Undoubtedly, Windows Vista appeals for its higher performance and stability to all those users who desire to run their computers with improved features. Despite these advanced features, Windows Vista is affected from major problems that root from file system corruption. Many users report unexpected data inaccessibility issues while running Windows Vista.
The present scenario depicts one such problem. If you encounter same or similar kind of problems, Windows Data Recovery solutions can help recover your lost data, especially when you have lost it because of the unavailability of data backup.
Symptoms of file system corruption in Windows Vista might not be immediate, but may be observed at different intervals of using the hard disk. For example, when loading Windows Vista at startup, you might frequently encounter the below error message that indicates hard disk file system is inconsistent for some reasons:
Checking file system on C:
The type of the file system is NTFS.
One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency. You may cancel the disk check, but it is strongly recommended that you continue.
Chkdsk is being cancelled.
Further, running a backup program also does not prove successful as you cannot backup hard disk. The computer may seem to run fine, but you can observe typical symptoms indicating corruption. For say, when you try to download an application, the system prompts that downloading cannot be done as the file system is corrupted. Or, on trying to save a file, an error message is displayed such as:
“The disk structure is corrupted and unreadable.”
In worst cases, the computer can completely become unbootable.
To prevent such problems from causing major impacts like data inaccessibility, you should always keep checking and repairing disk inconsistency by running chkdsk. This is an effective Windows Data Recovery command that can scan your hard disk and solve most of the file system problems.
If you are not at a stage that chkdsk might work, the only solution is to reformat the entire hard disk and restore the deleted data from last backup. When you have no data backup or an invalid backup, running a Windows Data Recovery Software like Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery can help.
