Solution: Spin up Time - Warning Imminent data lost is predistec

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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Are you having trouble with this drive? If not, this error could be meaningless. Does the Drive pass its SMART test?

A:HDD imminent failure warning

take out the hard drive, take it to the store with you and tell the salesperson that you need a dongle in order use this drive by external usb port to another computer. When you get home, assuming you have another computer that you can use thier, start the computer and after you are on your desktop plug the old drive using the dongle you just bought. With some luck it should connect just like a thumb drive would. If the drive has a clicking sound when it runs and you can connect to it remove all data as fast as you can, becuase it will not be running for much longer, make sure that you make a priority list and follow it.

Hi first time user hope I get this write, I am using system mechanic pro latest version and on the hard drive monitor status it is showing a warning for the spin retry count.

My laptop is only 2 months old should I be worried? and have it looked at. Thanks in advance. Operating system is win8.1

A:My Satellite notebook shows "Spin retry count" warning

In my opinion there is no reason for panic. You are using third part software and they have own rule for reporting S.M.R.T values.

If there is no other problem I think everything is OK.

Open preinstalled ?PC health monitor? and check ?HDD Status?. What is reported there?
I hope ?Good?.

I've got a 160 GB Western Digital HDD that is working perfectly. Out of curiosity, I checked the SMART test in Speedfan and found that while my 120 GB is perfect, the 160 failed because of a Bad Spin-Up Time.

I never would have known, my backups are running fine (this is the backup drive), the drive is still silent, and it's never given me a reason to doubt it's perfectly fine.

Should I be concerned with this? The WD diagnostic shows the same issue, but everything else tests perfect.

I must admit that this drive is under a load, about 40 GB are written to it every night as they are backed up from my 120 GB "Network Serving Drive".

I have a issue with the dvd spin-down time, that is very short and thus extremely irritating. When I browse some disc, dvd spins-up to full speed to read a file and after few (around 5) seconds without read request, it spins down (stops disc rotation). On next file that I want to browse, it starts to spin-up again, which takes some seconds.  This is very annoying and time-consuming when browsing lots of files, but I was not able to increase the time that disk stays rotating. I tried Nero DriveSpeed, but it was not able to help. I also found no help on the topic in the net. Do you have idea how to increase this time?  Thanks,  Tomhet

I have a laptop with a Matshita UJ-842 drive, and it annoying spins down after about 12 seconds of no requests for data, which messes up playback in some cases. Is there a way to change the amount of time it will keep the disc spinning while idle? I'm guessing it's a firmware-level thing.

I have a 300gb Maxtor Drive partitioned into 4 drives...the OS on the hd was Windows Vista...While i was reinstalling XP i accidently formatted the whole drive because it didnt show the rest of the partitions on the screen...by the time i realized what i just did it was already 5% formatted...so i decided to stop it by turning off my computer...

i was wondering if the data (music, files, pictures, etc etc) is still recoverable...if so, what are the necessary steps that i should take to recover it...my friend sent me OnTrack 6.3 EasyRecovery Pro and i went out and bought Search and Recover 4...should i do a clean format on the drive and then run a data recovery software or should i run the software with the drive being 5% formatted...

Hi, i experience BSOD frequently now, about twice a week, at random time (but never when i play games, so far).

I suspected RAM since i just bought a new RAM, but i scanned the RAM with memtest86+ and it had no error.

This has become a nuisance now because my hard drive (F:, 3TB) runs very slowly now and i need to check disk it, but the last time my PC crashed into BSOD when i check disk the F after about 9 hours.

Help please, thank you.

A:BSOD, random time, different warning

All different errors, but all of them are pointing to Memory corruption. How many passes did you run memtest86+? It needs to run for 8 complete passes at least. If you havent completed 8 passes, you are suggested to do so. And a screenshot/camera snap after completing 8 passes would be good for documentation.

Also, as an attempt, you may try to update the BIOS to Version 3602 from ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P8P67 PRO (REV 3.1)

Also update JMicron RAID from ftp://driver.jmicron.com.tw/SATA_Controller/Windows/ . get the latest WHQL.

Let us know the results.

A:First time hijackthislogger, I have a false windows warning popping up.

Hi there jennifah

Welcome to TSF

Thank you for your patience. I will be helping you deal with the issues raised in your log from this point onwards

Before we start jumping into things, here is a quick basic note which I mention to everyone. The fix which I have provided for you is for this computer only, it should not be used on any other computer. Each fix is tailor made for the specific task in hand. If for some reason you have system restore disabled, then please re-enable it before proceeding, an infected restore is better than none. Please read through the fix first and set enough time aside to complete the task in one session. If there is anything you feel needs clarification then please ask - do not guess! Please copy and paste any requested logs into replies rather than add as attachments, this makes it easier for analysis.

