The symbols which need to be downloaded and installed that match the OS from which the dump was retrieved. The issue here it seems an error with filesystem.
Could you run chkdsk c: repeat for the various disk partitions that you have.  This format will only analyze the disk.
At the conclusion it will tell you if a chkdsk /F should be run if you do need to run, it will likely happen on the next reboot so make sure you take that into account before scheduling all partitions to be scanned at the same time on the next reboot.  If this is a server, check raid logs if any also check whether you have the option to run a consistency check on the RAID volume.
