Scenario: you back up and run integrity check on the new archive, which produces an error
This may happen due to errors in the geometry or logical data on the source partition or disk. It’s recommended to troubleshoot both.
Geometry. To ensure proper partition geometry, use Windows Disk Management to slightly resize each partition on the affected disk.
- Launch WDM. On Windows 7: right click computer > Manage > Disk Management. On Windows 8: right click the faux Start button > Disk Management.
- Shrink each partition by 10 megabytes, then expand it back.
Data errors. Run the Windows checkdisk tool to fix possible filesystem and disk errors.
- Launch an elevated command prompt. On Windows 7: Start > All Programs > Accessories > find Command Prompt and right click it > Run as administrator. On Windows 8: right click the faux Start button > Command Prompt (Admin).
chkdsk [volume letter]: /f /r
Where [volume letter] is substituted with the letter of a volume on the affected disk. The flags /f /r tell the program to look for filesystem and disk errors and correct them. The program may require restart, in this case input Y > Enter and reboot the computer.
- Repeat #2 for every other volume on the affected disk.
After these operations, the error should be gone.
