Fix: File System is broken in Windows 7 Error Message

If you receive an error message that states that the file system is broken in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2, then this article may interest you.

On a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2, you may randomly see an error message that states that the file system is broken.

For instance, if you run an application that uses the MoveFileEx() function to replace files, more than one time in a short time, you may receive an “ERROR_FILE_CORRUPT” error message.

Additionally, you may encounter one of the following issues:

  • A warning message is displayed in the notification area. This warning message indicates that you should run the Chkdsk.exe utility to check the disk.
  • A disk check is scheduled for the next time that you start the computer.

If you face this situation then applying Fix316593 may help you.
