F Partition Gone For No Reason
Posted 04 July 2004 - 08:12 PM
However, the next day he turns on his XBOX, Evox is lagging really badly and there is an unusal amount of hard drive activity. Every click the hard drive makes, the Evox logo would move. Also, no of the links to programs on the F drive were valid anymore. I put in a disk that booted to boXplorer and all of the partitions C,E,X,Y, and Z were in-tact, but no information was being shown for F. So, I turned off "Use F drive" in the Evox configuration and it magicly started running fine again, no lagging.
This doesn't make any sense, because all the date on the other partitions is just fine, and why would copying a game to the E drive bring this on? The only thing I can think of is the hard drive might be going out, but it doesn't make any weird noises or show any of the other signs of being bad.
I would think the most likely explanation is that the F partition got corrupted somehow.
So has anyone had this happen, and is there an easy way to fix it? Or did my friend just pretty much loose his F drive and he is going to have to copy all his games onto it again? I know Team Ava is in the works of a Scandisk / Defrag program for the XBOX, but we have been hearing about this since almost 2 years ago...

I got a brand new WD 250GB. formatted drives and F was showing up as some ungodly high amount(778GB i believe). loaded evox. took forever to boot. everytime hdd clicked the evox screen would get brighter.
Turns out the hdd was bad. Try ftping to it while evox is loading. that seemed to jumpstart it and get the evox screen up.

just use slayers and REBUILD A RETAIL HDD
it must be a RETAIL one, even if your using a larger hdd, you must click RETIAL, this restores the x y and z partitions, of which mine were gone, this caused the slow loading etc
