Hello ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Try this....

The cyclic redundancy check, or "CRC" error, indicates a bad spot on your hard drive. The fact that you're seeing it when you try to copy a file indicates that the bad spot may be within the file itself.
We need to verify that and then we need to try to recovery your file and repair your hard drive.
First, let's make sure that the problem is actually with the file you're copying since it's equally likely that the problem is with the location you're copying too. This is easy. Fire up a Command Prompt window, and then copy the file to NUL:
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

C:\>CD (to wherever the file is located)

C:\wherever>copy Outlook.pst NUL
1 file(s) copied.
This reads the entire file by copying it "nowhere". If this succeeds, the problem is not actually with the file itself, but the location you were trying to copy it to. My recommendation would be to copy it to a different disk entirely, or a different machine on your local network.
If this copy fails, then we've confirmed that the bad sector on your hard disk is actually being used by some portion of your file.
Now that we've confirmed that the problem is in fact in the file itself, we need to make as best a copy of it as we can, somewhere else. This sets a position of "it can't get any worse than this". Some data within the file may be lost, but you'll have copied as much as possible before the recovery efforts.
Once again, we want to copy the file to some different hard disk, or some other machine on your local network. And once again we need to do this within the command prompt:
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

C:\>CD (to wherever the file is located)

C:\wherever>xcopy /c Outlook.pst D:
1 file(s) copied.
Two important things to note here: we've used the xcopy (for eXtended copy) command, and we've added the"/C" switch which keeps copying even if errors are encountered. As you've already experienced, the default behavior of both COPY and XCOPY is to stop if an error occurs.
Now that we've got a "no worse than" backup copy, we can start attempting to repair the disk.

SpinRite is a hard drive recovery and maintenance program. When you run it, it will perform a lengthy and exhaustive analysis of your hard disk without modifying its contents. Exactly how it does what it does is probably too technical and lengthy for this space, but one of the most important things that it does is simply this:
If a bad sector can be recovered, SpinRite will recover it."My recommendation would be to copy it to a different disk entirely, or a different machine on your local network."And many, though of course not all, bad sectors can be recovered using SpinRite.
The net result is that after running SpinRite on the drive, it will either recover the sectors and you'll have a good, working hard disk once again, or it won't - and you'll know with some confidence that the disk cannot be recovered.
In the first case, if SpinRite is actually able to recover the sector for you, then unless SpinRite tells you otherwise, I'd then happily reboot and continue using the hard drive.
If SpinRite is unable to recover some data on your hard drive, I would first reboot into Windows and, as we did above, make another copy of the file. While SpinRite may not have recovered all the bad sectors on your hard drive, it could have repaired some, and those might have been the ones causing the problem with the file you're trying to access. I would not overwrite our first "no worse than" copy, but I would save this new file, as a kind of "possibly better" copy. And then I'd plan on replacing the drive.

If you're not up for spending the money for SpinRite, then Window's own CHKDSK utility is the next best thing. It's not as thorough, and it doesn't perform the same deep analysis and recovery as SpinRite, but it can, in fact, recover from some types of hard disk failures.
Once again, in the Command Prompt:
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

C:\>CHKDSK /R
The "/R" parameter indicates that CHKDSK should check for errors and repair them as best it can.
Important: if this is your system drive (most often C:), this command will not actually run the operation immediately, but will schedule it for the next reboot. You'll need to reboot to actually make it happen.
After it's done, try making another copy of the file. If it doesn't work, then obviously CHKDSK wasn't able to repair the error you're experiencing. If it does, however, save that copy as a possibly fixed copy of your file.
Even if CHKDSK does repair the problem, I'm actually torn on how much to continue to trust the hard disk. You could still experience future failures.
Though I suppose that's true for any hard disk, after any utility is used. Or not.

At this point, if none of the steps above have repaired the bad sector or otherwise recovered your file, you're just a little bit screwed.
It's now time to work with the best-effort file that you saved earlier and, depending on what kind of file it is, try to recover the contents. In your example, an Outlook PST file, that means running scanpst on it, which will scan the contents of the file and attempt to recover what it can. There most likely will be data loss. Sometimes a lot of data loss. That's why I encourage you to never run utilities like scanpst on your only copy of the file. You always want the original to go back to in case there's something else in it that you can recover manually.
For other types of files and applications, it'll depend entirely on the specifics of that application as to how it will deal with a partially corrupt file, and whether or not it can be repaired.

And that brings me to my last point.
If this was your only copy of the file - if you would have suffered significant data loss had this file become corrupt - you haven't been backing up.
Start.
This was a wake-up call. Even if we successfully recovered your file, you should be very scared.
Start backing up your important data. Now.
The next time there's a problem, you may not be as lucky.

Fix a Cycle Redundancy Check Error


The "Cyclic Redundancy Check" error is a Windows error message telling you there's a problem reading data you're trying to access.


The root of this problem could either be a damaged storage device or a corrupt file.

Windows has built-in tools to attempt to fix to this problem, and avoid further errors.


Click on the "Start" menu in the bottom left-hand corner and click "Run."

Type in "cmd" and press "Enter" on your keyboard.

This will open a black command prompt box.


Type in "chkdsk /f" and press "Enter."

If you receive a message saying the disk will be checked the next time the system starts, press "Y" and then "Enter."


Restart your computer by closing the command prompt box and selecting "Shut Down" from the Start menu.


Wait for the disk scan to reach 100 per cent.

This may take awhile.

When it completes, your drive errors may be fixed.


Avoid future problems with this type of error by replacing the file that caused the problem.

For example, if you got the error when using a text document, open the document and copy all the text (press "Ctrl" and "A" at the same time and then "Ctrl" and "C" at the same time).


Create a new text document and paste the text in by pressing "Ctrl" and "V" simultaneously. Save the new file, and delete the old document.


Hope this heps

Do you have the original installation disk that came with the computer? You can try to boot from that CD and do a repair installation. The Cyclic Redundance Check (CRC) error refers to the media the computer is trying to access (either the CD or the hard drive). Try booting into Safe Mode (reboot and press F8 repeatedly until you get a boot menu). From Safe Mode run a checkdisk (chkdsk from command line) on the hard drive to find and repair any found disk issues.

I downloaded some videos to my hard drive. When I try to burn them on or erase them from my DVD, I get this error: "Error 0x80070017: Data error (cyclic redundancy check)". What should I do? Note: ...


Cyclic redundancy is one of the data checking algorithms and it is getting a non-recoverable error for some reason.

I suspect the software you are using to burn the DVD may be corrupt or incompatible with your Vista operating system.

It ALSO might be that the video is COPYRIGHTED and you are being blocked from copying it to a removable medium. There is no solution for that situation.

Re-installing xp


A cyclic redundancy check (CRC error) is an error checking program that is used to verify data and can be caused by hardware or software. The most common causes are bad CD disk, hard drive or memory. To run diagnostics press and hold the <Fn> key while powering the system on. This will run the Dell Diagnostics. Examine the Windows CD and see if there are any scratches or smudges on the media, try another CD disk if you have one.
