    File system error (-2147219200)


    This morning, I downloaded a few files to my computer and when I tried to open them, there was a long pause and then the message "File system error (-2147219200)". The computer, an ASUS laptop running Windows 10, had been working normally until then.

    I ran "check" on both the C: and D: logical drives (they are the same physical drive) and all was well. I went to try to open a command prompt so that I could run "chkdsk /r /f" but the WindowsKey+X didn't produce any results let alone the menu offering me a command prompt that I was expecting. I tried to type cmd in the Cortana search box but couldn't type in there. I tried to reboot the computer but the Windows icon doesn't react when I click on it.

    I began to think that I had some kind of malware so spent most of the day running a full MalwareBytes scan which apparently found nothing. (After over 5 hours it hadn't found any infections but then it rebooted and presumably ran the rootkit scans I'd asked for while I was eating dinner and then rebooted again. I'm not sure where to find its final report.)

    I have no idea what's going on or why but I'd love to get that computer working normally again - I'm on a different one now - so that I can get back to the development work I've been wanting to do all day long.

    Can anyone suggest a way to diagnose my problem definitively and solve it?

    Is this the same information as in the BSOD section of this Forum? If so, follow that one, not nice to double post.

    Really? Somebody at BSOD told me I was in the wrong forum and should be here. I copied my post over to here, as requested, and now you're giving me heck for doing what they asked?

    My bad, most times a file system error causes some type of BSOD or GSOD.

    As a matter of fact, I *have* had a BSOD (or maybe two) on that same computer this past summer but didn't do anything at the time; I was in the middle of something and wanted to get back to it so I just rebooted and it worked fine afterwards - until now. Unfortunately, I don't remember anything about those BSODs, especially the error codes, so they're not much help unless the system has archived useful information somewhere....
