Cannot write to Drive C error
Posted on 1998-01-21
Using a scheduling program I have several utilities that run during the night. At 12:01 AM Norton Image runs. At 12:02 Norton Anti Virus 2.0 completes a full scan. At 12:20 Norton System Doctor (2.0) runs.
Once or twice a week I will awake to find the dreaded blue screen with the error message that drive C cannot be written to. I end up needing to reboot the system. I checked and found that based on time/date stamps that image was running properly. A check of the logs for anti virus indicated that scans had not been completed. This led me to believe the AV was the culprit. I disabled that from running but still got the occasional error. So I enabled AV and disabled System Doctor. I still get the errors. This now has me baffled. I do NOT get this error during normal use. I have run both AV and NSD manually with no trouble (although as I noted this is NOT an every night problem). Nothing else runs other than these programs.
I have run a through check of the drive surface, file intergrity, etc. No issues. I have a FIC PA-2007 motherboard with 64 megs of DRAM, STealth 3D video card, SB Awe64 Value sound card, USR 56K modem, Maxtor 4.3 HD and Maxtor 1.2 HD. The Maxtor 4.3 is the master and is partitioned into C, F and E. I am NOT using any screen savers.
