    Windows Backup would skip files because they are "corrupted" but they still work fine?


    I was doing Windows backup because I had an issue I want to solve, but don't want to lose the entire system while doing so. But when the backup is finished, Windows told me that they skipped some files because they are corrupted, and gave me a log file:


    Windows Backup skipped C:\ because is it on corrupted drive C:\.

    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\arthu\Documents because is it on corrupted drive C:\.

    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\arthu\OneDrive\Documents because is it on corrupted drive C:\.

    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\arthu\Music because is it on corrupted drive C:\.

    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\arthu\OneDrive\Music because is it on corrupted drive C:\.

    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\arthu\Pictures because is it on corrupted drive C:\.

    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\arthu\OneDrive\Pictures because is it on corrupted drive C:\.

    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\arthu\Videos because is it on corrupted drive C:\.

    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\arthu\AppData\Roaming because is it on corrupted drive C:\.

    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\arthu\AppData\Local because is it on corrupted drive C:\.

    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\arthu\AppData\LocalLow because is it on corrupted drive C:\.

    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\arthu\Contacts because is it on corrupted drive C:\.

    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\arthu\Desktop because is it on corrupted drive C:\.

    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\arthu\Downloads because is it on corrupted drive C:\.

    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\arthu\Favorites because is it on corrupted drive C:\.

    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\arthu\Links because is it on corrupted drive C:\.

    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\arthu\Saved Games because is it on corrupted drive C:\.

    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\arthu\Searches because is it on corrupted drive C:\.




    But every file in the mentioned directories seem to work fine? I can open all pictures, all documents, games, downloads, etc.

    This might be related to the problem but I want to try and fix the system as chkdsk and dfrgui broke after I installed and still persists after I uninstalled VALORANT. Check disk will always run on every startup and the Disk Defragmenter won't even open.


    I'm currently on Windows 10 1909 if that helps. Will this issue persist when I update to say, 2004?

    Reinstalling Windows fresh is not an option for me.

    :)

  2. Corrupted file RAR

    If the archive has been created using WinRAR, why don't you try WinRAR itself? It has a built-in repair feature for repairing corrupted archive (ZIP as well as RAR). Follow the steps given below:
    • Open WinRAR application in your system.
    • Now click on File tab > Open or simply press Ctrl+O.
    • A small window "Find Archive" will pop up. Locate the corrupt RAR archive from your system directory and select it.
    • Now click Open button.
    • Click Tools tab > Repair archive or simply press Alt+R.
    • Again a small window "Repairing File name.rar" will pop up.
    • Now click Browse to select a location to save the repaired archive.
    • Check the box "Treat the corrupt archive as RAR" and click OK.
    • WinRAR will start repairing of corrupt RAR archive. Once it gets completed click Close.
    I hope the above steps will help you repair the corrupted RAR archive.

    Thanks.

    Windows Backup would skip files because they are "corrupted" but they still work fine?

    Microsoft Windows Home Server Corrupts Files

    Microsoft has warned Windows Home Server users not to edit files stored on their backup systems with several of its programs, including Vista Photo Gallery and Office's OneNote and Outlook, as well as files generated by popular finance software such as Quicken and QuickBooks. "When you use certain programs to edit files on a home computer that uses Windows Home Server, the files may become corrupted when you save them to the home server," Microsoft said in a support document posted last week. The document went on to list the software, which includes Windows Vista Photo Gallery, Windows Live Photo Gallery, OneNote 2003, OneNote 2007, Outlook 2007, Microsoft Money 2007 and SyncToy 2.0 Beta. Others programs, however, may also corrupt files stored on a home server powered by Microsoft's operating system. "Additionally, there have been customer reports of issues with Torrent applications, with Intuit Quicken and with QuickBooks program files," the document said. "Until an update for Windows Home Server is available, we recommend that [you] do not use the programs that are listed to save or to edit program-specific files that are stored on a Windows Home Server-based system."
