I did what you said below.

It made another file, but the error message was like:


------------------------------------------------------------------
Cannot open the file c:\temp\logfilename.log you specified.

Make sure the disk is in the drive you specified.
------------------------------------------------------------------

The new file, hope.txt has 0 bytes.

When I click on the file in question, it takes many seconds for it to be
highlighted. And a really long time to see the properties.

I also tried to zip the file up using Winzip.... The error message says,

"Error: Input file read error (was zipping c:temp\logfile.txt)"

I was earlier having errors on trying to update a zip file. It gave me some
error message saying there was no space on the hard drive. Which wasn't
true. I ended up re-installing winzip and rebooting. Seemed to have
worked.

I tried copying it to another drive letter and I got the error message:

------------------------------------------------------------------
Error copying file or folder
Cannot copy logfile.txt: Data error (cyclic redundancy check)
------------------------------------------------------------------


Nevertheless, I can, rename the file and move it within the same drive
letter partition.

This really annoying as this day, today, was a the most busiest day ever in
a long time and a 7.5 MB IIS log file would be very interesting to analyze.

Having a "cyclic redundancy check" is bad news:
It is usually caused by one or several unreadable clusters
on the disk. The disk may be on the way out. I recommend
that you immediately download and run the free disk
diagnostic program that the manufacturer of your hard disk
makes available on his home site.