If this is a computer from a work place then please advise your IT department of the concerning issues before commencing past this point.

Please follow these directions in the order they are set out for you.

Please scan with ComboFix.exe. Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running the tool:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/comb...o-use-combofix

Please ensure you read this guide carefully and install the Recovery Console first.

The Windows Recovery Console will allow you to boot up into a special recovery (repair) mode. This allows us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware. It is a simple procedure that will only take a few moments of your time.

Once installed, you should see a blue screen prompt that says:

The Recovery Console was successfully installed.

Please continue as follows:
Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
Click Yes to allow ComboFix to continue scanning for malware.

When the tool is finished, it will produce a report for you.

Please include the following reports for further review, and so we may continue cleansing the system:

Go to Start > Run and copy/paste the following into the Run box and click OK:

C:\Qoobox\Add-Remove Programs.txt

A text file should open. Please post the contents of that file in your next reply.

Please include in your next post
> C:\ComboFix.txt
> Add-Remove Programs.txt
> New HijackThis log.

Every time I log into this site, my Spybot S&D Residence warns me that there's a known harmful download called "Avenue A, Inc." that wants to download. This just started happening last night. Is this place infected now?!?!? Anyone know what the heck "Avenue A, Inc." is, and why it keeps asking me to block the download?
 

A:Every time I visit this forum or website I get a download warning.

Avenue A is an advertising cookie, it is a tracking cookie but is harmless....you can set SpyBot to exclude it, or keep it detected and clean it when you run SS&D. The site owner himself has answered this question, which comes up fairly often....
It is not a harmful hijacking thing, just a harmless cookie. It apparently is from a sponsor of this site.
However...some people claim to have other thoughts::

A:Repeated Trojan Warning Every Time I try to Access the Internet

Windows 7 64 bit OS has been pretty secure until the bad guys came up with an infection for the master boot record which bypasses windows 7 and 64 bit security measures.Post your gmer log only here in this forumPlease download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.Download Link 1Download Link 2MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.Make sure you are connected to the Internet.Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
For instructions with screenshots, please refer to the How to use Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Guide.When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:Update Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareLaunch Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareThen click Finish.MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue.If you encounter any problems while downloading the definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.On the Scanner tab:Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.Then click on the Scan button.If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button. The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.Back at the main Scanner screen:Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.Exit MBAM when done.Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

@Huracan :

Based on my personal experience; if you encountered an alert as you posted, then expect a similar alerts every time due to application rule comparison algorithm.

Hi there,

Every time I run Explorer (my home page is set to Google), a pop up from Avast says that it has blocked the site because it is a malicious URL. I guess that I've probably picked up some virus/trojan, but I have no idea how to start to get rid of it. I have temporarrily disabled Avast so I can get onto the Internet.
 
Any help would be genuinely appreciated,

Hi there,my name is Marius and I will be assisting you with your Malware related problems.Before we move on, please read the following points carefully.First, read my instructions completely. If there is anything that you do not understand kindly ask before proceeding.Perform everything in the correct order. Sometimes one step requires the previous one.If you have any problems while you are follow my instructions, Stop there and tell me the exact nature of your problem.Do not run any other scans without instruction or Add/ Remove Software unless I tell you to do so. This would change the output of our tools and could be confusing for me.Post all Logfiles as a reply rather than as an attachment unless I specifically ask you. If you can not post all logfiles in one reply, feel free to use more posts.If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed.Stay with me. I will give you some advice about prevention after the cleanup process. Absence of symptoms does not always mean the computer is clean.My first language is not english. So please do not use slang or idioms. It could be hard for me to read.

Had a post it note type software that would display several notes everytime I booted. I tried to use system restore and found it turned off. Don't know how it was switched. Possibly a virus or software bug. Is there another way to restore to a previous date using third party software?

A:Lost data

Sorry to hear of your issue.  If you do not have any system restore points, then, as far as I know (and I am not an expert), you are pretty much stuck.  There are programs that will recover files, but none that I have heard about (so far) that will re-install programs that have disappeared.  Did you check the Control Panel (Uninstall Programs) to see if the program is still showing as installed?  If so, is there a "Repair" option if you click uninstall?  Some programs come with a repair capability to repair the program files and registry entries if something has become corrupted.
 
