Cowabanga Dude(do)

Question: Cowabanga Dude(do)

First of all I want to say that I appreciate all the help I have received from MajorGeeks in the past. Thank you.


Now, down to business. First of all the problem is not on this computer it is on my other house computer. Through a recent download we ended up picking up some malware called Cowabanga, Deluxe Communication .


Here is what I have done to get rid of this. Each folder came with an uninstall so I tried that. I also tried to manually delete all folders but it seems that it only morphs itself in other folders.

It has disabled my internet which forces me to use this other computer.


I ran HJT and have attached it


What can I do to get rid of this? Please help.:crybaby

Preferred Solution: Cowabanga Dude(do)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Question: Cowabanga by OIN

First off, Thanks alot for the support. I really appreciate what you guys do.

Heres the deal.. I have Scanned with Norton Antivirus/Ad-aware & Spybot several times and have eliminated everything it would allow. The thing with Norton is, even if it finds something it usually can't delete is (even in safe mode, atleast for me). I think everything is pretty much taken care of except for this program called Cowabanga. I looked it up in google and most of the advice reccommended creating a hijackthis log. So here tiz. Thanks again

Greetings! This is my first post on a forum, so I apologize for newbie-ness!
I have a recurring problem with Cowabanga and it's endless spawn. I have tried many different methods, first being formatting my hard drive and starting with a fresh OS ... no good. Then I found Major Geeks! So here I am. I have gone through steps 1-7, and attached are logs from AdAware, SpybotS&D, and Panda.
This computer is using WinME, if that helps.
I have installed a firewall (Sygate) and it's still finding wuauclt.exe after all the fixes so far. That, among others, are by-products of the Cowabanga. Many of these have been removed by your processes, but I fear there's more lurking.
Please help!
 

Answer:Cowabanga won't die

Welcome to Majorgeeks!

I know you said you went thru steps 1 thru 7 but you did not follow the directions in there. We don't ask for Ad-Aware or Spybot logs. They are not typically needed. But we did ask for:

- CounterSpy log
- Bitdefender log (which must be run before PandaActiveScan)
- and a HijackThis log in step 7.

Please follow our standard cleaning procedures which are necessary for us to provide you support. Also there are steps included for installing, running, and posting HijackThis logs as attachments.

I have this virus that I can't get rid of. Norton keeps popping up saying I have infected files, but it can't access the file or do anything. I've tried adaware, kept finding and deleting, files came back. Used "SpyHunter", and the files were deleted I guess, adaware stopped coming up with anything, thought it was fixed till norton popped up telling me there were infected files.

I'm well aware that I installed a file that had a trojan/virus infected in it and it spread onto my computer. I've located it to a Cowabanga folder which I can't delete and can't seem to find any items in but its locked as read only.

I've scanned with:
CounterSpy
Norton 05 w/ updates
Housecall online ---> gave me ADW_PURITYSCA.Y as unfixable
Spybot Search and Destroy
Adaware-SE
-and ran CleanUp!

CounterSpy, Norton, and I believe Adawareall found the same thing: winubg32.dll as the infected file. Basically i'm just getting a lot of popups throughout the day, and I think a small decrease in performance.


My windows updates are scheduled every morning to download and install at 3:00AM. I've got the Windows Firewall up (I realize I should be getting a better firewall than this and I am looking into it).

Computer Specs as follows:
homebuilt
64 3500+
2gb Ram
raptor 10,000 rpm hd as D:\ - Windows is installed on this one
Seagate 80gb 7,200 rpm as C:\
256 mb x800 pro agp8x
audigy 2

When reading the first post on how to post on here, it said to put HijackThis on the C:\ but I wasn't sure if it just said C:\ because that's usually where windows is installed to. Since windows is install on my D:\ I extracted HijackThis to D:\HJT

It kept giving me an MS-DOS window saying, Bad command or file name C:\program files\%systemdrive%\Combofix> Then another box with an X in it saying %systemroot%\system32\cmd.exe, Cannot find file %systemroot%\system32\cmd.exe (or one of its components). Make sure the path & file name are correct & that all required libraries are available. I deleted its folder and desktop icon & reinstalled it to no avail. I got the samething when I tried to execute it again. I had all of my spyware from aol & my Norton off too like I was told to do by spykiller. I have no firewall either. He told me I might be better off formating & reinstalling windows98. He also told me I might try spybot.

I read this post: linked here and started down the road of getting the reports etc. but now I could use a little help in determining which additional files need to be deleted.

I tried using spy bot and it seemed to take remove everything, but some items just cam back with every reboot. I also did several Symantec scans, but those missed a bunch of things found by Active scan. I have run the scans that were recomended in this post since it seems that the primary problem is the same program. The "Cowabanga" program keeps comming up again and again.

These are the results of the three recomended scans, any help with determinging how to proceed from here would be great:

Hello, I have read the prepartory hijackthis introductory post and I am posting this log. I have a xp sp2 pc with Norton antivirus and microsoft antispyware. Before the discovery of malware I had on it with scans performed weekly but without realtime protection(which i regret). Then a couple weeks ago I had alot obvious spyware-originating popups. Within the last week, there were several trojan and downloader virus notifications found by norton, then I noticed in add/remove programs the "Cowabanga by OIN" program. I installed other antivirus and antispyware and boot-scanned with them. I did permanently delete most of those viruses found by them(which i hope wasnt a mistake to do ) After all the scans, i booted up in safe mode with sytem restore turned off, then ran the hijackthis scan-and-log.I would greatly appreciate a review of this hijackthis log. I am already grateful so far for all of the people who invest in this board, your work help a lot of us!so, without further ado, if i have given enough background info, I will post the hijackthis log:Logfile of HijackThis v1.99.1Scan saved at 1:03:09 PM, on 8/2/2006Platform: Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 SP2 (6.00.2900.2180)Running processes:C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS ...

Answer:Infected With Yazzle Cowabanga By Oin

Welcome to the Bleeping Computer forum. We are currently studying your log and will have instructions for you shortly. Thank you for your patience.

Please post a new HijackThis log done in normal mode not safe mode. In safe mode, some services/files are not loaded so viruses could be hiding in them. Always do the HijackThis log in normal mode.

Based on a quick look at your log, you have two antivirus programs. Please read information below.
Avast as indicated in log
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [avast!] C:\PROGRA~1\ALWILS~1\Avast4\ashDisp.exe
Norton Antivirus as indicated by you and in the log
O23 - Service: Norton AntiVirus Client (Norton AntiVirus Server) - Symantec Corporation - C:\Program Files\NavNT\rtvscan.exe
There are basically two types of antivirus programs:
On-Access and On-Demand

On-Access Scanners
As the name implies, it runs in the background all the time the PC is turned on and running. The main function of an on-access scanner is to monitor activity on your machine.

On-Demand Scanners
As the name implies, are scanners that only run when you ask them to.
Such as:
Online Scans and scanners that run on your machine but are not actively scanning your machine

Antivirus programs take up an enormous amount of your computer's resources when they are actively scanning your computer. Having two antivirus programs running at the same time can cause your computer to run very slow, become unstable and even, in r... Read more

Question: Dude

Ok so this happened on my old XP machine, and just recently on this Vista one.

As far as i can tell, it is harmless, and i have barely noticed it, but it is a little frustrating.
All it is, is some virus or something. All that happens is some guys voice (maybe about 20 year) comes on the speakers saying "dude" in a weird sort of way. It happened quite a bit on my XP machine, but only once on this one. I looked on the internet and found nothing, and I am confused as to what it is.

Its not a huge issue, I can survive with it for now (until i reinstall) but i wanna know wtf is with it.

Hey chaps,
So, I?ve ran through all your Read & run First steps, and ran CCleaner... as far as I can tell 2 problems remain.
The first is on starting up IE: on start up of my pc the following virus warning appears (see 1st screen shot). AVG detects it and asks if I want to heal or quarantine, I have done both.
Second, is the most frustrating, certain web sites that I visit, (non-porn) do this really annoying thing, I get automatically re-directed to a dell search page, I run a dell PC and at the top of the page it says: Sorry, we couldn't find http://ad.uk.doubleclick.net/adi/N3784.AND/B2258036;sz. Here are some related websites: (2nd screen shot was too big to post, should i e-mail?)
I also run a registered copy of Spyware Detector, this obviously hasn't detected it.
Plus, when I opened up majorgeeks.com the following message appeared. (See 3rd screen shot)
Can you help, please?
 

Answer:What next dude?

Hi

you'll need to attach the logs requested from the Read Me guide.




When you return to make your next post, make sure you attach the following logs and that you have run these scans in the following order too:
CounterSpy
AVG Antispyware log - ONLY IF NEEDED you were not able to run CounterSpy
Bitdefender - from step 6
Panda Scan - from step 6
runkeys.txt - the log from GetRunKey.bat
newfiles.txt - the log from ShowNew.bat
HijackThis

NOTE: You can only attach 3 files in a single message so it will require that you use two messages to attach all of these logs!

I live in Ireland!

I have tried to purchase a MS Surface RT. I have tried every possibility!

The only possible way that I can buy one legally, is to buy it in the UK & have to shipped to someone in Northern Ireland (Part of the UK. A real Irishman would NEVER do this. I would have to cross the border into NI).

I talked to my Electronics retailer here that has been in business for over 50 years! I buy all my electronics there.

He told me that the only way he cold get them is to buy a skid load. He says he could not invest that kind of money at the expense of his general inventory!

I have contacted the Irish office of Microsoft. All they do is transfer the call to the UK MS Website. I can fill in the order for the Surface, but at the check out, it tells me they CAN NOT ship to the IRSH REPUBLIC!!

Why in HELL was I transferred to THE UK??

I have contacted all the Electronic retailers in Ireland & no one has them!

PC World told me I had to order them online! But they didn't have any idea where!!

WHAT KIND OF SO-CALLED "WORLD WIDE COMPANY" would deliberately boycott A WORLD LEADING COUNTRY!!

Now you see what us Americans often go through when foreign companies make products, such as Nintendo, Samsung, etc, and we have to wait behind for availability.

I'm quote certain Microsoft wouldn't boycott a "world leading country". They haven't been on the market very long, so my suggestion would be to go to the largest electronics retailer, either in person or online and find one there. If the one who went to isn't a nationwide chain, then they may not be able to purchase them as easily as the major retailers.

I got a client where we gave him a fresh install of Windows Xp Pro Sp2 (Legit Copy + Updates)

This guy installs a chase game, however when it comes to trying to play it, he gets an error message saying that he needs OpenGL1.1 or greater to play it.

I found an OpenGL1.1 on the microsoft website. However think this is mainly for Windows 95 / NT Platforms as it did not do any thing.

I have re-installed the video card drivers (onboard NVIDIA GeForce 6100 GPU on a Gigabyte GA-K8N51GMF-9 SKT 939 Motherboard). Please note that these are the video card drivers from Gigabyte's Website. I have fround that the nVidia Drivers from the nVidia's website does not what to have any thing do with it.

It's currently using Direct X 9.0c (however I have not re-installed that yet)

I have tried looking at the OpenGL.org site. However the only download I can seem to find points back to the same one from Microsoft that I mensioned earlier.
However the website is talking about OpenGL 2.0. There is a lot of blurb on what it does, but no downloads for it.

Any other suggestions on where I can download Open GL 1.1 or greater?

Thank you.

Answer:DUDE! Where's My OpenGL?!?!

day one of my problems the computer froze up would do nothing so I attempted to reboot and it would not allow me to shut down so I powered off with the power button, it worked for most of that day
then later either that day or the next it froze up again and I was able to reboot, then just yesterday I set the laptop down softly and it shut off this happened twice.
The second time it would not boot, the power led would come on for about 4 seconds, and the battery light would flash about every 3 seconds. I tried taking the battery out and just leaving the power cord plugged in and it worked so I left it that way for some time, later in the day I put the battery back in just because I did not like leaving the battery out and having an opening for dust etc. to get in.
I set it down awhile later and again it shut and hasn't come back on. I still get the power light for 4 secs, and and then battery light flash every 3 or 4 secs. I am a little knowledgeable about computers so I took it apart and I don't see anything wrong inside.
I reset the CMOS just for fun and did a little cursing, then tried to pray, and here I am begging for help from you kind folks....

I'm running vista (32bit) on an Acer 5310 service pack 2 laptop. I did a safe boot two days ago because of a glitch with IE (a warning saying this script can no longer be run on this page or something such) I've since rebooted in normal mode(I've gone though F8 to do this three times now) to find that the Vista orb has been replaced by the old rectagle style.

So I've got this Gateway GT4009. That's a good PC, right? I got it for free out of a school that closed.

I'm a little stressed out because the problems I'm having are not consistent. When I first started the computer, it went past the XP spash screen and then it said to press ctrl+alt+delete. BUT before I could do anything it restarted and it did it again then restarted and so on.

So I decided to reinstall XP. It made it halfway through the NTFS format and then it restarted and loaded to the infamous "blue screen of death" and it had a stop code of 0x0000004e, which according to this article is bad ram, so i replaced the ram stick. Then it went to setup. Then it restarted. Then I said screw it, I'm going to ask for help.

Now I've read that this restarting happens for 3 different reasons: 1) OS problems. (which we know it can't be since I'm booting from CD) 2) a hot CPU or 3) a bad power supply. I don't have a replacement power supply handy, so I want to test the CPU heat. How do I know how hot my CPU is and what exactly IS too hot?

Answer:Help a Mac dude understand PC.

Next time before you reinstall, try safe mode (press F8 at startup).

Dunno about what constitutes too hot, but when you boot, you can get into the BIOS (there's a key you have to press right after you power on your PC - maybe Del, maybe F10, don't know what it is for Gateway PC's). Then just navigate around the menu and you're likely to find your CPU temperature.

I'm new to using forums. Running Windows XP SP2Working on a friends Dell Dimension 5150. First it would not turn on, did some poking around and looked like the computer had been dropped. The ram had disconnected, fixed that Starting cleaning up the thing (history, viruses, malware all that fun stuff) When I went to reboot it, it seems XP was corrupted. The taskbar had reverted to what windows 2000 task bars looked like. Yet it was below the viewing space. No start button at all up able to drag the task bar to make it larger. Can't open IE. The only I can make the computer function is through Task Manager. Some areas of Concern I have is...When I boot the computer it informs me that the Floppy Drive is not found F1 to continue F2 to try again. After I get past the Floppy seek bios pops up with 3 options...1) Windows NT 6.X2) Windows NT 5.x3)GRUB4DOS (it defaults to this option, when I select 1 or 3 it tries to boot but doesn't.)Also at one point in the booting process I'm prompted with the text {{{{ " Urr! wee..."}}}} <<<<< Just like that.

My goal is to mod my Dell until it's no longer recognizable as such.

Here's a summary of my question:
Which should I buy first: a CPU fan, or a mobo/PSU combination? In other words, which is more important: keeping my CPU below 55&deg; C or being able to plug the mobo into the front panel USB, power switch?

Here are the details:
I am tweaking the heck out of my Dell Dimension 2350 Intel P4 1.8 GHz 845GL system. My father got it for me two years ago because it was really cheap, and he thought it would be a good place to start and I could upgrade later. The thought was, at least it's an ATX with a P4, and my old Wintel system wasn't upgradeable to a P4 at all. Unfortunately, when I got it and opened it up, I found I couldn't add another HDD because there's no place for it! I was not aware of Dell's lockbox/proprietary policies before I got it. Needless to say, this is really annoying!

So, I've been putting a lot of effort lately into upgrading, modding, and doing all I can to negate the warranty! But I have a predicament right now, and that is, I've put myself in a place where I cannot just stop where I am. But I'm overbudget on my upgrades for this month, but I've ended up with a PC in a sort of a "transitional phase" and I need to know: what's the most important step to take next, if I can only do one thing?

My first step was to replace the graphics card and disable onboard graphics (and I... Read more

Answer:Dude, you're killing your Dell!

Update: This, and other pages led me to think the PSU is proprietary. But my mobo doesn't have that other 6-pin dealio that the older Dells had. It looks like a standard ATX PSU. And if you look at the specs for these knockoffs, you'll see it's 20-pin ATX. Does anyone know for sure? A new PSU would almost cost more than a mobo!

I'm really hoping someone can help me with this because it's driving me nuts.

I have 2 computers hooked up to a router, to share the internet connection.

Recently one of the computers got a really bad virus, so I formatted the hard drive. I decided to format the other computer's hard drive as well, as long as I was at it. After the formats, both computers has intermittent problems connecting to the web. They'd connect, then lose the connection for a while, then connect, etc. I figured the router was shot, since I was already on my second one and I know those things don't last forever. I went out and got a new router and that one seemed to do the trick- for a while anyhow. Now I'm back to the same problem of both computers occasionally losing their connectivity. If I wait a while it comes back, but 5 minutes can be an eternity where you're trying to do stuff online.

Now that I have a new router and I'm still having problems- I figure it must have something to do with my settings. I've turned OFF windows firewall and the firewall in PC-Cillin, but the problem still persists. Beyond turning off the firewall however, I'm afraid I don't know much about what might be causing my computers to have connectivity problems.

Can anyone out there shed some light on which settings I might change in order to maintain my connection? Possibly something in Windows security center, but there's so much stuff in there that I'm af... Read more

Hi, I have the same/similar problem as dude 1234. Firefox using 100% CPUI didnt want to steal his post so I made my own.I have doing a bit of research on different things for browsers, this amongst them. (Well I dont know that its the browser actually).Every now and then my computer seems to just grind away, fans rev to their limit, windows wont open and the whole system drags for ages then to a total stop.It seems as though it is a memory problem, but having read that post, I wondered if it was my browser? I have a Pentium 4 CPU 3.00 Ghz 1.5GB of RAM. My computer doesnt always play up like that but it has its moments.The easiest way to get past it is to close everything and then restart F/F, this does cure it but is really inconvenient if I have lots of windows open.Can I do anything to cure this phenomenon please?

Answer:Same as dude 1234 CPU Grinding away at 100%?

Well your computer is better than mine and, anyway, I have investigated and determined its not a processor or memory problem. Try using Opera browser and see if you think that eliminated the problem. I'd be interested to know."Browser" is the name of the software you use to download and display web material. Examples of browsers are:- Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, Chrome.In case you are not familiar with the term "software", it means a computer program. Computers have hardware (all the electronic bits), and software (all the instructions that are given to the hardware to make it do something useful). My apologies if I have over-simplified this, but it sounded like you needed to know.

And yes, the physical drive is there, and I am pretty sure no one has opened my computer and disconnected it or something.

Dude, where's my drive?

I was trying to remote from my desktop at home to my work laptop. I changed the workgroup on my laptop to match my workgroup at home. But being that the laptop is a secured login its not accepting my password now, and just tells me "The system could not log you on. Make sure you User name and domain are correct, then type your password again." Ummm so that's special. I don't know any of the other admin account user names or passwords but I am able to see it on my network. I don't know if there's any way for me to fix the problem myself without having to confess my stupidity to the powers that be. If anyone has any helpful advice it would be much appreciated.

Answer:Dude I think I just bricked my work laptop

At the login screen press ctrl+alt+del (you may have to press it twice) and it should present you with the old style login. From there you should be able to choose the domain you are logging into.

If that does not work, you should probably contact your IT dept. and let them fix it.

Answer:[DUDE] Change my HDD stock for SSD T420

Welcome to the forum.
 
Yes you can replace the 9.5mm thick HDD with a 7mm thick SSD. The thinner SSD will fit OK inside the metal cage that now holds the HDD and the rubber rails will hold everything in place inside the ThinkPad. I have done this before without any problems.

Please see if you can find dude.exe and run it through VirusTotal:

I had wrote a thread amonth ago under the title "Where is my disc space???". The suggestions were all helpful, but they were only about retrieving lost files and such. I've finally settled into the mind set that my treasures are gone, (photos, videos, music, ect ) but I thought that when you do a full system restore that it not only wipes out all the old stuff but also clears up or clears out space. I'm down to about a 150 to 175mb of space which leaves 0% of memory. I don't know where my space went or how to get it back. I have the minimum programs and such. I have nothing to throw out. Do I have to get back all of the old files to go through those and delete what I can? HELP! S.O.S. May day. May Day. Man Down.

Answer:Dude Where's My Disk Space part 2

"Memory" is built into the machine and stays the same. It has nothing to do with disk space.

If you are low on disk space, you need to find out what is using it and remove anything unneeded, or get a larger drive.

You can explore the space usage with:

Windows 7
x64 bit
Retail version
Hardware is all new except for the video card, which was functioning fine last week (never had a BSOD error before this new setup)
I have reinstalled the OS as off 11/1/2011 (after getting tons of blue screens, i installed a 2nd time)
CPU: AMD Phenom (tm) II X6 1035T Processor 2.60 GHz
Video Card: Radeon HD 5750
Motherboard: ASUS M5A97
PSU: Corsair GS600 (600w)

Homebuilt system.

I haven't updated the BIOS or any drivers past what I received on the motherboard install disk. The motherboard is new out of the box as is the RAM, CPU (and heat sync), and PSU.

I installed win 7 initially and after installing MB driver updates, etc..started to go through programs (flash, java, etc...) and began getting a lot of blue screens of various kinds. I narrowed it down I thought to a driver issue with my video card. Apparently the atikmdag.sys file that comes with catalyst screws up win 7 computers? I was careful not to install the video care drivers the 2nd install of 7 and I got no BSOD errors till I did. Having said that, all my errors seem to be unrelated to my video card, examples: "bad_pool_header" and "system_service_exception".. I'm a bit stuck. Also my desktop window manager has crashed a couple times.

Thanks for any help..

Answer:[SOLVED] BSOD - (out of date) tech. dude needs help

Hi -

There were 8 BSOD dump files, 1 was -0- bytes (indicates catastrophic, sudden hardware failure). The remaining 7 don't offer us much as they seem to point everywhere, but nowhere. ATI video, Networking (tcpip.sys), memory, security descriptors, etc...

I did find entries like this in Event Viewer -

Code:
{Registry Hive Recovered} Registry hive (file): '\??\Volume{625b9dda-049f-11e

was corrupted and it has been recovered. Some data might have been lost.
Registry hive corruption may be HDD failure.

Just last night I received a message from a friend with the caption 'WTF DUDE?' and a link. Dumbly I opened it and chrome auto downloaded 'Image.scr'. I don't remember exactly whether or not I executed it but shortly after I found that my steam account had messaged everyone in my friends list the same message. I quickly located the file and deleted it, and emptied my bin, cleared all my cookies and history on my browser, etc. I then boot up my PC in safe mode, look for any of the listed .scr infections posted of the steam forums but found none. I can't completely recall anything strange going on either after that. I then restarted and scanned my computer with Malwarebytes, Superantispyware, and Avast. Only Supersantispyware found three threats which were cookies. It took action and still I can't completely seem to know whether or not i'm infected with the virus. Now I am here on this forum without experience in anything related to viruses, so I have no clue what i'm searching for. I'm dying to know, again, whether or not i'm infected.

hi . i recently bought this new mother board by Asus, P5RD1-V. the problem is that when i try to install windows xp on my SATA HD, after the initial stage during which the setup copies all the drivers and then gives that option " to install windows XP press enter" plus one or two other options, when i press enter i get this massage that says " setup didnt find any hard drives installed on your system. check to see if any HD is installed .... " and then it goes on to say things like check your drive configuration or the drive health and things like that. all this when at the the bootup it does show the hard drive connected at SATA port 1. !! ? i run seagate diagnostic tool on it and it showes the drive as perfectly healthy. i dont know why is it doing it. the hard disk is spanking brand new. the same goes for the 120GB WD SATA. the interesting thing it has no issue with the good old IDE HD's. i connected my old maxtor IDE hard drive and the setup ran as smooth as it can get. i dont know why setup isent detecting the SATA HD. is it the board or is it somthing else. any ideas !

We have a PC which we use for our SBS 2003 R2 Server. It's an entry level server with 3 PC connected to it.
Specs are Intel Core2Duo E8400, 4Gb DDR II Ram, 2x SATA 160Gb Hard Drive (Software Raid for OS), 2x 1Tb Hard Drive (Raid via Adaptec Adaptec 1220SA), 1x 1TB Hard Drive for nightly back up.

This PC is left on 24/7. However every 6-8 weeks, the data from the 2x 1TB Hard Drives disappears. We will go into MY COMPUTER, we can still see the RAIDed Volume. However when we open up the volume, there is no data on the volume. We have found that if we restart the server, the data is back. During the restart, i notice that the RAID controller card is reporting to me that the volume is OPTIMAL.

This morning, we had this happen for the 3rd time, and it's getting a little annoying with the little mirror heart attack that you get finding that your data has gone walkies.

We are using your Adaptec Utility to monintor the RAID. The RAID is set up as a RAID1 (or Drive Mirror).

Any advice on what could be going wrong and what steps me can take to resolve the issue.

Answer:DUDE! Where's My RAID Data? Adaptec AAR-1220SA

Have you checked device manager when the data on the volume isn't found? It could possibly be the RAID controller itself adn Windows would report that the device is failing when you can't find the files. Also does the card report that the volume is optimal everytime or only when it fails the previous time?

I would say start with a driver reinstall/update first and go from there. I'm assuming your software RAID running 2003 is 100&#37;?
