\System Volume Information is corrupt and unreadable

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Lowly Engineer, Jun 29, 2007.

  1. When I boot XP Pro, I get the msg "The file or directory \System
    Volume Information is corrupt and unreadable. Please run the Chkdsk
    utility"

    I have run Chkdsk /f /x numerous times, but the problem remains.
    Does anyone know how I can fix this WITHOUT having to backup, reformat
    and restore the drive.

    TIA

    Sounds like a corrupted Registry.

    Try this advice:

    You're Welcome! now turn it back on. If the problem returns (which I doubt
    it will) then a system restore re-install is needed.
