Windows – Corrupt File Error Display


It seems that your system drive has a serious problem in the file system. Every drive has its own System Volume Information. This is located in the root of every drive. For example, in drive C, it is located at C:System Volume Information. This folder stores all the information needed by Windows for its System Restore function. This is also the favorite place where worm virus hibernates. That’s why before I always disable the System Restore function of Windows so that the System Volume Information folder is not functional. But the bad effect is you will not be able to restore the computer to its previous state.

Since your problem is the System Volume Information that got corrupted, try checking your computer for any possible errors. Use a disk utility application to check the system. For a much thorough diagnostics on the system, use a disk utility application like Norton SystemWorks or PC Tools Performance Toolkit. Restart the computer after the disk check. Check if you will see that message again at startup.

If ever you happen to see that error message again at startup, right-click My Computer then select Properties. Click on System Restore tab then check the option that says Turn off System Restore on all drives then click OK. This will disable the System Restore function of Windows in all drives and will remove the contents of the System Volume Information. Restart the computer if the system asks you to. This will surely remove the error message that appears during startup. If the system is already ok, you can now go back to the System Restore tab and remove the check.

Hello Dear,
It is so easy to solve this problem.

This error is also showing a solution.

In fact, you have some bad clusters in your file system.

You have encountered an accidental shutdown, so you do not have to worry. Click on the error.

When you see your desktop, type “chkdsk” in RUN and press enter.

It will perform a file system scan, and it will detect and fix any errors by itself. Thanks.
