this is the error message I just received during scheduled Diskeeper Defrag -
Scanfat:Fatal error-file:\\?\C:\System Volume Information\_restore[12437150-AEBF-4A4E-B501-04D2231681220]RP305\SNAPSHOT\Repository\FS\OBJECTS.DATA
Can someone please tell me what this means?
Thank you, in advance.

Hi headwayne...

Run a chkdsk operation on the drive and see if it finds any problems with the file system.

Click Start then Run...type chkdsk /r (note the space) and reboot when prompted (type Y and press Enter). This will run on boot-up so restart will take a while...be patient.

Thank you. I did as you suggested; then ran the analyze segment of Diskeeper and it said there was only mild fragmentation and suggested scheduled defrags to keep it that way.
I noticed that the Page File is in three parts, now. Previously it was all in one place without any separations by files or folders. Do you think this could be related? I checked and did not find anything specific to the page file in any "help" on Diskeeper.
Thank you

You can usually correct this problem by turning off the Paging File and setting it back up again.

Right click on "My Computer" and choose "Properties". Under the "Advanced" tab, in the "Performance" section, click the "Settings" button. Under the "Advanced" tab in the next window, click on the "Change" button. Tick the button for "No Paging File", click on "Set". Apply the changes and reboot.

After restarting, go back and select "System Managed", click "Set", and Apply the change.

That should put it all together again.

Thank you, again. I did as suggested and now have two compartments with files and folders between. Guess another stab at it would put it together???

We can only hope...we're dealing with Windows, after all. :whistling:

The paging file being split isn't really going to cause any perfomance problems..this indexing is in constant flux anyway. AND you have to remember that what you see displayed is simply a representation of how space is allocated on the drive...it's not really all that accurate.