Personally, I rely on full system images done weekly on both of my computers, plus daily backups of any changed data files.  Nothing "forgets" faster than a computer.  Backups are really worth the effort.  There are lots of great products out there (Easeus, Macrium, etc.).
 
Hope this was of some help.  Have a great day.
 
Regards,
-Phil

A few days ago, I went through extensive work translating the contents of various word files (in the process, ridding myself of significant data to concisely organize said files) to OpenOffice. Only days later, I moved the files to default folders belonging to the partition (created when i partiotioned my drive, but i haven't a clue what they are: named with random characters and contain txt files), and was unable to later access them (folder indicated that 0 files are contained within it, which i infer to mean that my files were basically deleted). So I restore my system to the most recent restore point, and the original file where i kept my OpenOffice files is where it used to be, the only problem being that the files arent there - nor do they exist on the hard-drive at all.

Is there any chance I can regain the data or is it irretrievably lost?

A:Lost Data?

System Restore, well, restores the system. I've never seen it restore lost user data. In fact, it has been moreover the CAUSE of lost user data. It is marked 'evil' in my book.

Anyway, from what I gather, you created OpenOffice file(s), copied data into them from the Word documents. Then days later, moved the Word?/OpenOffice? file to another directory/drive, but they are corrupted? Was that before or after restore? Was that on the same partition Windows resides on? What files did you delete?

You could try repair install if the pc gives you the option/

1 - Boot with the Windows XP CD press any to boot XP disk
2 - Boot with the Windows XP CD and at the Setup Screen press Enter
3 - You will be taken to the Windows XP Licensing Agreement. After reading the agreement press F8 to proceed.
4 - The next screen gives you the option to do a fresh (clean) install or to repair the selected Windows XP installation. To run a Repair Install Press "R" at this time.
**Note** if you do not see the option to repair the selected Windows XP installation DO NOT choose the option to continue installing a fresh copy without repairing as that will overwrite your data and cause unrecoverable data loss.

5 - Windows XP will copy the necessary files to your Hard Drive to begin the installation and will then reboot. You will see the message that informs you to "Press any key to boot the CD". Do not press any keys this time just wait a few seconds and the Windows Startup Screen will be displayed. Following this you will be greeted by the Windows XP Setup Screens.
6 - When Setup has completed you should find all of your previously installed apps and settings are intact

Ive just installed a new Samsung H/D WITH xp/sp1 nfts and used original H/D with win 98se as slave (Maxtor)
The problem is that xp locates the drive and asks if i want to format it as file system comes up as RAW?
ALL jumper settings and bios detection is correct and the second drive (win 98se) Runs perfectly well on its own right with no problems?? fat 32 sys
I would like to transfer all files over to new drive before re formating this one.

I have recently attempted to upgrade a Dell PowerEdge 840 server from 2 mirrored and dynamic 500gb drives to 2 1TB mirrored drives. The SAS 5/ir controller had the 2nd mirrored pair removed and I now need to recover the data from the 2 500gb drives (approx 400gb of data). I am unable to restored the raid 1 configuration from the drives back to the controller (after 5+ hours of phone support with Dell).

When I connect each drive seperately to another system, they come up as Unallocated and show up as having been Dynamic drives in the mirrored set. I am currently attempting a data recovery on one of the drives, but looking for a speedier and more effective way to recover the important data fromt he 2nd mirrored drive.

Any assistance is GREATLY appreciated.

I had to run my recovery disk on my Windows XP Media Center 2005 system. Although it said I wouldn't lose any data nor files, I did. But only under my profile.

The kids' data is all there, but all of mine if gone; Favorites, Wedding Photos, My Music, etc. I am looking for a way to recover all this. Any suggestions? After a 4 week strike I have no money to buy software so I need a good one that's free.

For starters; Stop Using your computer is the MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU CAN DO.
do you have access to another one to use until you try and recover your files?
I can relate on the money issue I just got one days notice that there is no work for a while Grrrr
File recovery is tedious and requires lots of patience.
Free file recovery programs are hard to find that actually work.
Most of the ones you see online that appear to be free are simply trials and will not actually recover the files for you unless you buy the program

A:lost data

Did you happen to create a restore point on that computer? If you did, it'll restore all things to that point, including all files that have been created since then. So, if you do this, proceed with caution. Alternately, there should be a folder containing the users contents. As far as e-mails go, you still should be able to log into the email and retrieve those. As far as the contacts, shouldn't that be with the email account? If not, those might be saved in the folder for that particular user. Make sure you're logged in as the administrator, and you should be able to access all the files.

When you reinstalled the OS, did you perform a clean install or an implace upgrade or repair?

