Volume structure corrupt
I have a new Dell laptop with Vista pre-installed. When backing up with
Retrospect Express I get the error message "error -1123 (volume structure
corrupt)". If I try to check the disk for errors (without fixing) it runs
for a few seconds, scanning about 50,000 files, then says "1 large file
records processed" and quits, with the green bar only 1/4 way across its
container. If I try to schedule a disk check at startup, I never see any
evidence that it happens. Chkntfs says the disk is dirty. I don't know what
that means, but I saw some references to it on this newsgroup.
The computer is working, but there is obviously a problem and none of the
tools I have can solve it. What should I do?
