Chkdsk : Same Error Every Time


F

Frank

In Windows xp sp3, from a command prompt, I type:

chkdsk d: /v/r

d is an internal hard drive, NTFS, used for backups, and it's brand
new. I get the same error message every single time:

Cleaning up 2 unused index entries from index $SII of file 9.
Cleaning up 2 unused index entries from index $SDH of file 9.
Cleaning up 2 unused security descriptors.
Fixing mirror copy of the security descriptors data stream.
Security descriptor verification completed.

How can I fix this? Any guidance would be appreciated.

Some "Resident" applications can cause Chkdsk to incorrectly
report problems. However, since all your issues are MFT type
the NTFS Metadata seems corrupted. What size is this disk &
was it's structure created with Windows Disk Management or
a 3rd-party disk management program ? Backup software also
can create/modify disk structure - what backup app do you use ?

I set up the disk's partitions with Seagate "Sea tools". I use
Acronis True Image and Syncback for my backups.

How many files do you have on the volume?

I'll check on the exact number of files. The number will be in the
thousands, as there are multiple backup sets. It's a 500 gb drive.

Fortunately, I have another full backup on yet another drive. So
maybe I should repartition and reformat drive d. That should end the
issue or, if not, indicate a problem with the hardware. What do you
think?

Probably worth doing. But wait to see if R. comes back with any
suggestions. He may not; some people just like to waste time, but he
asked the right questions so should have some idea in mind.
