Disk Check WIndows File Protection Error
Posted on 2008-10-28
I was trying to free up more free space on the C DRIVE of my email server [HOU-EXCH2]. I RIGHT-CLICKED the C DRIVE and ran the DISK CLEANUP utility and ran the command to COMPRESS UNUSED FILES. The command ran until at the very end when a MENU POPPED UP that reads:
Windows File Protection
Files that are required for Windows to run properly have been replaced by unrecognized versions. To maintain system stability, Windows must restore the original versions of these files. Insert your WINDOWS SERVER 2003 CD-ROM now.
What would happen if I inserted the CD and ran the command? Did I completely blow up the operating system of our main EMAIL SERVER? What should I do?
