  1. Windows User corruption help

    Recently i upgraded my PC with a Kingston SSD to act as a boot drive. I got windows running on it and i have the HDD acting as a storage drive.

    My issue is that when i try to go into D:\ > Users > My name it stops me with an error message that reads "File Directory is corrupted and unreadable"

    I have no idea how it could have been corrupted because all i did with it was physically uninstall it for the windows installation process on the SSD.

    I have files and projects for multiple things and i was hoping someone had a solution. Can anyone help me?

  3. I can't create a New User Profile that is Not Corrupt! Please Help!


    I realize the inconvenience you are facing in creating the new user profile on your device. Do not worry we will help you with this issue.

    As a work around, I suggest you to enable the built-in administrator account, log-in with the admin account to create a new user profile and check if you are able to check. This will let us know if the issue persists with user account or the operating system.

    Step 1: Follow the steps to enable Built-in admin account.

    Enable Built-in administrator.

    • Press Windows + X key together on your desktop screen.
    • Click on Command Prompt (admin) to open
      Command Prompt
    • Type the following command and hit Enter:
    • net user administrator /active: yes (Check for the spaces)
    4. Now log off from the current user and try to login to the administrator account that is enabled.  

    Note: Please follow the same steps and type net user administrator /active: no to disable admin account after the troubleshooting is done. 

    Step 2: Refer to the articles to create a test user account/ Microsoft account respectively.

    For Local account: Create a local user account in Windows 10

    For Microsoft account: Help with Microsoft account

    Hope it helps. Get back to us with an updated status of creating new user profile for further assistance.

    Thank you.

    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.
