Windows 2003 server suddenly getting a NTFS error (system event ID 55) requiring that chkdsk be run.  The process always gives 'deleting an index entry from index $0 of file 25". Then it inserts an index entry into the same file.   How can I tell which file 'file 25' is ?  No more info about that particular file is given.

When this happens there are a lot of SRV error 2000, which I have not been able to find a resolution for, and the spooler service stops and restarts.  The service is used by our scanning solution.  Not sure whether the spooler is causing the corruption or the corruption is causing the service to stop.  Has anyone had this combination of issues?  Any help would be appreciated.
