What Should I Do If I Lost My Music Due To Disk Partition Errors?
"I like listening to music at usual time. I put my favorite music together on computer D drive. I just wanted to listen to music to relax when I go home from work the other day, but I found that I couldn't open the file. I had tried many times but it always popped up the dialog box to show that the file or directory is corrupted and unreadable. What should I do? "
Have you ever saw an error message "file or directory is corrupted and unreadable" when using a USB drive in Windows? Disk partition errors make you unable to access data from USB disks or hard drive partitions, so the direct consequence of the error is file loss.
Hard disk is the main storage device for storing information in computer, but hard disk can not be used directly. Hard disk must be partitioned. The partitioned hard disk areas are disk partitions.
This error occurs if a file, folder, MFT (master file table), FAT (file allocation table) or USB drive is damaged for some reason.
So how to retrieve the missing files due to partition errors? First of all, you might think about fixing unreadable or inaccessible partitions and retrieving the data stored on them. So let's take a look at how to fix the partition errors.
Solution 1: Perform Chkdsk check and fix file system errors
Chkdsk (Chkdsk.exe) is a command-line tool provided by Windows for checking and fixing volume errors. This tool tries to fix any problems it finds, such as missing clusters, cross-linked files, directory errors, etc.
First, please click the Start button, and then click Run.
First, please click the Start button, and then click Run.
In the open box, type CMD and press Enter, and you will get a command prompt.
Then type CHKDSK / fg: and press Enter. G is the drive letter of the target partition. It can be F or other letters on your computer.
Type Y and press Enter to restart the computer to run disk check. You will receive a message that "Chkdsk cannot run because the volume in the use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts?” Then click OK, considering the number of files and folders, disk speed, system resources and volume capacity, it may take a long time to complete the process.
In some cases, Chkdsk can not work properly. Sometimes it may over-repair the project, causing the file difficult to recover. Therefore, if you want to recover data, it is recommended not to use this tool to fix errors.
So is it the truth that you can't retrieve the file if you can't fix the error? Not really. The solution that we are going to introduce to you next can easily solve your problem.
