Copying files to server: Error 0x80070570: The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable

Migrating all users data to the promoted DC/File Server.  However, I started receiving copy and sync errors on two computers half way through the migration.  The Dell PowerEdge has a disk array (MD 1000) attached to it.  I suspect it's a hard drive issue but the event viewer nor the lights indicate this is the case.  I'm trying to download the correct console for troubleshooting this issue further.  Please assist. Also, is it worth extending the warranty on the array and server?  

server 2008 R2
Unzip the following but no executable...  Not sure if I'm running the right software
C:\Dell Management Packs\MD Storage Array Mgmt Suite\4.1

chkdsk /f /r D: seems to be the prevailing answer.  I will try this later this evening.  Any other ideas?

I feel your pain!!

Have you tried copying to another disk which have a file system that has less file size limmit than your source?

Have you run a scan disk?  Any issues there?

As for what come after "server 2008 R2" in your question, I dont get your concern.  Can you please clarify?

cheers,
Rene

It's a 2008 R2 box.  I tried downloading and unzipping below but there was no executable...  Not sure if I'm running the right software from Dell's website for diagnosing the problem...

Found the link located below but the drives are healthy.  The firmware is out of date but beyond that,  I'm not sure why I get corrupted files and folders copying to the server

When are you getting these errors--at what point in the migration process or are you manually copying the users files (and if so how)?

I should also add that using your DC as a file server is not recommended unless you have no other choice.

Anyway, you figure out the source of the problem. Is it the source or the destination? Easiest way to check that is copy files elsewhere.

I'm wondering if the whole process is overloading the MD1000. Any success with copying in smaller batches?

chkdsk worked.  I just took over the account.  I have to get the other broken server going and  have it as the alternate DC.

Hi snoopaloop

I suggested that you scan you disk to find and drive issue.

Thats what you did with chkdsk and it worked for you.

Can you please tell me why you did not acknoledge my contribution by giving me the points?

Cheers,
Rene

I did not know what you were referring to when you said scan.   The interwebs suggested chkdsk command and that was the fix.
