Corrupt NTFS file causing Roaming Profile errors as user logs off.
File does not appear to have an ACL. When opening Properties the Security tab is not displayed.
As a result this file cannot be deleted, moved, copied, etc... M$ is aware of this type of problem
and offers this advice/support http://support.microsoft.com/kb/246026
Things Tried: (Using HDD clone so any failed attempts to delete file do not cause additional problems)
Using newest XCacls.vbs: Returns; Error when trying to read current ACL (Msg#404)
Zap.exe: Returned: GetLastError() = 1392, File or folder corrupt
3 other File deletion utilities: Return(you guessed it): Error 1392, File or folder corrupt
Access from MAC (Tiger): NTFS mounts as read only and crashes when try to read file info
Bart-PE boot: Fails: Same as others, File or folder corrupt
Is anyone aware of a workaround for removing this file without having to use NTBackup and restore
as M$ has suggested? I will probably use NTBackup but since this problem doesn't require immediate
resolution I thought I'd ask for other suggestions.
Since a successful detele using Windows Explorer only removes the pointer I though about using a HEX editor but Im not real versed on these and didnt know how to remove the file pointer from the MFT.
