The partition that I've been using for my c drive for wine is always being corrupt. The c drive is its own 10 gig HDD, which i formatted with mke2fs and installed HL etc on there, but after a while itll be corrupt and ill have to fix it with fsck but then that just gives HL heaps of errors because of loss of files, etc.
I've been thinking maybe this is caused because HL doesn't like the ext2 filesystem? So I've been trying to remove this entire partition then re-creating it with a Fat32 FS, or even just formatting it. I can't seem to do it under linux for some reason (I'll delete the partition with fdisk, then recreate it and everything is still on the drive!! WTF?!) and i still can't seem to get the mkdosfs command to work. So I've booted into XP and when i try to format the partition it fails right at the end....and when i try with Partition Magic 7 i get the error number of 4 and description: Bad argument/parameter...
ARGH! no matter what i do i can't seem to format this drive!!!
any idea's....and maybe idea's as to what is really causing this?
And no, the corruption isn't due to a possibly screwed hdd as this is the second one ive tried...same thing has happened to both (apart from this formatting problem..)
