    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.
