  1. Can anyone tell me what error 57 is. I am using Bootit NG to resize my partition C and make it larger. The problem is when I go to resize it says error 57 found on file system. Use scandisk or chkdsk/f. I google but can't find anything to really help. Anyone on here know what to do?

    There are many different causes of an Error 57. Usually, this is an error when a laser printer is not working properly.
    But it can be any I/O (input/output) error where the computer and its hardware are having problems working together.
    But it can also be caused by a FTP file transfer error.
    Sometimes it is nothing more than a loose cable, so reseat everything.
    If you use a laser printer connected to that computer, a google search or a manufacturer site search may be useful.
