Hello.
Having a difficult time - losing data and continually corrupt files.  Error logs stating corrupt and tells me to run chkdsk.exe (which has been done many many times with /f/r switches).

Restoring data back to volume showing corruption as well.

Now files and folders starting to just disappear because of the corruption.  

I have a consulting company that monitors and works on our servers and network and they said they do not know what to do now.  They're run antivirus checks, run chkdsk.exe /f/r and still the errors are happening.  WE are losing work and I do not know what to do.  Below is what I copied form the Server Administrator's log that was sent to me.  If someone could please help, I'd apprecite it.  

What happened?  Drive C: was down to 2%.  Copied c:\data share folder to new folder on H:\Volume
Set up all permissions, secuity.  Worked great for about 3 days.  

Getting VSS errors, The shadow copy could not be committed - operation timed out.

Ci errors -Cleaning up corrupt content index metadata on c:\system volume information\catalog.wci.

MXExchange Error : The Win32 API call 'DsGetDCNameW' returned error code [0x862] The specified component could not be found in the configuration information. The service could not be initialized. Make sure that the operating system was installed properly

VOL Snap error:
The shadow copies of volume H: were aborted because volume H:, which contains shadow copy storage for this shadow copy, was force dismounted.

did you check the internal temperatures or if you have some fan problems?

It could be a driver problem too. Are you using a PERC ou SASxIR?

Hello,

First thing to do: try to backup data if possible (imaging them ideally and from a boot CD to avoid eventual corrupted OS problems).

Second : the administrator should check hardware integrity, especially the HDD's (enable S.M.A.R.T technology in the server's BIOS and check S.M.A.R.T attributes + check drives health with the appropriate tools which are usually offered by the drive's manufacturers).

Good luck.

Removed the volume, reformatted a new volume and copied over the back up'd data.  So far so good.  Thanks for everyone's input.
