Disk Volume Error - Run System File Checker

Feb 19, 2010

the tip to run SFC -- I'm not sure where the 'command prompt' is now in Windows 7.

What I did was search for sfc, right click, then run as administrator.

It appears something is running, but no window opened to ask or tell me anything. I checked Task Mgr and Resource Monitor and can't find anything resembling SFC, but there is activity even tho' I'm not doing anything else. The hard drive light is also flickering about once per second. What should I expect? Do I just wait patiently? How can I confirm SFC is running and fixing any errors?

System File Checker (sfc), Options?

May 15, 2012

System File Checker (sfc) has a few parameters that you can use when runing sfc:

/scannow : Scans all protected system files immediately.
/scanonce : Scans all protected system files once.
/scanboot : Scans all protected system files every time the computer is restarted.
/revert : Returns the scan to its default operation.
/purgecache : Purges the Windows File Protection file cache and scans all protected system files immediately.
/cachesize=x : Sets the size, in MB, of the Windows File Protection file cache.
/? : Displays help at the command prompt.

What's the difference between the first two, /scannow and /scanonce?Does /scanonce wait until you reboot and then run one time?And while I'm asking about sfc, where is the "Windows File Protection file cache"?

Windows 7 Update And System File Checker Will Not Run?

Aug 26, 2012

The problem started when I had three updates that would not install at shutdown. I tried to run check disk and system file checker which neither would run initiallyCheck disk runs now and says there are no problems. SFC says "Window Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation." As for Windows update, I have tried deleting the temp update files located atC:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore and \Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download. I have also tried to Resource readiness tool as well as Microsoft Fix It for windows update. The fix it tool says it finds errors and fixes them but the problem is not fixed. It shows up every time I run the tool. Since deleting the temp files, windows update just says "Windows could not search for new updates" with and error code of 80070002.I suspected a virus at first but was unable to find anything with a full scan of AVG and Malware Bytes. Guess that doesn't mean there is not one.

System Image File Error - No Disk For Recovery Can Be Found

Nov 24, 2012

I have this laptop with Windows 7 as the operating system and with a capacity of 500 GB. My HDD was making loud noises and weird noises so I brought it to the shop and they told me to change the HDD because it might die anytime. So I did a full backup on my external hard disk, meaning that I cloned my laptop. I changed my 500gb HDD with a 240gb SSD. And when I tried to restore my backup files into the new drive, there's an error: "no disk that can be used for recovering the system disk can be found".

So I did some research on the internet and found out the reason of the error: it's because the image created was from a bigger drive than the new drive I put into my laptop. Even though my backup files are only about 100gb, I still cant restore it to my 240gb SSD because the image created was from my 500gb HDD. I am going to copy my backup files into an external hardisk with a capacity of 200gb and then backup from that drive and then I will restore it into my 240gb SSD. Will the backup file be considered as a backup from the 200gb drive or from the original 500gb HDD?

'system Volume On Disk Is Corrupt' And Sfc Scan Not Working

Jun 9, 2012

I have a toshiba with a windows 7 64bit, and it's been acting really slow recently and freezing up on me so I thought there might be viruses that I needed to get rid of, so I restarted my computer so I could go in safe mode with networking to check if there really were. When I restarted my computer I momentarily forgot to press the f8 key and the windows starting screen with the logo showed up. Without thinking I turned off my computer since I didn't want to restart again (it took forever for the computer to do). Once I turned the laptop on again I ended up going to system repair. For some reason this did nothing to my computer. I left it on for hours and hours until I finally decided I wasn't going to get any results. I once again restarted the laptop but this time when I went to system repair I cancelled it and when into more options and tried doing a system restore which also didn't work and said a bunch of my files couldn't be read. When I looked back at the system repair log it said "system volume on disk is corrupt." I googled it trying to find something to help me, and every place said to run sfc scan, which I did on command prompt, which always gave me the reply "there's a system repair pending which requires reboot to complete" and since my computer can't reboot properly no matter what this is what it'll say. Is there some way to run this scan or another way to fix my computer without having to lose all my data? I have some really important files on here. I've also tried running chkdsk /r /f in command prompt which it wouldn't let me do and said it can't lock the current drive because the type of file sytem is NTFS.

