"Unsupported File Structure"


N

Nisko

I just ran a disk analysis program on four of my drives and, according
to the program, all four have an "unsupported file structure." The
file structure should be NTFS and I'm running Windows XP Pro. I don't
have any problems that I know of with any of the drives - but I would
like to know if there's a way to fix this problem (without
reformatting, of course). Thank you.........

Perhaps your "Disk Analysis" program lies . . . What
program was it?

I'd get a second opinion. There may be nothing wrong.

In the future - if necessary - please choose to crosspost as opposed to
the multiposting you have done. When cross-posting, you post the SAME
message in many groups - but those with newsreaders (who are
answering your questions usually) will see your message only unread
once - after they read it will show as read in all groups posted. Not to
mention that the responders can also answer you in all groups (or just
one if they choose to do so) so that everyone can see the assistance in
all groups at once - as opposed to seeing some answers in one group
and some more in another. This also benefits you. You can usually go
back and check your responses in ONE place - instead of the many
you posted it in.

I will repeat my answer so the threads are 'synched' up until now...

Well.. The issue I see with your description is all you told us was that you
ran a "disk analysis program" that told you that you have an "
Unsupported File Structure" --> You did not tell us what the application
was that did the disk analysis --> and yes, that would be important. =)

Sorry about not cross-posting. It was an afterthought to post to more
than one group.

I'd guess the software doesn't support NTFS.
Yes, you're right - I checked with the manufacturer. Do you know
where I can get a good (free, if possible) hard drive analysis
program? Thanks.........

Couldn't find one for Toshiba - and their tech support person said
they don't have one.

Pop the drive out to read the manufacturer label.
