I have corrupt files which I cannot copy.
Posted on 2007-11-28
I have problems with a vaulting backup where it cannot backup 5 files because it thinks they are corrupt. I need to copy these files to another place before deleteing them however I get the following message if I try and copy and paste to another directory on the server:-
cannot copy "filename": the request could not be performed because of an I/O device error
If I try and copy them to my machine I get this message:-
Cannot copy "filename": Cannot read from the source file or disk.
I am only getting these problems with 5 files. I have checked that the system account has full control priviledges and I have also taken ownership of the file (I am an administrator) but I still cannot copy the files. An xcopy has also failed. I know that I can delete them but I need to copy them off first.