Service Error: Volume/disk Not Connected Or Not Found

Feb 28, 2011

I've just used Windows Update to install SP1 on two more or less identical computers with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. On one of the computers only the following error and warning are showing in the event viewer, from around the time the actual installation started (ie immediately after the download completed):Error - Source VSS, Event ID 12305 Task Category None:Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Volume/disk not connected or not found. Error context: DeviceIoControl(\?GLOBALROOTDeviceHarddiskVolumeShadowCopy18 - 000000000.....). Operation:Processing PostFinalCommitSnapshotsContext: Execution Context: System Provider________Warning - Source Ntfs Event ID 57 Task Category (2)The system failed to flush data to the transaction log.Corruption may occur.(end of messages)Both messages showed exactly the same time. System restore shows that a restore point was created at the same time, which suggests that it did manage to create a restore point despite the error.I tried restarting the computer, and it didn't try to run chkdsk (which I would expect it to do if there were any disk errors, and which has been mentioned on other forums). Disk management shows all disks and partitions to be healthy (before and after the restart).

Stuck On Starting Windows - Repair Shows System Volume On Disk Corrupted

Oct 19, 2011

I have had Win 7 installed for a while now).

Here is a summary of my problem:
1) My computer recently got stuck on the "Starting Windows Screen." So I manually held the power button to reboot.
2) On reboot, it said there was a need to run a startup repair, which I did. Everything checked fine, except for the last one which said "System Volume on Disk is Corrupted," which it claimed to have successfully fixed.
3) After rebooting from repair, the system gets stuck on "Starting Windows Screen" for a good 10-15 minutes, after which it runs a registry check. After it completes that I get hopeful -- but the screen then gets stuck on an all black screen with just the mouse cursor and nothing more.
4) Additional note: Attempting to start the computer on "safe mode" leads safe mode startup to become stalled on "DRIVERSCLASSPNP.SYS"
5) The lastest attempt to repair yielded this message: "Startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically.

Problem event Name: Startup Repair Offline

However, I soon discovered that if I boot from the Windows 7 cd and do not boot from it (By ignoring the "Press a key to boot from CD or DVD..." Windows 7 boots up fine.

i recently got a computer from my aunt, and decided to put windows 7 on it. Before I installed it, I put in a Geforce 8800 graphics card and a (2nd) cd rom drive. After 20 failed attempts to install windows 7 (it kept freezing at the completing installation part) it worked after i disconnected the new graphics card and one of the hard drives. Now, however, i keep on getting periodic blue screens with the following error messages : Memory Management, and PFN_List Corrupt. I ran a memory diagnostic and it said that the memory is fine. What is wrong with my computer? I also ran a system repair thing from the windows 7 disk, and it came up with this error: System File Integrity Check and Repair Error Code 0X490

Remove Windows System File Protection From 2nd Disk?

Jul 3, 2011

Less than a month ago I build a new rig, installed Windows 7 on my SSD and at a later time I attached my old 1TB large disk with still had XP installed on it.Windows is protecting this drive, all folders are flagged read only and I'm unable to remove the read only flag, each time I try, and check back after processing a job to un flag it, there still there.I'm able to delete files and folders after accepting the UAC popup, however, there are several folders I want to remove but am unable to, /Boot, /Documents & Settings, /Windows and some root system files, but windows doesn't let me.(I need to run programs with elevated rights in order to be able to modify those files) The /Boot is from an older Windows 7 install and it should be safe removing it, because I installed windows 7 on a SSD with out any other disks attached, so no dual boot stuff.But worst of all, many files are also flagged read only, along with my project files that I'm now unable to modify.What buttons do I need to press to get windows to understand he should not be protecting this disk and there ain't no windows installed on it so I can clean up get rid of those read only flags on the files

Non System Disk Error

Oct 25, 2009

I recently tried to install a mac osx on my computer that was currently running windows 7. I created a separate partition on my 320GB hard drive that was unallocated space until I partitioned it. After I installed it, when I tried booting into that hard drive, I got the non-system disk error. I went back into the mac osx install disk and erased the osx installation.

