Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
I bought a couple of games in bali and 4 of them arent working i tried xcopy and it gave the cyclic redundancy check error! i tried jfilerecovery but it kept freezing up the discs are basically brand new no scratches and it doesnt make sense
Leo - THANKS so much, your info here was very useful! i am so so glad that i copied the data off the drive as quickly as i did (due to your suggestions)... the drive died totally just before it copied the very last few files off (so i only lost maybe 5% of my files, if that). if i had waited, well... it could have been total disaster.
some other handy options for xcopy, that i found useful in this context:
/E - copy all subfolders too, recursively (and create new folders in the target, even if they are empty)
/I - indicates that the destination (if not definitive) is a (new) folder, not a file.
/H - copy hidden/system files too
so... i guess my next step is to try Spinrite. wish me luck!
cheers and THANKS

too lengthy and very less informative...... better make it as brief as possible ....... and keeping all the details abstract..... so that those who are interestd in reading it completely will click there and understand... not all of them are interested in what is happening..........
I was getting a device i/o error and also sometimes a Data Error (Cyclic Redundancy Check) error when I tried to move or copy certain files from a Maxtor One Touch external hard drive. I did this below and all the error messages stopped and I could move and copy all the files that caused these errors: (WIN XP)
chkdsk e: /r
(e=Maxtor one touch drive).
Had exactly the same situation as your example, copying an outlook.pst file. This didn't work. This time I get "File creation error - Data error (cyclic redundancy check)
i am getting the error when i open mu outlook..if i click new message or search..this error doesnt allow me to do anything plz help
I am using you method to recover some of the bad files on my hard disk. I was snake bitten, my hard drive failed, with numerous CRC errors on pst files (40 and counting). Very time consuming. Went to use my External HDD backup and I dropped it and now the drive us unreadable. Any thoughts on this? I need major help.
The xcopy /c didn't work (always exact same error), but fortunately chkdsk worked like a charm and fixed the file. Thanks!
Leo, I'm having the cyclic redundancy issue running Windows Backup on Windows 7. I'm backing up the main hard drive to an external HD. My question: Does this error message always indicate a problem with the main HD, or could it be a problem with the external HD?
Thanks for this very helpful article.
I always faces problem while Burning a CD. When I burn data to a CD, Cyclic Residency Check starts automatically. Kindly tell me how to fix this problem.
