    D:/ is not accessible.The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable.

    musicman

      I have a raid 0 array. The D:/ drive gets this message D:/ is not accessible.The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable. I did chkdsk D:/r. It says the drive is healthy.. array optimal and all drives are working .I can access data if I open a program and open a recent file that is on that drive. Everytime I start the computer it wants to scan D drive. Can I fix this?

          Looks like autorun-type virus infection. Is D; driver accessible by dir commands from command line interface?

            I scanned the drive with malwarebytes and it found nothing, although a bunch of fatal erreor come up with unreadable sectors in the Web 2 console.

            I can access data on the drive if I open a program and open a recent file that was on the D drive.CrystalDisk does not find the drive. Device manager says all drives are working.

            The web 2 console says the predictive failure is 0 and that the drive and raid array is healthy/optomal. I tried chkdsk D:/f and r . That also finds the unreadable sectors but does not repair anything.

             

            I looked up the auto run virus info and I got these instructions

              Looks like I fixed it! The computer got to the point where it was freezing on the startup screen. So I had to boot from the disk. Then did a repair windows.It started up but still wanted to scan D which I cancelled. Then did a system restore to a week ago. It restarted but said system restore did not work. When I clicked to open the D drive though it opened with all of the files. I will back up immediately.

              Thanks for your help.
