Which drive?


M

Mark

Event Viewer gives me an error referring to my SCSI adapter and refers to
devices "\Device\Harddisk1\DR1" and "\Device\Harddisk2\DR2".
How do I find out which drives these are?

I've 2 hard disks, a DVD-ROM, and a CDRW on the SCSI adaptor.

Mark,

Take a look at the following article.

Any one?

OK, in Disk Management, are these the drives it calls Disk 1 and Disk 2?

Mark,

I have seen these paths end with three things after Harddisk#\, DR#, Partition# and FT#. DR is simply an abbreviation for
Drive and should match the Harddisk# entry in the path before it. Partition# indicates the partion on that drive and FT#,
where FT is an abbreviation for Fault Tolerance set, indicates the Fault Talerance set the drive belongs to. Since your is
simply "\Device\Harddisk1\DR1" and "\Device\Harddisk2\DR2" both the Harddisk# and DR# represent the same as the
Disk # you see in Disk Management.

I hope this clears it up a little.

It does, I was wondering about those endings.
Thanks again.
