HDD Changed to RAW File System?


Active Member
G'day, my server has restarted after a windows 7 update and one of my hdd, full of music :eek:, has stopped responding. In the manage menu it is saying D: file system is RAW.

What the hell! Could it be something in the update or is a coincidence and my drive is goosed?

If the latter - is there anyway of reparing the drive or at least rescuing my media?

Thanks :thumbsup:

Others may suggest better quicker solutions, but an option is to boot up using a hard drive recovery utility. These are linux based and should enable you to do a non-destructive no risk investigation.

FIXED! Did a system restore to this morning before an AVG Antivirus update and bingo! Needless to say I've ditched AVG and moved to Avast.
