Samsung S2 external hard drive 1TB - Volume Image Error
by cyan0 - 2/5/11 10:02 AM
After i expanded the volume image that i had created with secretzone (its size was about 300GB and i added 10GB) i cannot mount it succesfully. The virtual drive always appears in Windows Explorer when i try to mount the volume, however its status in secretzone remains "not mounted" (only the letter of the virtual drive appears). The first time i tried to enter it after the expansion, i did it successfully and the problem started the moment i double-clicked on the folder where i kept all my files. I got an error message and Windows Explorer (Windows vista) was shut down. Now i cannot enter the volume at all and everytime i double-click on the virtual drive i get an error message that the file or volume is destroyed and cannot be read. According to the Samsung manuals, "expanding the volume image does not affect the existing data" and there is no warning about something that can go wrong. The physical hard drive is of course accessible. There was nore than 300GB free space when i did the expansion and i guess i can delete the volume image and regain its space. Is there a way however to recover any of that data. I would appreciate any help on this... Thank you!
