Consider the following scenario:

  • You restore large data files in an NTFS file system on a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 or Windows Vista.
  • All the sparse data streams of the files are removed.
  • The sparse attribute of the files are not removed.
  • The left sparse attribute information is large enough to exceed the restoring limitation of the NTFS file system.

In this scenario, the restore operation fails, and the data in the data files is lost. Additionally, the following events are logged in the System log:

Event Type: Warning Event Source: Ntfs Event Category: None Event ID: 50 Computer: <Computer name> Description: {Delayed Write Failed} Windows was unable to save all the data for the file. 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.

Additionally, the following event is logged in the Application log:

Event ID: 26 Category: None Source: Application Popup Type: Information Machine : <Computer name> Message: Application popup: Windows - Delayed Write Failed : Windows was unable to save all the data for the file <file name> 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.

  1. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or
    copyright infringement? My website has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but
    it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission.

    Do you know any ways to help prevent content from being ripped
    off? I’d definitely appreciate it.
