"Windows was unable to save all the data for the file C:\$Extend\$UsnJrnl:$J. The data has been lost. This error may be caused by a failure of your computer hardware or network connection. Please try to save this file elsewhere"

I was running a disk fragment on my C: Drive when I came back an hour later and all hell had broken loose. Running XP SP2. Message pops up in the taskbar every 30 secs.

Do the following:

Start
Control Panel
Performance and Maintenace
Admin Tools
Event Viewer
System

Highlight a error then click properties, then click on the link below For more information, see Help and Support Center as this may give you information on how to solve the error.

It may be your hdd is faulty, run the hdd manufacturers diagnositc utility on the drive.

HDD Regenerator try running this tool on the drive it will give you a indication of whether the drive can be recovered. I've recovered drives with bad sectors by doing a complete zero wipe.

A delayed write failure isn't too good and normal indicates a major problem esp when it's your C drive.

I backed everything up and will do a zero write. I read about this issue on a few other boards and found that the only people who really did solve the problem did just that.

Problem solved. The zero write and a format and reinstalltion of XP seems to have worked. Hopefully I won't need to do another one for quite a while.
