Windows 10 robocopy ERROR 1392 (0x00000570) file or directory is corru

    Windows 10 robocopy ERROR 1392 (0x00000570) file or directory is corru

    I keep all my personal and business data on a 2TB Passport external drive and back up key parts of it daily to two other external drives using robocopy. I've been doing this for years.
    Since I upgraded to Windows 10, however, I keep getting the error I mentioned above (in the subject line). Robocopy complains that some file or directory on the **destination** drive is unreadable, and sure enough, I am unable to delete the file. I've tried both File Assassin and File Unlocker. File Assassin complains that it cannot see the file. File Unlocker claims to delete it, but I still see it in Windows Explorer, even after rebooting. The only way to get rid of the file is to boot in safe mode and delete it.
    Problem is: this keeps reoccurring in different places in the filesystem !!!
    Relevant facts:
    * It occurs on *both* of my backup drives, which suggests to my mind that the problem is not with the backup device.
    * Again, it occurs with different files in different places. There's no detectable pattern as far as location.
    * CHKDSK reports no problems on any of my disks
    * SFC reports no problems on any of my filesystems
    For now, I've settled on the following work-around: I tell robocopy to ignore read errors:
    For EX: robocopy g:\data q:\data /mir /R:0 /W:0
    So now robocopy runs to completion instead of hanging, but it reports FAILURES.
    I am worried about my data and would appreciate guidance and suggestions.

    No. Is Fast Startup known to cause this kind of problem?

    On shutdown, Fast startup does not completely shut down. It goes into a deep Hybrid hibernation state, mainly meaning the Hard drives do not dismount. Disconnecting a hard drive can cause issues with some systems. I would suspect you disconnect your external hard drives often. I am only guessing that this could be your issue or part of it. It is a simple process to try, if you would like to give it a try.

    Also, I wouldn't think it is a robocopy problem. I use robocopy to back up my data frequently and have never had a problem although I use different parameters than you do. I use:
    robocopy E:\users X:\Robocopy_W10_Data /e /mir /np /tee /log:backup_log.txt

    This is a good read and some good info on robocopy

    I rarely unplug these external drives, so it wouldn't be that. I will try disabling Fast Startup. Thanks much for the suggestion.
