-1127 error on XP Professional backup


Recommended Posts

Got the following during backup on XP Professional system that's been working fine for months. Backup set is on CD-R.



Scanning incomplete, error -1127 (data error detected in file using cyclic redundancy check)


Error number is not documented anywhere.



a) catalog is corrupt and needs to be rebuilt, or

B) file system/disk corrupt, i.e. chkdsk time, or

c) ???

I had to reboot the PC for other reasons. When it restarted, the OS started a disk scan. Once this completed, the Retrospect problem went away.


I found a Web page with error numbers (of course it stopped at 1126 :-)) but most of the 1100 error messages seem related to source volume errors.


I'm assuming a disk hiccup.


Thanks for suggestions.
