index $0 for file 25 during every chkdsk RRS feed

  • Question

  • Every time chkdsk runs I get the error index $0 for file 25.  This is a large file server so we really cannot bring the server down often.  A couple weeks ago the power company scheduled a power outage to replace equipment so we brought everything down except this file server.  I connected it to a generator and let the chkdsk run.  It ran for about 5 hours and showed deleting file 25 for about an hour then writing file 25 for about 2 hours then continued to run with no more errors.  After it finished I shut down the server and waited for the power to be restored.  Brought the server online everything seemed fine.  I have been receiving several errors "Ntfs(55) - The file system structure on the disk is corrupt and unusable.  Please run the chkdsk utility on the volume Internal Storage Array.

  • Hi,

    If the issue cannot be fixed by chkdsk /f or /r, you may not able to find a solution except perform a format.

    As the server need to be kept running, my suggestion is to temporarily ignore it until you have enough time to troubleshoot or maybe perform a format with proper backup.

    In the meantime it is important to keep a healthy backup incase it is a hard disk issue.
