Serious disk errors are occuring trying to read or write a disk volume (sector not found, general failure, etc.)

Explanation: The system detected an error trying to access a disk volume. The drive letter is specified in the error message and could be a hard disk, floppy disk, mapped network volume, etc.

Diagnosis: This sort of message on a hard disk can mean either file system corruption or bad sectors on the drive. It can also be caused by software or driver bugs, or by running out of system resources under Windows 3.x.
