Windows Server 2008 r2 corrupted folder can not fix

Hello experts.

I have a server which is a hyper v 2008 r2 windows machine. I had a corrupted directory. I run a chkdsk from windows recovery command console and it errors out at the end. When I go back into the server the directory if fixed but one folder remains corrupt.

I try to run additional check disks but they error as well. I just now want to delete the directory but it will not allow. It says corrupt

Any advice would be appreciated

Do I run that at the recovery console?


Is the SCF/scan now a separate command?

The dism gives me errors that /clean-image and /restorehealth can't be used. I did s sfc /scannow and it did not find any errors

Looks like needed to do /scanhealth first. That is running now on a test replica. I will update

Please post the error screenshot you are having while deleting folder ..sfc etc is used for verify windows integrity and does not recover any corrupted folders

as a guest or is this the physical host?

I try to run additional check disks but they error as well.

what options did you use?
try chkdsk /f /r though we warned that it could take a while depending on the size of the volume and will need to be rebooted if it is C so plan for downtime while it is running
sfc/dism won't do you any good; this is a file system problem

Thank you. This is the virtual machine

I have been running /f /r

It gets to about 18 percent then errors and stops

what kind of server is this?
assume you are using raid?
have you looked at your storage (including indicator lights) for any issues such as failing drive(s)?

This is a hyper v server.  All drives are fine

i meant hardware (dell, hp, etc.)
short of calling microsoft, i would make sure you have a backup of guests hosted on that box and reinstall windows - reformatting in the process

Can anyone recommend a third party tool that would work better then check disk?

I booted my 2008 r2 server to a 2012 r2 recovery console and I am running chkdsk from there and it seems to be working. Is there any issue in doing this using a 2012 recovery disk on a 2008 server?
