We have a 2008 R2 file server that uses IScsi to get to the SAN.  We have a virtual machine running in VM Ware that is using a data drive on the SAN for file storage.  We had power issues the weekend before.  The servers failed not so gracefully.  Three days later we have complaints over corrupted files.  The corruption is not consistent, but only occurs with newly saved files every once in a while but it is worsening.

We have done the following:
1. Rebooted physical server and SAN.
2. Rebooted VM
3. Saved files ourselves but have not replicated the problem.
4. No errors are in the logs of the servers.

Any ideas?

You will need to run a chkdsk on the NTFS file system, which could take a long time, this is not unsuaul when using NTFS remotely.

Also you should really have some UPS devices on this infrastructure to help prevent this in the future...
