Error copying file: Data error (cyclic redundancy check). CRC Scan ?

Q: Error copying file: Data error (cyclic redundancy check). CRC Scan ?

Edit: Think my hard drive may be failing and was the cause of my file synchronizing crash. I use it mostly to stream music and video and access the hard drive a lot. Any advice thanks

HDDStatus - Tool to check hard disk status, health and reliability


I've been using GoodSync for the past couple of months to chain synchronize 3 hard disk drives and ran into my first issue today. GoodSync stopped responding whilst synchronizing changes to files so I used task manager to manually end the process.

I'm not entirely sure how much damage has been caused but when I re-analyzed the file changes a lot of the changes prior to the crash was no longer listed.. So I'm unsure of the file integrity but have so far noticed some music video files are corrupt with cyclic redundancy check errors but is not easily visible to check corrupt files because they still play but parts of data are missing.

I think I've experienced cyclic redundancy check errors before when my external hard drive fell flat on it's side whilst it was playing music (3 years ago). It took me a long time to filter out the bad files because all the mp3 files worked but some songs would randomly play in others etc.. is their some type of automated CRC scanner or method to check all my files ?


Preferred Solution: Error copying file: Data error (cyclic redundancy check). CRC Scan ?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I copied some files from my old HP laptop with xp, burnt them with burnaware onto a dvd. Now on my new laptop (lenovo g580 W7 64bit) I tried to take them off the DVD and move to my local drive, when I was moving them from disc to drive explorer gave me a message saying 'Invalid MS-dos function' and the usual try again or cancel option.
Thinking some of the files on disc might be corrupt I ran
xcopy F:\*.*/s > C:\test1
And got the message in my topic title File creation error - Data error (cyclic redundancy check).
Now I don't have clue what this means and I can only tell you I have an output file in C, as per the command instructions, with almost all the files listed, some are missing but some of the ones there are the corrupt ones and some of the ones missing I think are fine.
Doesn't really lead me to the issue unless someone can decipher the error message I got?

Recently I've been getting this message. Originally a game started crashing when it was opened, I tried uninstalling it, but certain files couldn't be removed due to cyclic redundancy. I then tried deleting the files/folders manaully but it just stalls (and causes computer lagging) and eventually comes up with the message in the title.
While it stalls I can hear the hard drive trying to access the files. I have previously gotten this message when trying to access files off a DVD but this is the first time its happened with files off the hard drive.
I also had to reboot my PC because the lagging was so bad, when it restarted windows had reset to its default settings, i.e. desktop pitcture, sound settings, folder settings etc. Luckily all folders except my desktop folder have not been affected.

What can I do to fix this problem?
I've reset windows to the way I like it, but I want access to these folders so I can sort them out.

This topic has probably been brought up many times before, but has there ever been a fix for the common copying error, "Data Error: Cyclic Redundancy Check"?

I know there can be many variations of the problem depending on where the data is being copied from and to, but I seem to have have found where the source of my problem is. I have been copying files (copy and paste) from 2 different makes of DVD onto my computer's main hard drive. The makes of DVD are both TDK DVD-R: an older style make with darker blue labels on the disks, and the current make of TDK DVD-R which has light blue labels.

Every time I copy files from the older style DVDs, I get the "Data Error: Cyclic Redundancy Check" notice which stops me from copying any more files from the disc. However, when I copy files from the current make of TDK DVD-R disks, all files are copied without any problems.

Is there a solution to this problem? Can the data from the older style of disks still be copied somehow? I find it strange how the error appears when copying from one make of disk, and doesn't appear when copying from the other. Any advice would be appreciated.

A:Cyclic Redundancy Check error when copying from DVDs to hard drive

When you say older "style", do you mean the disks are actually of greater age? Disks can certainly deteriorate with age. Do the same disks give CRC errors on another computer?

Hi guys,

I have WesternDigital Blue 1TB harddrive in raw format and I cant recover data nor format it.


A:How to fix data error cyclic redundancy check

Your system specifications show a laptop.

But this seems to be an internal drive on a desktop.

If it is indeed an internal drive on a desktop, forthwith disconnect your faulty drive to prevent it keep spinning till you decide what you want to do with it.

Was it working alright in the desktop before and for how long?

When did it become RAW and for how long it remained connected after becoming RAW?

