Hello,
long time no see.

Anyway, I am concerned as I've received this message several times now, when attempting to save a .JPG image in Photoshop CS4 to my D: partition.

The message I receive is:
"D:path\of\image.jpg
The disk structure is corrupted and unreadable
"

I managed to 'dodge' this with chkdsk. I chose to run it on the next PC restart, and once it had finished and I was inside of Windows, I could save files from Photoshop to D: again. However, after saving 3-4 JPG files, the message popped-up again..

I am defragmentating my disk now, but I'd like to have some professional advice and guidance here.

Thank you very much in advance and best regards.
Chris

Re: The disk structure is corrupted and unreadable

Indeed, it is the same system.

I have attached the necessary files. Thank you always, jcgriff.

Edit: Attachement also included to post.

Re: The disk structure is corrupted and unreadable

It is difficult for me to determine now, as my HDD has been somewhat cleaned with chkdsk (automatically) today, when I booted my PC. I can save to D: and C: without any issues.

Can I try anything else to help you help me?

Re: The disk structure is corrupted and unreadable

chkdsk does not 'clean' a disk it checks for bad areas and marks such sectors as unusable.

It sounds as if your issue is solved since you can save to d:

Am I missing some other issue here?

Well, if chkdsk does not clean a disk, but only checks for errors and marks them, I guess my problem has been solved. I can save without any errors now.

I'd like to ask, though: was this fixed due to the defragmentation of my HDD (I used Defraggler, as always) or did something else fix the problem?

Regards.

Re: The disk structure is corrupted and unreadable

CS4 does produce some huge files. It very well may have been looking for contiguous space on the hard drive, or at the very least it may not like/permit fragmented files to be "too fragmented"; not sure.

You bring up a very good point here.

If I come upon any additional info, I'll post on it.
