c:\bootmgr is corrupt - unable to fix

Hi, using ZipMagic 16.6, I am unable to recompress because of disk error. I have done chkdsk and fixed all possible problems. I have also done the Check function in ZipMagic --- it keeps reporting that there is 1 error, and trying to fix it stops with "1 error remaining" and lists c:\bootmgr. I have tried in safe mode also.

Is there anyway to get ZipMagic to reboot and check --- like recompress. I suspect that's what I need to do? Or is there some other ways to fix this?

This is a safety measure designed to prevent you from recompressing your disk if there's any issues detected at all.

Have you run chkdsk c: /scan on your disk? Please paste its output here.

Then, run it again, and paste its output again.

Sometimes, Windows fixes disk errors, but they are still present when you do a rescan!

If that is the case, you would need to escalate the issue to Microsoft.

We currently don't offer a way to bypass the disk check for your own safety.

Edit: Sorry for the late reply!
