Validate returns over 2000 corrupted files, but they seem OK
« on: August 29, 2017, 11:26:35 am »
Hi,

I've run validate, but it reported over 2000 files being corrupted!
I have CRC for some of the files, so I did a random check (3 files) and the CRC matched.

Are they truly corrupted? is it that time-stamp thing? Why over 2000 though?

I'd appreciate the help, I'm concerned for my data.

Thanks,


Code: [Select]
The validation process is reporting 1 new, 0 changed, 0 deleted, and 2797 corrupted files!Sample corrupted file:
Code: [Select]

Typically, this is due to an anti-virus or other protection software intruding.
Please configure your anti-virus and other real-time scanning programs to ignore the RAID-F service's activities.

I only have MS security essentials, how exactly am I suppose to configure it to ignore RAID-F?

As in exclude processes, or exclude files (if I do that, then how do I secure myself)?

EDIT: should I touch the files, or do force resync, then do verify to ensure raid is good?

You will have to google on how to do it.
You have to configure it to ignore the RAID-F service process.

You could. I would recommend recomputing the parity anew. It will likely be much faster.

Thanks Brahim,

Which option should I go for? Keep in mind I have about 8TB worth of data (3 DDU, 1 PPU)
Code: [Select]
Parity data detected on the PPU drive(s).
Do you want to re-initialize using that data?
Warning: choose "yes" only if the parity data is valid!

The parity is assumed to not be valid. So, choose no.

Thanks Brahim!

is there an app that helps create CRC for all the files & folders?
I found RapidCRC but it is not really practical :\

Any suggestions?

You can use fsumfrontend here:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/fsumfe/

It's old but it works well and can do all kinds of hash types :)
