Error occurred during directory enumeration


In the Windows Recovery console when doing the dir command you may get the "An error occurred during directory enumeration" error. This error indicates that the computer is unable to read from the hard disk drive and could be an indication of a serious hard drive corruption or failure.

Try correcting this issue by running the below chkdsk command to find and repair any errors.

chkdsk /r

If this is able to complete and you're in the recovery console because Windows is not working properly, remove the disk from the computer and try booting the computer normally. If Windows boots we highly recommend backing up your data and run scan disk on the drive.

If after running this command you're getting the volume appears to contain one or more unrecoverable problems error run through the troubleshooting steps for this error.
