SYMPTOMS

On a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008, you try to access a file on an NTFS volume that contains a non-resident TXF_DATA attribute. However, the NTFS file system reports a file corruption error. Additionally, when you run the Chkdsk.exe utility to check the affected volume for problems, Chkdsk.exe does not detect and fix the corruption. Therefore, the application that uses the file does not run correctly.

This problem may occur in either of the following situations:
  • You create and manipulate an NTFS volume on a non-Windows-based operating system, such as Linux.
  • You use imaging tools to re-image a Windows-based operating system on a non-Windows-based operating system, such as Linux.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because the NTFS file system does not recognize the non-resident TXF_DATA attribute. When you operate NTFS volume by using a non-Windows-based operating system, the resident TXF_DATA attribute may unexpectedly change to non-resident attribute.
