SATA HDD or driver problem? RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    I have tried to build a home server and am very frustrated.  I used a new ASUS A8V-X MB, which has 4 SATA slots.  I used this MB so that I could use a 939 CPU and RAM that I had already.  Each of the SATA slots has a 1TB WD greenpower drive plugged in.  WHS installed, and I have updated every driver that I can.  The server functions well and connects to the internet fine. But I cannot do a backup from either home computer.  One of them crashes the server and the other just fails.  If I try to copy a large library of MP3s, it fails at a random point, as few as 2GB or as many as 15GB into the copy.

     

    Checkdisk runs fine, and the server functions well unless I am trying to copy large amounts of data to it.  The event viewer has lots of windows search service 3013 errors.  At this point, I am ready to take the whole system apart and buy a new motherboard and CPU.  Is there anyone out there who has any suggestions?

    Have you looked at the logs on the server?  )C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows Home Server\logs)

    Maybe the NIC.  Do you have 2K3 drivers for it?

    And then chkdisk.c_fs_6.log which only contains "The type of the file system is NTFS"

     

     

    The NIC driver is updated and I can use the internet well, actually am typing on the server now...?
