    Hundreds of NTFS ID 55 errors at a time? CHKDSK clean. SMART values all good

    ~~ Q: Hundreds of NTFS ID 55 errors at a time? CHKDSK comes back clean. SMART values all good.
    No other symptoms noticed. Is my SSD dying? SanDisk SDSSDP128G running Windows 7, with full updates.

    ~~ 2018.01.09 Dang! I ran CHKDSK /r on C: this morning at 10am and again about an hour later, I see a series of NTFS ID 55 events at 11am for NTFS Error ID 55. 980 of them. Days later, after I Aligned the SSD, I got almost 8,000 errors all in a row.

    ~~ 2018.01.10 What I did: Researched NTFS ID 55 errors in Event Logs. Ran sfc again, still clean. Ran MalwareBytes, still clean. Checked my Windows Power Settings, which are set to High Performance, meaning Never turn off HD, ssd, but turn OFF Display after 15m. Fine. The SSD has no firmware update available, and was made in 2012 with the latest Firmware v3.2.0. After running CHKDSK and rebooting, chkNTFS c: reported: "The type of the file system is NTFS. C: is not dirty." Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit BETA v1.09.3.1001 and "Scan Finished: No malware found!" Ran Speccy, CrystalDiskInfo7 and SSD-Z and SMART Status was OK. Temp: 35c. TRIM is enabled and working. The only real problem on this SSD is that it is NOT 4k-aligned.

    ~~ 2018.01.11 Running Part Wiz / Align All Partitions. Need to reboot to complete the process. This was after I ran CCleaner and also cleaned cache on Basilisk, which is not covered by CCleaner. ... Rebooted fine. SSD-Z now reports that all partitions aligned. A few hours after this step, I got almost 8,000 NTFS ID 55 errors. So maybe that was a mistake to run at this time.


    ~~ 2018.01.11 Happened again today, after I Aligned the ssd w/MiniTool Partition Wizard. Just before I see the NTFS errors I see these two:

    Info event ID 26 "Application popup: Windows - Corrupt File : Exception Processing Message 0xc0000102 Parameters 0x000007FEFD80819C 0x000007FEFD80819C 0x000007FEFD80819C 0x000007FEFD80819C"

    AND:
    Info Event ID 7036 for the Service Control Manager: "The Windows Modules Installer service entered the running state."

    NOTE: This is the same 2 events that preceded the earlier times when I saw a series of NTFS ID 55 errors. Even just before I saw two lone ID 55 errors, instead of the usual hundreds.

    NOTES: My data is all backed up. My C: SSD has been imaged.

    Hi sleveo. :)

    Is the OS fully updated?
    Launch this command from an elevated command prompt and post the result:
    fsutil fsinfo sectorinfo c:

    Yes, xilolee. SanDisk SDSSDP128G running Windows 7, with full updates.

    Your command did not work on windows 7:
    C:\Windows\system32>fsutil fsinfo sectorinfo c:
    sectorinfo is an invalid parameter.

    C:\Windows\system32>fsutil fsinfo

    I checked the Power settings just in case the SSD was configured to Shut down after 15 minutes. It was not.
    Power Settings Currently set to High Performance, meaning Never turn off HD, ssd, but turn OFF Display after 15m.

    Have we given up on this problem? Or are you still researching?

    Re: Hundreds of NTFS ID 55 errors at a time? CHKDSK clean. SMART values all good

    Try the clean boot:
    • Start, searchbox, type msconfig, press enter.
    • In the new msconfig window, in General tab (default opened tab), click Selective startup and untick/deselect Load startup items.
      Only that one should be unticked, the other two must be ticked.
    • Go to Msconfig Services tab, tick/select Hide all Microsoft services (don't forget to hide them!).
      Disable the remaining NON-windows services.
      (i.e., DON'T disable windows services)
    • Click ok, reboot

    Re: Hundreds of NTFS ID 55 errors at a time? CHKDSK clean. SMART values all good

    I changed from the SSD to the backup HDD with the same issue. So it's not related to SSD.
    I think it started when I was working out Windows Update problems with softwaremaniac.

    ~~ 2018.01.15 So today, on waking from rest after an hour on Performance 15, 0, 20, I got new rash of NTFS, ID 55 errors 978 of them. ~~ Q: Wonder if it depends how long I keep it in rest mode? Seems unlikely as all the errors occur within a minute. ... I changed Power options / Change plan settings / Change Advanced power setting / Hard disk / Turn OFF disk after: 20-0, which it translates to Never. ... When I woke from Performance 15,0, 0, meaning 15 screen OFF, Never Sleep, Never OFF HDD, I got NO NTFS errors. So I've confirmed that I can hack/fix it. I also tried to replicate error on DalePC with same settings? Nothing, I failed to replicate the error on another PC. Can't replicate on DalePC. ~~ Q: What happens when I put my DalePC to sleep and wake with Performance settings of 15, 0, 20? ~~ Q: What happens when I return to normal Balanced 10, 30, 20 on Asus? Starting 12:55-2:30p. Nothing. No errors when on Balanced. Wonder if it only happens once a day? ~~ Q: What happens when I put it back on Performance 15, 0, 20?




    ~~ 2018.01.16 Test sleep mode, now that I changed it from Performance to Balanced (which threw no NTFS errors yesterday) and back to Performance in Power Options. I believe I can stop the ID 55 errors by simply never turning off the disk, but that's a workaround. I'm hoping that just changing settings from Performance to Balanced and back to Performance will do it. Start: 8:30a - 12. But at 9am, I see hundreds of NTFS errors 654 of them. Then at 2pm, after another sleep cycle with nothing changed, I see no additional errors. I suspect it only happens once a day, perhaps related to Windows Update, and sure enough there is one update available.

    ~~ 2018.01.16 So I did configs for Clean Boot as suggested by SysNative, and will reboot tomorrow. Will post those results.
