NTFS Event ID 55

A 2008 service pack 2 server I work with has been getting NTFS corruption of the DATA partition for the last 3 weekends in a row. Running a chkdsk fixes the issue for the entire week but then comes back sometime Saturday or Sunday. I thought at first that the backup was doing something so I disabled one of the Saturday backups (Data is rarely changed on Saturdays on this server). That did not help.

The server is a Dell PER710. The RAID is in good shape and the drivers and firmware for the Perc card have been updated. I cannot find anything in the system logs before the NTFS corruption that would have potentially caused it. I'm sure I am overlooking something. I may just need to be pointed to the correct tools to help me record what events are causing the corruption. Thanks.

the issue could just due to some anti-virus software or other filter driver blocked some file when the file was trying to be proceeded. The problem could be disappeared when the file block was removed.
Also you can try below hotfix for NTFS.sys

Thank you for the links djsharma and MaheshPM. I will look into trying those fixes if one that I just applied the other day does not work. I was looking through the patch management system and found this patch had not been approved; http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=2748349. After installing the patch I did notice a verify backup take significantly less time than normal. Not sure how that did not get approved in the past. Hopefully the NTFS issue does not return this weekend. I will post more after the coming weekend.

So far so good. I will be monitoring the drive closely over the next two weekends. I will update again in two weeks.