Clean install wipe out the drive - format reinstall
Repair - choose repair option
Implace upgrade reinstalled windows over itself

Also are all the old application available or you had to reinstall them?

If you look at C:\ Document and Settings do you see your old profile which contains the old data?
Have you tried to do a search for the all data using windows search?

You would run chkdsk /f on the drive to determine if there was disk or file corruption.

That is an unusual location for OE which is usualy installed under the users profile

I was cleaning up some FileMaker files. The wrong ones went away. So I did some finds and looked everywhere for these files. They are gone!

I selected 2 files to move to the trash. When I moved them, the wrong ones disapeared. I didn't empty the trash or delete anything. However, I have searched everything and looked at every potential link. They just disappeared!

First, how can that happen? It didn't ask if I wanted to delete, etc., etc., or anything. Second, is there another possibility for me to look at? Could they have been hidden? Surely, there is no way to delete files without being asked if I really wnat to delete them!

This is very upsetting.

A:I Lost Some Data

If you think the files could be hidden, you can enable the ability to view hidden files in the Folder & Search Options.


Code:
Organize > Folder & Search Options > View Tab > Show Hidden Files, Folders and Drives
If you believe the files were deleted accidently, you can use a program like Recuva to recover them.

If you'd like a different explorer shell, there are quite a few options, here are a few:

xplorer?
XYPlorer
FreeCommander
DirectoryOpus

So you have reset the PC to its factory condition using a recovery CD ?

when you did this , did you do a repair or a full installation and did you reformat the harddrive ?

A:lost data

Files stored locally in the \my documents\ area of the computer can usually only be access when you're logged in as the relevant user. Don't panic, the files are still there, you just can't see them whilst you're logged in as the new user. If you think about it, this is exactly the effect you're looking for, it'll just require a small amount of preparation to get it working right for you.

You could log in with the local Administrator account, which will then allow you access to all the required folders, and transfer them across. The files will currently be in the following folder:

c:\documents and settings\<<OLDUSERNAME>>\My Documents\

where <<OLDUSERNAME>> is the logon name of the 'old' account.

Just transfer everything in there to

c:\documents and settings\<<NEWUSERNAME>>\My Documents\

where <<NEWUSERNAME>> is the logon name of the 'new' account.

You might also check the folder:

c:\documents and settings\<<OLDUSERNAME>>\Desktop\

just in case anything was stored on your old desktop. You can drag and drop those files straight onto your new desktop if you like, or alternatively the:

c:\documents and settings\<<NEWUSERNAME>>\Desktop\

Another alternative is to log back in as your original user, and then load all of your files onto a memory stick, or other removable media, or even create a new folder off the root of C:\ and transfer them across that way.

Well your programs are a different story than your data. If you wanted to get your Microsoft Office, or something like that you will need to have the installatoin disc/files to do so. However if you were hoping to get off some word or excel documents then you might be able to use a data recovery software to see if it is still there.

Oh-Oh, now I am in trouble. Recently had to reinstall office 2003 to my XP Pro system I just realized that it deleted all of my saved data stored in “My Documents.” In addition, my Norton Recycle Bin is empty. Is there anything I can do to recoup these lost documents? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Use system restore, go back to before the install, back up files to disk, then use system restore again to bring you back to the current settings

cant get any data from USB stick. Computer recognises the USB is in the port but requests for it to be inserted when I call for a previously create file or go to save on it, the message is the disk drive is not in use. Tried USB on another computer so thats nothe reason. Any ideas??

A:USB data lost

Welcome to TSF....

If the USB thumb drive works on another computer then first thing is to make a backup of the data on the thumb drive so you do not loose it.

Since the drive works on another USB port on another computer we can safely figure the drive is alright, so this means it is more than likely the USB post you are inserting the drive into on the computer that has a problem. Have you tried a different USB port on this computer? If not please try it and post back the results...

hi all
here I got surprised that data from my CD is lost.
I purchased a licenced copy of a software a long time back.that time it was ok and everything was fine.
now a days again I'd the requirement of that software.
this time when I tried to install from the same original CD given by the vender,it's not working.when I checked the disk it's showing no data.it's just an blank CD.
how it happend ?
is it possible that the data cen be lost from the CD after a certain period.
I requested the vender and sent the invoice,this time he charged me 50%of actual price and sent me the new CD.it's ok ,working fine
but my concern is it possible that the data can automaticaly be lost ?

Dear Friends,

I have a Fujitsu Siemens desktop pc bought 3 years ago.
Yesterday when I restarted it then I got message to enter a new name of pc, and new username name and password. In other words the message I got was someting about like I am setting up a brand new pc.

