ntfs error 137


  • I am attempting to resolve and NTFS error 137 "the default transaction resource manager on volume \\?\xyz encountered a non-retryable error and could not start."

    I have tried the "fsutil resource setautoreset true" fix without success.  Now looking for other options.

  • Hi,

    Have you tried to perform a chkdsk /f?

    Also test the following hotfix to update NTFS.sys if it is a Windows 7/2008 R2 system:

    Meanwhile, you can also test to extend the disk as low disk space could also cause similar issue.
