Hi
Possible reasons:
The CHKDSK utility incorrectly identifies and deletes in-use security descriptors in Windows 2000

The CHKDSK command incorrectly identifies certain security descriptors as not valid in Windows 2000

It may require a hotifx. Otherwise I'd check the file permissions on the server, and have a look at the server event logs,
