I have a 0.99GB file on my Desktop that I'm unable to copy or move to other disk. I'm able to move it to other locations on the same disk (as far as I know this edits the records and not the file itself?).
In Windows 7 I get the following error message: "Can't read from the source file or disk.". When using CMD.exe, I get the following: "Data error (cyclic redundancy check). 0 file(s) copied."
I've read that this could be a hardware issue, but only if I was unable to read the file. I was able to copy the file with NUL as the destination.
The file is a movie of type .VOB and I can play it with no problem. I downloaded it from a Virtual Machine using FTP. The Created, Modified and Accessed metadata won't change when I play the movie (Accessed should change?). Even if it is corrupted, it plays
How can I resolve this issue?
I've tried running chkdsk to no avail. It's a 1TB Samsung disk with NTFS.
Summary: I want to copy a file and bypass Windows 7's CRC check or resolve the error.
Note: If any bad sectors are found while running the check disk utility and if attempt recovery of bad sectors option is checked while checking the drive for errors, data in the bad sector may be lost while attempting to recover
Additionally, I’d recommend you run a diagnostic tool downloaded from the hard disk manufacturer’s website and check the disk for errors. Contact Samsung support for further assistance.
