doing some house keeping on my XP PC today and i ran chkdsk on my C drive and it gave the following message:

 

Windows found errors on the disk, but will not fix them because disk checking was run without the /F (fix) parameter.
\WINDOWS\system32\freqdb.db-journal first allocation unit is not valid. The entry will be truncated.

 

so i run "chkdsk /f" and on next reboot chkdsk ran but didn't find any errors nor show the above message..If i run chkdsk again it shows the above message again!

 

i'm not sure what file chkdsk is referring to.. the only file beginning with freqdb in the system32 folder is "freqdb.db". if i rename the file to "freqdb2.db" and run chkdsk again it doesn't show the above message (first allocation unit is not valid). i've renamed it back now. system does access the file as the time stamp has changed.

 

i ran "sfc /scannow" and no error is shown (window pops up to say its doing something then after 20 seconds disappears).

 

anyone know how serious this problem is and how to correct it? should i reinstall XP for example? i'm abouts to upgrade to Windows 7 so probably won't want to do that.

Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.
 
Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  List last 10 Event Viewer log
  List Installed Programs
  List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
 
Click Go and paste the content into your next post.
 
Also...please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.

   Go to Piriform's website, and download the free version on the left.  Click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version. You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.

    After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
 
     Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course): p22004369.gif

     Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot. You will see the following prompt:

p22004371.gif

     Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard

p22004372.gif

Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the p22004370.gif button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.

The first issue that I would address...would be the insufficient free space on C:.  General recommendation is that free space on C: should equate to 15% or more of total partition space.  Quite honestly...I don't believe an XP install can run in an optimum manner on a partition less than 15GB, with about 3GB of that being free space.

 

For info on "\WINDOWS\system32\freqdb.db-journal first allocation unit is not valid. The entry will be truncated.", see This Topic .

 

Looks to me like your C: partition is in trouble.

yes you're right. i've been trying to free space on my C drive without much luck. its around 200MB free space but i removed Adobe Reader and installed onto one of my data drives and now i have around 900MB free space. this was after uninstalling a few other programs too, one being an old version of Opera. Then i discovered my anti-virus program (Avira Free Antivirus) update started working whereas before it didn't.

Something does access the file freqdb.db because the time stamp is changing. I tried googling for some info but the only reference i can find is this page! a search for "windows xp freqdb.db" and this page is top of the search results. I wondered if i could delete the file but i think safer not too for now.

my page file (PAGEFILE.SYS) is 1.99GB. I checked my settings and i have it set to "custom" with initial size 2046MB and max 4092MB. think i will change it to "System managed size" and see what difference it makes.

I would definitely back up your files, and do so after the win7 upgrade so you don't lose files.
