My Windows 7 (64-bit) keeps completely locking up, and I have to hold the power button to shut it down. Event logs are showing
EventID 55. I realize that this can be a warning sign of an impending disk failure, but my data on this machine is safely backed up and I don't feel like taking the time to replace the drive right now.
When I have seen this problem before, I have been able to delete the offending folder with a Linux Live CD (when
CHKDSK /F didn't work). In this case, the folder is from VSS. I assume this is from Crashplan, my online backup provider. What are the ramifications of deleting this folder from Linux? Is it safe to do?
"The file system structure on the disk is corrupt and unusable. Please run the chkdsk utility on the volume \Device\HarddiskVolumeShadowCopy26."