Do you want to format it now? ( I am asking this question because you tried formatting it.) I shall see your answers only tomorrow morning after 11 hours from now since it is already bedtime for me.

My pc crashed on yesterday and was unable to boot into window as it required to run chkdsk and i found a lot file record segments were unreadable or corrupted. I changed the hardisk, installed a new os and then tried to back up some important files from the crashed hardisk but some was not able to transfer as a message pop-out stating data error: (cyclic redundancy check), my questions are :

1) Can those files under the data error to be recovered?

2) I read about the cause of it but is there any way to prevent from happening?

3) Is the hardisk still can be used?

I would be very appreciated if someone could help me out with this matter...

The harddrive sounds to be physically faulty
Therefore the data is probably corrupted in those sectors

My HP Pro 4321s notebook (with Windows 7 Professional 32-bit installed) failed to boot up. 

As I did not backup the data files (this notebook was used for only a few months), I disconnected the notebook hard disk and installed it to an external disk case (SATA interface to connect my notebook harddisk and USB 2.0 interface for connection to other
PC or notebook's USB port).
After I connected this external disk to another notebook (windows 7 Professional 64-bit), a pop-up window asking me to run CHKDSK for SYSTEM (F:) appeared.  Therefore, I answered 'YES' to dismount the volume and proceed.  After CHKDSK
had finished for this drive F: , it showed file rec segment 96-99 unreadable. The CHKDSK report was then displayed.

Then, another pop-up window appeared :  Drive G:\  You need to format the disk drive before you can use it.  Do you want to format it ?

I replied 'No' and Message : 'Error :  G:\ is not accessible.  Data error (cyclic redundancy check)' was displayed.
The factory hard disk contains 3 drives : one is C:\, one is HP Recovery, one is HP_Tools and a hidden 'SYSTEM'.
The explorer could only showed properties of HP Recovery and HP_Tools.  'SYSTEM' properties could only be seen before I replied 'Y' to dismount the volume to proceed CHKDSK.

I just started to get this error message.

I am running a Win98 machine and receiving the error when printing on hy HP PSC 2210 printer. I recently started to use a TRENDnet 4-Port Bus-Power USB Hub (my PC only has two USB ports) and I was having no problems printing at all until just now. I did some research and found some solutions (ie turning off the printer, unplugging the usb cable, restarting, plugging in the USB cable, turning on the printer) but that did not seem to work. When I disconnect the hub and plug the printer in directly to the USB port I can print fine....so obviously the problem is with the hub.

Any ideas and also why it did work but now causes me problems.

I guess I should go out and buy a powered USB hub, but the ones I have seen don't seem to support Win98.

Any ideas?

A:Solved: Data error (Cyclic redundancy check)

A cyclic redundancy check means the computer can't read the data off the media. Typically this happens with optical media but also happens with HDD or other magnetic media once and awhile as well. If it's on a CD/DVD try cleaning the disc and the laser lens. If it's a magnetic media use check disc to repair any errors and try again. If that doesn't work then you can try a more aggressive recovery program.

Why are you doing all of those unnecessary steps instead of just booting the Win7 installation media to delete all partitons and then create New and Format using the drive options pictured in Steps 7/8 of Clean Install Windows 7? Nothing more is needed unless troubleshooting install failure.

If you did a secure erase using DBAN that is overkill intended to overwrite data to make it unrecoverable by forensics software. It is also hard on the drive.

Try now booting the Win7 installer to create the partitions. If the error repeats run the HD maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD test, followd by Disk Check from the installer's Command Line in System Recovery Options

so earlier in the year my OS hard drive crashed, and I haven't had time to work on the problem until now. (Seagate Baracuda 3.5" 500GB 7200rpm, running Win7)

I docked the HDD and plugged it into my girlfriend's laptop with a USB cable, and the drive shows up under Disk Management, but there aren't any options for mounting or formatting.

I tried running DBAN from boot, but I get non-fatal errors and the program won't run. (It runs fine with other drives)

My biggest concern isn't getting information from the drive because I was only using it (primarily) to boot from and to store my programs. No, my concern is whether or not I can salvage the drive and re-use it. I'm not that interested in buying (another) hard drive.

So I guess what I'm asking is for a litter direction and advise. All is appreciated.
Thank you very much,
