'Server Storage' is not showing any used space, even though there is 1tb+ of data, data is not accessible RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi folks.

    I have recently 'updated' my WHS from the 30 day demo to the full version, and it has gone thru several updates over the last few nights, including PP3.

    Last night there was some kind of update, and now my 'Server Storage' does not show the correct data, as it shows there is not enough data on my HDD:

    Shared Folders: 46GB
    PC Backups: 7.5KB
    System: 20GB
    Free Space 2.1TB

    When I look at 'Shared Folders', there is easily over 1 TB of data when looking at the 'used space' field for all the shares. I can view the files in the share, but if I try and open the files, I get various errors (i.e. photo viewer says the files is corrupt, wmp encounters an error.

    I tried to look for updates (none), and used CHKDSK /f /x on C: and D: (C: requied a reboot), and still nothing.

    Can anyone help?

    It sounds to me like the data isn't there any more (only the tombstones).  You might want to try recovering the data manually.  See this FAQ post for assistance.  Also, you should run chkdsk /r on all of your drives (not just the primary).  See this FAQ for help with that.
