Harddisk issues


Hi Friends,

My Linux file server recently was unresponsive. I have just got it back online by restarting and have been getting the following messages showing on screen.

All drives appear to be working ok. Can any one give some solutions.

you might want to test those blocks with "badblocks" // badblocks /dev/sdd

Agree with whansard, looks like bad blocks.

You can use smarttools (you may already have it installed, try 'smartclt' command) available from http://smartmontools.sourceforge.net.

When installed run the long test (smartctl -t long /dev/DEVNAME, short one from my experience is not useful and does not detect all errors.

An even better tool is 'Seatools' from Seagate. Don't let the brand deceive you, should work on any sata drive. http://www.seagate.com/support/downloads/seatools/. It is a windows tool but you can burn it to a cd, again run the long test. The advantage of Seatools is that it gives you the ability to have a go at repairing the drive and gives you a very thorough and easy to understand error report at the end.

Hope that helps, BashTin.

PS. I had similar issues hence the information.

Your data safe? If you have bad blocks any data in those blocks is lost as far as I understand. The disk tools will reallocate the bad blocks to other good areas of the drive. If the disk tools report problems it would be wise to make backups of your data straight away while you still can. If you run the tools successfully and repair the drive (assuming this is the issue of course) then run them again regularly at first to make sure no more bad blocks are appearing. If you get more new bad blocks your drive is telling you it is dying.

Good luck, BashTin.
