Hi guys,

Sent a message to "technoflop" on this issue, nothing back yet;

What I know:

I get a SCSI ID assigned upon bootup of these Ultra II SCSI's
Seagate's Seatools software "sees" my stripe set at a low level
Read/Write diagnostic short & long tests pass
Defrag Summary:

Volume Video2
Volume size 67.82 GB
Cluster size 4 KB
Used space 59.64 GB
Free space 8.18 GB
Percent free space 12 %

Volume fragmentation
Total fragmentation 0 %
File fragmentation 0 %
Free space fragmentation 0 %

File fragmentation
Total files 921
Average file size 67 MB
Total fragmented files 0
Total excess fragments 0
Average fragments per file 1.00

Pagefile fragmentation
Pagefile size 0 bytes
Total fragments 0

Folder fragmentation
Total folders 35
Fragmented folders 1
Excess folder fragments 0

Master File Table (MFT) fragmentation
Total MFT size 1 MB
MFT record count 970
Percent MFT in use 94 %
Total MFT fragments 3

XP Drive manager tags these drives as Missing or Failed
They do not reactivate (says to run chkdsk before trying this)
Cannot upgrade these to Dynamic volumes
Q: Is the 1MB MFT size too small ?
My other 36 GB dive has a MFT size of 15 MB with 12000 records and that drive has a drive letter

Q: What is the next logical action...don't want to LL format. I know the files are there because I could see them being moved during the dfrag. There are so many data recovery software companies and such a wide range of prices - any suggestions on recovering .tif, .jpg, .avi, .rzx files (I'm a Speed Razor 2000X user)

Thanks in advance,
