W10 Corruption was detected during soft recovery in logfile C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\TileDataLayer\Database\EDB.log

Event log is FULL of these errors right after he lost the ability to click the start menu and opening JPG files was very slow.  Another Q here started after the system was dropped and I'll include the link.  Need to figure out how to fix / delete / recreate corrupted logfile as indicated in this sample.

svchost (3148) TILEREPOSITORYS-1-5-21-1730992688-2170346420-2639683965-1001: Corruption was detected during soft recovery in logfile C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\TileDataLayer\Database\EDB.log. The failing checksum record is located at position END. Data not matching the log-file fill pattern first appeared in sector 75 (0x0000004B). This logfile has been damaged and is unusable

The other is here:  http://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28806819/W10-HP-desktop-lost-OS.html

Thank you very much for help.

I'd say the hard drive has errors, no matter what some windows routine has told you. If it's a mechanical hard drive and there was no freefall detection software active, most certainly the drive will have unrecoverable errors somewhere and should not be trusted anymore. Do you have a spare drive?

A non-working start menu could be just the start of more serious problems if not complete data loss pretty soon. Have a backup ready at least.

You should retest with the manufacturer's tool. If no errors are found, do a repair installation using the setup dvd or iso file. Simply start setup while windows is running and select to upgrade while retaining files, programs and settings.

Please try to test the HDD with its vendor made tool. What HDD model is there?

I hope to hear from him this weekend but believe it's a 1.5 TB Seagate so their tool may help

So far he has been making some headway. For example he redefined what he views pictures with and now photos (jpg) images load quickly whereas before it was taking  about two minutes for an image to load.   The mouse behavior also seems to have changed so that Now the left mouse button click works as it should, after changing theme. He has backed things up to an external hard drive.

 Did find a rather long routine to rebuild that data layer log file that I show at the beginning of this question  which shows corrupted but I'm not sure he has haven't gotten there yet   It may not even work

Thank you  for all your help it sure is appreciated

Alas.   Troubleshooting can be quite arduous, but  doing a reinstall for him would be the last thing he wants to do
