Multiple Event 55 messages about volume corruption

Hello,

We are running Windows 2008R2 on a Dell server.
D: is on a physical RAID 5 array with 3 drives.
We've been seeing continued messages in the Event Viewer:
Event Properties - Event 55, Ntfs
The file system structure on the disk is corrupt and unusable.  Please run the chkdsk utility on the volume Volume01.
We have run chkdsk in read-only mode but no problems were detected.  What is the recommended action to take at this point?  We can certainly run chkdsk in read/write if needed.
Thanks.
Real-Timer.

Thanks but we do not have Volume Shadow Copy or Windows Server Backup enabled. In our case, it happens 3 times a day at 8-hour intervals (2:50 am, 10:50 am, 6:50 pm). I cannot find anything that is scheduled at those times.
Any other idea would be appreciated.

Click OK or Yes to the UAC prompt.

Type or copy/paste the below command and then press the Enter key.

Something else to try if the above method doesn't work.

Seeing that you have the times that this Event occurs you may find the culprit with Process Monitor

Download Process Monitor. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896645.aspx

Run it, turn Capture off, Menu File Capture Events and then Clear list, Menu Edit Clear Display. Now you are ready to run a Capture just before the Event that is causing the error.

Once the Event fails stop capture. Process Monitor will track an overwhelming amount of stuff but start sifting through there to see what is failing.

Thanks. Task list does not show anything as I confirmed by manually going through scheduled tasks.

I will try the process monitor.
