chkdsk & unused security descriptors...

  1. Could someone please sugeest a utility that might take care of this for me ? After having done more searching than I wanted to, I came up with nothing very useful as far as info. The microsoft site had info alright... but that was for windows 2000 and other as far as I could tell. I have winxp sp2 here and I also have all the updates. here is the chkdsk log.


    The type of the file system is NTFS.


    Cleaning up 17 unused index entries from index $SII of file 0x9.
    Cleaning up 17 unused index entries from index $SDH of file 0x9.
    Cleaning up 17 unused security descriptors.
    CHKDSK discovered free space marked as allocated in the
    master file table (MFT) bitmap.
    Windows has made corrections to the file system.

    Now it just keeps comming up with basically more of the same even if only 2-4
    instead of 17 or whatever... I have seen alot worse when I searched for info. There is nothing wrong with my disk. It isn't damaged or anything that I know of but this is driving me nuts because I like to see a clean log... I did gather (microsoft site) that it seems to be referencing something that isn't even there ($SDH of file 0x9) but having never dealt with this, I would hardly know.

    As you say, the chances are that the references are to a file or files that are not there and probably temporary in any event.
    Either live with it, find the program causing the problem or, best of all, reinstall Windows.

    Well I'd rather see there had been NO reply than one like that. Supposed PC gurus dont know the real probelm. I have seen threads where people reinstalled and it still happened... Then I seen A thread on another tech site that said it wasn't a real problem <(I'm going with that). Had found a update on microsofts website for this. When I inquired about it, it wasn't even available yet. Could be just a ploy to make some more money for em via "paid support" for all I know. Good chance they dont even know wth it really is. I'm not going to worry about it.
