How to Handle File Indexing Corruption in Microsoft Windows 7

Partition Recovery

Microsoft Dynamics on Ulitzer

File Indexing is an allegedly useful feature of Microsoft Windows operating system. It extracts critical information from files on hard disk and creates the “searchable keyword index” that Is used for making the file search more efficient. Using file indexing service, you can easily searching for a phrase, properly or word in a document, even without knowing name of the file that you want. In some situations, the indexing of file may get damaged and may access all your files inaccessible from Windows hard drive partition. In such cases, you need to opt for Windows Partition Recovery to get your valuable files recovered from affected Windows partition.

In a practical scenario, where you install Microsoft Windows 7 on RAID 0 partition With MS Windows XP on second partition as dual-boot. The setup process goes fine and all the partitions appear functioning properly. When you try to access files in such configuration through My Computer or Windows Explorer, file indexing might get damaged. Operating system detects damage and it cycles though disk repair tool upon reboot. Disk repair tool find corruption in several indexing files and the process goes on and on. In such cases, you need to find out the cause of this issue and perform Partition Recovery to retrieve files from Windows hard drive partitions.

There are four possible solutions that you can try to fix such issues. That include:

The problem might be caused by bad sectors on Windows hard drive. Run hard disk diagnostics utility, which hardware vendor might supply. Perform a health test of your system. RAID 0 doesn't provide redundancy, thus if any disk partition is failing, you should create complete backup of your data.

Verify that system hardware are working properly. The problem may occur due to corruption to RAID array, on which Windows 7 is installed.

Checking integrity and consistency of hard drive using Chkdsk tool. If Chkdsk find errors and can not fix them, the problem could be quite serious. After you verify that array and hardware are functional, boot system in clean boot state.

Perform absolute scan of your hard drive for viruses and other malicious infections using an updated and advanced anti-virus software.

When all else fails, format your hard drive and perform clean reinstallation of Windows 7. Although, this method fixes all the disk related issues but also remove all disk partitions and need Partition Recovery Software to sort out the problem.

Windows Partition Recovery applications are particularly designed to carry out in-depth scan of entire hard drive and extract all of the lost hard drive partitions and stored data. The tools have quite interactive and rich graphical user interface and thus let you carry out Do It Yourself recovery.