I then put in the windows 7 installation disk and clicked repair my system. It searched for startup errors and found that the Boot Manager was missing or corrupt. Is there any way I can reinstall the Boot Manager without reinstalling all of Windows 7? I ran the startup repair a few times until it could not find any problems. Now it says: Disk Error. Press any key to restart.

NTLDR + Non System Disk Error?

Jul 2, 2012

I have an HP Elitebook laptop. I got it new about 2 years ago and have had it attached to a docking station since I bought it. Connected to the docking station is an external hard drive where I store a complete backup of my laptop (I use the program "Norton Ghost"). I should probably also mention that the HP laptop used to have Windows Vista installed on it. I installed Windows 7 over it.

The Problem Recently when booting my computer I have noticed that I sometimes get a NTLDR or non-system disk error. Two things confuse me about this:

1) They only started within the last 4 months. I haven't changed anything.

2) They are random and don't always occur.

My attempts First off, here is my current boot order:

Notebook Hard Drive
Notebook Upgrade Bay
USB Floppy
External SATA
USB Hard Drive
Docking station upgrade bay
... some other stuff

Playing around with the boot order yields interesting results. If I change the order, the NTLDR error will disappear an the non-system disk error will appear and vice-versa.

Boot Error - Insert System Disk

Here are the drives I have on my computer:
-Windows 7 installed on a 1TB drive
-Windows XP on a 500gb drive
-2TB drive for storage.
-1TB drive for storage
-500GB drive for storage

Windows 7 was installed before XP, and I believe XP came after the physical installation of the 2TB drive. I always have to press F8, and then select the first hard drive in the list, and then I'd be able to select to boot "Windows 7." Otherwise it'd give me "boot disk boot error, please insert system disk." The drive I'm selecting is my 2TB drive. My computer won't boot if the 2TB isn't plugged in. I've tried Option One and Two from here with no luck: [URL].

Windows Error Recovery - System Repair Disk Didn't Fix

I'm writing about my brother's Samsung R780 laptop (running Windows 7 64 bit), which recently stopped working. When he starts the computer, he gets the following error: "Windows Error Recovery." Searching around online led us to create a system repair disk on my laptop (which also runs Windows 7). When we boot with the disk in the drive, a prompt asking for our language (which is greyed out so we can't change it) and our keyboard (which we can change) appears. Without changing the keyboard option, we press 'next' and then it freezes. We've also tried the 'repair your computer' option in the Advanced Boot Options, but it also freezes.

Can A GPT Boot Disk Be Converted To A Basic Volume

Feb 3, 2013

I was setting up a Win7 new build with an Asus P8B75-V and an SSD. Although I previously have done clean installs with UEFI motherboards and SSDs, this time the install DVD created a GPT volume on the boot disk (much to my surprise and which I discovered opnly after loading all the apps, moving the email, etc, etc.).

Knowing a lot more about basic MBR volumes (and how to fix problems), I would like to convert the GPT to a basic volume. I have Acronis DiskDIrector 11 which can convert the GPT to MBR, but when I tried that, it rendered the disk unbootable. (The conversion resulted in a 124MB unallocated space, followed by a 100MB FAT32 volume (!?!?!), and then the rest of the drive as NTFS.)

Is there a way to convert a boot disk from GPT to basic and have it be bootable? Is there anything that can be done with the converted HD to make it bootable?

Disk Management Tool Won't Allow New Simple Volume

I'm trying to create a new simple volume in 130 GB free disk space. There's no obvious reason why it would refuse to do so - I'm not at the hard limit on number of partitions or anything - but disk management MSC is consistently returning "Not enough space" errors. The only thing I can think of is something to do with the partition order, but if so I have no idea how to fix it non-destructively. I'm in the middle of backups on it, so deleting partitions is a no-go. At the moment I don't understand what's going on.
