I keep getting a Windows error for one of the drives; a Seagate 200 GB (Drive O) that I use to back up the data from a Maxtor 200 GB. The error in full says:
"Windows was unable to save all the data for the file O:\$Mft. The data has been lost. This error may be caused by a failure of your computer hardware or network connection. Please try to save this file elsewhere."
Once the error message pops ups, I can access the drive; it shows that data exists via properties; but none of the data is visible. If I reboot the system, the drive will be fine for a while, then the eroor message pop-ups begin anew. I am not even accessing the drive most times the error appears.
I have reformatted the drive several times; have run diagnostics on it via System Mechanic; have kept the MFT up to (and above) the amount of space recommended by Diskeeper. I have also run chkdsk /f at startup. It appears that the drive is healthy by all accounts.
My question is two fold.
a) What might be causing this error?
b) Where the error states "Please try to save this file else where." -- I would be glad to if I had any idea of what the file was, and where to find it so that I can save it.
Many Thanks in Advance,
