Invalid FAT Entries

I apparently have invalid entries in my File Allocation Table. This is according to PGP and Eraser, who both claim I have problems, and subsequently, they cannot function properly.
Eraser says "There was something not quite right with the file system."

PGP says "The file allocation table has invalid entries."

I have done regular as well as thorough/surface scans, in both Windows and DOS.

Any ideas on how to find out, and possibly fix, whatever the problems are?

Try running a Chkdsk on your drive and see what shows.
Chkdsk /f will run a fix.

It says it has not checked the disk for errors and I should use ScanDisk.

I think it's probably because I'm using WinME/FAT32.

Yes, it appears that your file system has some unexpected entries that neither PGP or Eraser can understand. Please let me know when I can come over and debug it for you, and send plane tickets. Or you can just ship me your hard drive and I'll take a look at it for you. Seriously, I'd say it's pretty much impossible to remotely diagnose the problem. I can only hope you get your money back. :wink:

Hello again.

Still no reply.

Why isn't the "admin" guy replying? If he has anything to do with Eraser, surely he would know what this message means.
