SCOM “File system error or corruption” alert.


Summary

NTFS has reported that the logical disk is either corrupted or completely unavailable. Some data stored on the volume may be inaccessible.

Causes

A logical disk may become corrupted or inaccessible due to a number of reasons some of which include:

A physical disk related to the logical disk has been removed or failed
A physical disk related to the logical disk has become corrupt (for example; bad sectors) or inoperable
The disk driver may've encountered an issue

Resolutions

Check the status of your hardware for any failures (for example, a disk, controller, cabling failure). In most cases, the system log contains additional events from the lower-level storage drivers that indicate the cause of the failure.

After you have isolated and resolved the hardware problem:

1. Open the Disk Management snap-in.

2. Rescan the disks and then reactivate any disks with errors.

Resynchronize or regenerate the volume as necessary if the disk was a member of a mirrored or RAID-5 volume.

3. Run chkdsk on any reactivated volumes.
