Here is the kind of kernel panic I obtained.

 

 

I have a iMac with a 500Go internal HD and an external 500Go HD formatted with the Disk Utility.

The latter HD was partitioned in two partitions with the "Disk Utility": a 15Go partition onto which a basic OS X 10.6.4 system was installed with the installation disk, and a second empty partition of 480Go.  Moreover, on the 15Go partition, I installed a demo version of the "Speed Tools Pro" soft to proceed scans on the iMac internal HD. Indeed, I suspected problems with bad blocks or corrupted files on this internal drive because I was absolutely unable to proceed to backups of the internal HD with Time Machine on the second external partition because of systematic freezing during the process. Then, I booted on the external HD from which I launched the "Speed Tools Pro" soft to verify bad blocks on the internal HD. Then, crashes occur quite systematically after 75% of the scans. Moreover, because every complete backup (certain partial backups are possible) on the second external partition fails with Time Machine, I followed all of the verifications advised by "pondini" (http://pondini.org/TM/Troubleshooting.html) but without success.

Here is the report for one of these crashes involving  com.apple.iokitXXXX files and which may indicate driver problems with the external HD:

 

 

Thus, from what those problems of crashes during backups of the internal HD or scans/reading of files could be due?

Also, I am unable to make backups of my iMac.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8), Time Machine kernel panic driver
  • 2. Re: Kernel panic during scans/backups/reading from external or internal drive
    JacRb Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Hello baltwo

     

    => You will find the rest of the report just below after the complementary following informations:

     

    => I have some news: I located and identified the corrupted files which freezzed my iMac when copied/read/scanned...etc by softs such as Time Machine. Indeed, dragging on the backup drive the folders containing these damaged files, progressively, I identified them because the last (sub-)folder (on the backup drive) containing one of these files, and the corrupted file themselves, had, as modification date, the date of the backup: 'today, …'   Then, I deleted or repaired them with, for instance, the 'MP3 Scan+Repair' app in case of audio mp3 files. Other files I found such as certain .dmg or image files were deleted because of not importance. For pdf files, some of them were successfully opened by the Preview app and saved imperatively under a different name. It was a long process… Certainly, it exists an efficient UNIX set of commands using the Terminal app and doing the same.

     

    => Furthermore, after deleting these damaged files, I used a demo version of 'Data Rescue 3' in the 'Analysis' 'quick mode'. I scanned the internal iMac drive/partition I wanted to backup. It shown a very repetitive set of addresses of damaged blocks ("green curve of time analysis above the red line"). I must mention that the "Scan Volume for bad blocks" analysis I made with a demo version of  'SpeedTools Pro' installed on a partition of another external drive with a basic functional OSX system version of Snow Leopard produced a crash of the computer! Moreover, running 'Data Rescue 3' in the "Analysis" "medium mode" rather than in the "quick mode" produces a freeze (rather than a crash) of the computer as well!

     

    =>  Hence, the problem was not specific to Time Machine but affected any soft reading/scanning certain files or blocks. So, deleting the corrupted files did not solve the problem of freezing when proceeding to backups as I expected. Possibly, the corrupted files had allocation blocks common to the bad blocks of the driver and therefore the latter must be fixed or repaired.

     

    So, since I was quite sure it would not produce a crash/freeze of the iMac, I did a complete backup on my backup drive with the Terminal utility entering the following set of commands in my administrator account:

     

    > sudo cp -pRP /name_folder/* /Volumes/Backup_HD/name_folder

     

    where "name_folder" is the name of a folder at the root "/" of the internal (iMac) drive partition. I did not enter the command:

     

    > sudo cp -pRP /Volumes/* /Volumes/Backup_HD/Volumes

     

    because, even if the P option avoids to copy the targets of the symbol links, it did not apply for the specific symbolic link contained in the 'Volumes' folder and pointing toward the backup drive. I was faced in this particular case to a loop hole copying the copy of the copy … of the copy of the content of the backup drive…

     

    Unfortunately, another freeze of the iMac occurred again applying one of these commands and contrary to what I thought! Actually, It was due to another corrupted file I did not find previously, a pdf file, identified easily because the backup stopped at this file. To locate it in the folder hierarchical tree, I used again the procedure described just above when dragging the folders on the backup drive.

     

    Then, I did another backup process with the command line:

     

    > sudo cp -npRP /name_folder/* /Volumes/Backup_HD/name_folder

     

    (with option '-n' to not overwrite the already copied files on the backup drive and gain time)

     

    Then, with the 'Disk Utility' app, I did a  "zeroing"  of the 'free space' of the internal drive to fix the bad blocks; crossing fingers… that the internal hard drive of my iMac was not "hardware damaged" itself. Then, I launched 'Data Rescue 3' again and medium and deep analysis of the internal partition did not freeze my iMac contrary to the first runs. Actually, zeroing the free space certainly updated the G-LIST of the internal disc's map and fixed the bad blocks without, nevertheless, repairing them as the analysis graph given by 'Data Rescue 3' indicated:

     

     

    Graphe_Data_Rescue_3.png

     

    But also, the velocity and the reactivity of my iMac was recovered; a true revival!

     

    ==> Then, I installed 'SMARTReporter 2.7.3'  and perhaps, also 'smartmontools' in background (?).

     

    Recently, SMARTReports gave me the following report:

    Also, is it possible the physically repair the bad blocks with a specific soft/app?

    Launch Disk Utility and erase, reformat, and select the zero out data security option. AFAIK, that'll isolate bad blocks. Bad blocks can't be repaired, just excluded.

    What could be the UNIX set of commands for all these processes?

    diskutil is the Terminal command for all of Disk Utility's operations.
