Corrupt File message at startup
When I boot up my computer, Windows XP SP3, I always get this message.
"The File or Directory D: is Corrupt and unreadable. Please run the Chkdsk utility". Then the System32 explorer window opens (buit all files are hidden)
I clear the error message, run chkdsk, which reports nothing, and the drive seems to work fine. Any ideas? the drive in question is a Maxtor 720GB.
Very new to the forum and this sort of thing!
Re: Corrupt File message at startup
I had faced this problem in past and its really annoying. In my case i was getting that error every time even after 100 CHKDSK. IS this same with you ? Do you need to run chkdsk every time ? If yes, better do one thing, scan your D drive with some good updated antivirus, move all data to some another Partition or Drive, just format D DRIVE (only) and reboot the system. See if you are getting the same message.
