Harddrive problems RRS feed

    Hey

     

    I got a Hp whs and I decided to add some more Hdd. So i bought a 1tb harddrive and installed ít my homeserver. Everything worked fine for a week. Then i got a Device I/O error and when I rebooted the Home server I can't find my HDD. I've tried everything i can come to think off but it's like it cant sense it. It takes ages for the server to boot so i guess it finds the harddrive but doesn't know what to do with it.

    Anyone know what the problem maybe be or is it the Harddrive that has broken down?

  • The error that you got suggests that your hard drive has failed. the more information you can give us the better the chances that we can help you, but if you remove the drive from your server (shut the server down first) and connect it to another computer, what does that other computer show you?
