Windows 2000 server - The File or directory is corrupted and unreadable
Posted on 2004-11-07
I was getting this message "The File or directory is corrupted and unreadable" frequently in one of the partitions. I run the chkdsk utilty and there were errors fixed by chkdsk, when reviewing the event viewer I could see a lot of this kind of messages:
The multi-sector header signature in file 0xd19 is incorrect...
Deleting corrupt file record segment 3353...
After these messages I got a lot of this too:
Deleting orphan file record segment 4884...
When I reviewed I lost a lot of files and a lot of file were moved to the folder d:\found.000\ I could recover some information from them.
The chkdsk utility didn't detect any bad sector in the HD.
Now after working with my backup and fix everything I'm getting this error again. The antivirus didn't detect anything..
Do you know what's happening? Is it a new kind of virus? my HD is about the fail?
