The file system structure on the disk is corrupt and unusable RRS feed

  • 問題

  • Dear all,

     

    When I made a fresh installation on a IBMx3650 server with Raid 5 with MS Windows Server 2003, I got the following message when I do a NT backup on the system state:

     

    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: Ntfs
    Event Category: Disk
    Event ID: 55
    Date:  8/8/2008
    Time:  1:01:29 PM
    User:  N/A
    Computer:
    Description:
    The file system structure on the disk is corrupt and unusable. Please run the chkdsk utility on the volume \Device\HarddiskVolumeShadowCopy1.

    For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.
    Data:
    0000: 00 00 04 00 02 00 52 00   ......R.
    0008: 02 00 00 00 37 00 04 c0   ....7..?
    0010: 00 00 00 00 02 01 00 c0   .......?
    0018: 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00   ........
    0020: 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00   ........
    0028: c2 00 22 00               ?".   

    In fact, I have many experience on server installation with the same situaiton but I never get this error message before. Also I clear all array settings and made the IBM server reinstalled with a fresh MS Windows 2003 server but the problem still existed. Please kindly advice and thanks in advanced.

  • Dear Customer,

     

    Regarding your question, event 55 error usually indicates hardware related issue on the hard drive or controller or  NTFS volumes'' Master File Table (MFT) is corrupted. For example, the short and long file name pairs that are stored in the directory index record and the file names that are stored in the associated File Record Segment (FRS) contain case-sensitive characters that do not match.

     

    It is usually difficulty to trace this event because it is logged by file system driver in kernel layer. Usually a live debug of kernel is necessary is needed if we want to find the exact stuff occurs. To isolate a hardware related issue, I suggest that you back up the volume that contains the corrupted file(s) and exclude the corrupted file(s) from the backup job.

     

    Reformat the volume, and then restore from the backup.

     

    I suggest that you refer to the following article for more related information:

  • Not that it helps. 

     

    I see this problem as well.  In my case I have one large raid volume, with three logical volumes on top of it.  One of the logical  vol's (drive C) always gets the corruption.  (we run checkdsk, reboot), problem goes away.  We run a caching disk controller along with onlien hot spares for the raid araay (so no hardware failure)

     

    Just started happening in june, not gettign it every day

     

    Have you found out why?
