I'm really annoyed at this. I tried doing this (http://symantec.atgnow.com/consumer/resultDisplay.do?gotoLink=1436&docType=1000&contextId=7983%3A1436.1500&clusterName=ConsumerCluster&contentId=038afe1c-ffb1-4fef-8274-1cfd330b7bd0&responseId=a7a613d67668be41%3Ab60b93%3A10e9a36c7df %3A-10da&groupId=6&answerGroup=1&score=1165&page=http%3A%2F%2Fservice1.symantec.com%2Fsupport% 2Fpowerquest.nsf%2Fpfdocs%2F2004099566033362&result=0&excerpt=%26quot%3BError+1529%3A+Information+mismat ch+in+directory+entry+%28EA3905F9%29%26quot%3B&resultType=5000#) but it still does the same thing. I'm using Norton PartitionMagic, and it didn't work to use any other's at all, like the one that was on the linux CD which I'm trying to partition for linux, anyways. What should I do?

I'm just gonna do system recovery now, and that'll help.

It apparently can't change some file. If there are system files in there windows wont let it edit them. You'll have to go in and use the attrib command (dos) and take off all attributes. Was there a old OS on that drive?

Nope, just the windows. It's doing system recovery now, so I'll go ahead and see if I need to do attribute stuff.

A file attribute stored in a file record is different from the attribute
stored in its directory entry. If this error is in a system file (file
0–10), Windows NT CHKDSK does not fix it, but Windows NT rebuilds the
root directory on the partition the next time the operating system is
So don't worry :)
