Warning Box: DELAYED WRITE FAILED
Posted on 2003-12-06
I have been getting multiple warning boxes all entilted: Delayed Write Failed.
The one currently on the screen has the following text:
" Windows was unable to save all the data for the file \Device\HarddiskVolume1\WINNT\System32\config\software.LOG. The data has been lost. This error may be caused by a failure of your computer hardware or network connection. Please try to save this file elswhere.
When I click OK, I get another Delayed Write Failed message, but the file name changes - for example the next message is the same as above, but the new address is: \Device\HarddiskVolume1\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Raxco\PerfectDisk\6.0\PerfectDisk.log
Click OK again and another same type message comes up mentioning Dr. Watson\user.dmp
Click again and the same thing at a different address. This will continue sometimes for at least 8 to 10 clicks at different addresses.
Since this has started the system has been opereating very erractially. I am using Windows 2000, with Service Pack 4.
Any suggestions as to the cause of this problem, and how to solve it will be greatly appreciated.
