Corrupt and unreadable

When I open my pc a popup appears that says some application data history is corrupt and unreadable and to use the chkdsk utility. This also happens when i open my ccleaner. I have run chkdsk many times however the pop up still appears. How can I correct this? I have run my AVG virus checker many times but there is no infection shown.

Error 9119 rosetta stone


When you install Rosetta Stone it puts its language files in a different folder. When you uninstall the program the language files are left intact and are never touched. If a problem occurs and one of the language files becomes corrupt and unreadable you're going to get that error 9119 every time when you try to re-install your language pack. Each language level has THOUSANDS of files in hundreds of sub-folders. Each file in those sub-folders has an hexadecimal name of 40 or more characters in length. So good luck trying to find the corrupt file(s). Also, because the file or files are corrupt, they can't be read or deleted. You're going to have to perform chkdsk on your hard drive to recover the bad sectors...eventually. The quickest and simplest way to fix your Rosetta Stone problem is to rename the folder where it puts its language files to something else. On an xp system the default name is "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Rosetta Stone". I changed mine to "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Garbage Files". That way when Rosetta Stone goes to install its language files it will recreate the folder cleanly instead of trying to overwrite the old folder and its corrupt files. That will solve your problem. You can then run chkdsk at your leisure. Good luck and spread the word.

H:\$MFT KEEPS POPING IN MY PC


MFT stands for Master File Table. NTFS (New Technology File System) uses it in order to record references of all files and folders of the corresponding volume. It is the most significant metadata structure of NTFS volume. It is the point from where NTFS installed system starts from to access any file. Any corruption caused to MFT will lead to Data Recovery routine. When MFT gets corrupted, user may fail to access files and carry out usual operations like renaming, deleting or opening the file with an error similar to:
“H:\ $MFT is corrupt and unreadable. Please run the chkdsk utility.”
The error is specific to Windows XP and 2000. Users can also encounter the same error message as a Windows pop-up balloon at the lower-right corner of computer screen.
  • To resolve the issue, we need to first take full data backup and check for its consistent status. If media fails to restore data or the backup operation faces some difficulty, Data Recovery Software will be required to recover.
  • We can start Recovery Console by starting our system using the Windows operating system disk.
  • We can press R to select the repair option on the Welcome to setup screen.
  • We need to specify Administrator password, if there is no administrator password just press Enter.
  • We can then use chkdsk /H:Drive Letter: through command prompt and try repairing the damaged MFT.
Chkdsk /H: acts upon the file system and attempts to repair the damage. But it can cause more damage if it fails. In such cases, we need to format the drive and restore data from backup. If backup has not been efficiently taken or can’t offer full restoration, Data Recovery applications can help.

Chrome.exe - corrupt file history index 2010 -


Depending on your Operating system, go to C:\Documents and Settings\[Your user account here]\Local settings\Application data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default". You will find 5 or 6 folders and in the folder that you're in you will find some files like 'History-journal' to that effect. Delete all of these files. It will not wreck the browser or settings as these files will be recreated again.
See if that helps you!

Error unitialized corrupt boot structure detected biohd-4 boot path, keep getting this after trying to install windows 7, cant boot disk anymore so cant install windows 7


try repairing the file system using chkdsk with /f switch. However, it is strongly recommended to run this tool only if you have a full data backup
. To do so, click \'Start\' and then \'Run\'. You can then type \'chkdsk /f <drive name>\' in the \'Open\' box and click OK. Here, the drive name should be exactly what is appearing in error message. Alternatively, you can opt for deleting the corrupt partition provided the backup is available. If no good backup exists, you should consider to use a Windows Data Recovery utility. These are powerful and valid Windows partition recovery utilities built to scan the corrupt or deleted partitions and safely recover the lost data. The applications are easy to install and use.

Lost file


You will probably have to replace what was corrupt. You may have copies as "volume shadow copies".

To check, right click on the parent folder of any missing or corrupt file and select Properties > Previous Versions and see if anything is there for it.

As for what chkdsk did, you can view the log by running eventvwr.msc and open the Applications log there and find and double click on the "wininit" entry.

Sometimes chkdsk saves partial copies of corrupt files -- good for data recovery, but not executables.

To see if any of these are present, open Folder Options > View and temporarily uncheck "hide protected files"

Look on the root directory (c:) for files saved as "Found(nnn)" where "nnn" is a number.

By the way you should always verify whether the drive is healthy before running defrag. Either run chkdsk on it first, or open a command prompt (start > run: cmd and enter fsutil dirty query c:

substitute any drive letter you want to check.
