I have some of these external HD's running off USB2 cables.\n\nI moved two of them while they were running (not wise I'm sure)\nand I got an error later in the day to the affect...\n\nWindors- Delayed Write failed:\n\Device\HarddiskVolume2\$Mft\n\n....on two different Dell systems\n\nNo data appears to have been lost and after closing the dialog\nall seems OK... for now, anyway\n\nI'm thinking my moving the HD may have damaged some sectors\nand this is the reason for the error.\n\nAny thoughts?\n\nBTW: I upped my paging file. It was at the minimum. Not sure if this has\nanything to do with it. I'm wondering if there is some kind of buffer\nthat took the hit? Just could not write fast enough of vice versa??\n\nThanks!
