Strange issue with file corruption.

We have an "interesting" issue going in with a file server at one of our sites.  This is a MS Windows 2003 Standard X64 OS.

About two weeks ago users began experiencing file corruption issues on some Subversion files stored on the D drive of the server.  For those wondering what subversion is you can go here: http://www.svnforum.org/forum.php

I have run chkdsk, SFC, and a few other utilities in trying to determine whether there is a hardware issue.  Nothing came out in the results.  I have also updated our virus protection software an ran multiple full scans and again nothing.

The interesting thing about all of this is that the file corruption began happening 1 day prior to our experiencing a fairly severe outbreak of the Expiro virus at several of our locations. One of the symptoms we experienced at infected sites was file corruptions. Again, I have run about 4 full scans to no avail.

Any suggestions as to where I go next with this?  

I find it more than a coincidence that one of the symptoms of the Expiro virus is file corruption, but we had no problems detecting and cleaning it so I would think if indeed this server is infected we would have caught it with all the scans I have run.

I did reboot the server before every scan and again we have had no problems in the past detecting and cleaning the virus.

Thanks!

Hi,

Do you have regular backups that you can recover your files from?

Yes, but that is not the issue.  I need the corruption to stop.  If I restore good files to the server they will just become corrupted again.

Any other input?

File corruption issue has not stopped.  We are replacing the server.