I lost all my previous work
Opera, Fire Fox, Microsoft Office (Word Excel, Power Point, Outlook), Nero, McAfee, every thing I lost

After I created new name to my pc and new username and password, I reinstalled again some few programs that I already have on cd. But stored lots of files into Opera that was my main Internet Browser.

Is that possible to look after my previous data (My old pc name & Username and Password)?

Hi GR7.

Is it possible that you've triggered a system restore to factory defaults from the recovery partition?

Is it possible that you have more than 1 HDD, or more than 1 partition on a single HDD that you've logged in to?

A friends laptop with all his work died. We have removed the HD and connected it ot a usb connection but just get errors and asks to format. Have tried HDD regenerator, easy recovery, getdatabackfor fat, file recover and some more with no luck. just errors. I take it that the drive is bad even though it makes noises.
 

A:Is the data lost?

You might be able to save the drive,

Using 2.5 cable adapter from laptop HDD to 3.5 desktop HDD connector. Best bet is to either find someone who has this type of setup or go buy the connectors yourself. You would still need to get Norton Ghost or opensource version to clone that bad drive to a new 2.5 HDD for the laptop. If it's really really bad and you get errors while cloning or backup then you're out of luck. You could put the drive in the refg to cool it then it again. Another way it to take a screw driver and tap it a few times lightly, don't go crazy. There are companies out there that can recover the data for you, but at a high price.

Hi .

Are you sure that nothing else has impacted this drive? I've seen totally full drives before but the files have always been visible.

And...in every case, I've seen a warning when the drive goes beyond a certain threshold when the user is trying to input more files.

Maybe your F: drive is just going bad and you are seeing the effects of such.

<<Also something to the effect that the data in F is "lost".>>

Can you be more exact?

As for recovery software...all sorts available, many of us have used such at one time. Are you talking free or paid?

A:Lost my data last night

If you wouldn't have touched your hard drive after losing the ability to boot into it, there would have been a chance of recovering most of your files from the hard drive. Unfortunately, since you have reformatted and installed everything back there is a slim chance that you may be able to recover anything. If you would like to attempt to see if there's anything left that is recoverable on your drive, try using RecoverMyFiles. For that, you will need to install it on another hard drive so it could scan the entire affected drive.
Sorry, but there isn't much else you can do. To prevent this from happening again, purchase an extra hard drive where you could store your media files instead of storing them on the main drive with the OS.

A:Data lost forever???

At this point in your problem, I'd disconnect your D: drive to prevent any further damage or loss.

It is possible to retrieve data off of a formatted drive. Although I can't tell you how at this point. (it's late here) And the necessary programs are not very expensive.

I think the most important thing here is to not be in a hurry. (and to disconnect the drive)

BTW, if you'll allow me to make a comment about your posting style, that was a huge long paragraph. If you would break it up by inserting a line break (make a new paragraph) every 2 or 3 sentences, it would be much easier to follow and read.

Good luck

My brother uses an app called fresh paint. Today he tried to use it and it would just crash every time. I had done the anniversary update so I'm guessing that messed things up or the more likely it was the developer who forgot to update the app. For sure I checked for app updates but nothing was available. I tried a restart of the surface but that didn't work either.
I knew I can reset the app but the reset deleted all the data which was about 30 paintings that my brother was working on - needless to say there's a lot of friction between us now.
Was there any other way of resolving this issue? Crashing or non functional app in anniversary update? Roll back wasn't an option.

A bit late now, but when you are re-installing Windows & you have several other hard drives connected, it's always advisable to remove/disconnect all of them except the one you are going to install Windows on (obviously).

Run the Error Checker on the other two drives to see if it detects & corrects any errors to the file system:
Right-click the drive and choose "Properties"
Click the "Tools" tab
Click "Check Now"
Tick both tick-boxes
Click "Start"

I ignored it (because my speakers were finally working again, which is a question for another day) and proceeded to move some documents from my original desktop folder to the now blank desktop, figuring it replaced my old one. The next time I started my computer I was back at my original desktop and now those files are gone. I have tried to perform a search but the files are not found. They contain some important file (taxes, resume, ect) and it would save me a lot of time if I could recover them.

I now have 4 drives on the PC, including the original drive which still won't boot properly and a additional mirrored. All drive are searched for wab and iaf files. Nothing unique found. Empty address books.

During a installation and not upgrade, is all data written over?
Is the data archives some where else that I might retrieve?

No data was backup or exported (I wish), as it was a OS crash.

I'll take any input.
