W2K Server Storage-Disk Healty(At Risk)

By minhajlk ·
Hi,

We have a Pentinum III Server with mirrored disks, both 34.18GB with 3 partitions. First (C) partition holds the operating system Windows 2000 Server, second (E) partition holds the Data and the third partition (F) no data here (50GB).

Today when I checked the storage management, Partition E and F shows; Healthy (At Risk). All
NTFS volumes.

I would like to know what this means? Is something wrong with the disk? I ran a chkdsk still the message is there, what's wrong?

With regards,

Minhaj

Healthy (At Risk)
The Healthy (At Risk) status occurs when a dynamic volume is experiencing I/O errors caused by bad sectors on the physical disk. The disk remaps the bad sectors by using sectors reserved exclusively for remapping. If the errors are transient, you can use the Reactivate Disk command in Disk Management to return the volume to the Healthy status. If the At Risk status persists, your disk might be failing. Back up the data and replace the disk as soon as possible.

Here is a good place to look for future questions:
