I mean in general. Could the disk itself be bad. Did someone fat finger a dd command or something and wipe out the partition table?


I don't have much experience with the H310 but if you want to check the disk (a good idea) :

Try checking the disk's SMART info. I don't trust raid controllers for this, altho I think some Dell iDRAC's & Percs can display a disks SMART info now.

I'd pull the disk, connected it to a normal sata port and then run partedmagic (it has a disk check tool, gsmartcontrol (linux), or crystal disk info (windows). I recommend the tool in partedmagic as it will highlight anything out of spec, crystaldisk info may do this i think

  • What I ended up doing (not sure if correct) is reimport the foreign disk. This worked. I then ran an e2fsck on it. I was seeing SMART errors before the import. I will have to check SMART again – Timothy Pulliam Jun 22 '17 at 16:19
  • ok glad you got it working! :-) hope you get all your data off – sirmonkey Jun 22 '17 at 18:24
