Hi,

 

Hoping someone can help me. The other day I had this pop up in event viewer: 

 

The Master File Table (MFT) contains a corrupted file record. The file reference number is 0x1000000118b2b. The name of the file is "\Windows\System32\config\SOFTWARE".

 

Since then I've run chkdsk fix and repair and scanned the disk with seatools, chkdsk repaired a couple things and seatools says the disk is healthy, but not sure what else to do or how to fix it.

 

Any help would be appreciated!

 

Thanks!!

Lisa

Have you rebooted the system since the message appeared?

\Windows\System32\config\SOFTWARE is part of the registry. If there was a serious problem you would have run into it by now.

 

Just make sure System Restore is enabled so if this happens again you can recover easily.

 

Would also be a good idea to be doing image backups to an external hard drive using a program like Macrium Reflect Free.

Great, thank you! I was a tad concerned it was a sign of a demising hard drive. Thanks again for the info!!
