NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM

The NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM bug check has a value of 0x00000024. This indicates a problem occurred in ntfs.sys, the driver file that allows the system to read and write to NTFS drives.

Important

This topic is for programmers. If you are a customer who has received a blue screen error code while using your computer, see Troubleshoot blue screen errors.

NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM Parameters

Parameter Description

1

Specifies source file and line number information. The high 16 bits (the first four hexadecimal digits after the "0x") identify the source file by its identifier number. The low 16 bits identify the source line in the file where the bug check occurred.

2

If NtfsExceptionFilter is on the stack, this parameter specifies the address of the exception record.

3

If NtfsExceptionFilter is on the stack, this parameter specifies the address of the context record.

4

Reserved

Cause

One possible cause of this bug check is disk corruption. Corruption in the NTFS file system or bad blocks (sectors) on the hard disk can induce this error. Corrupted hard drive (SATA/IDE) drivers can also adversely affect the system's ability to read and write to disk, thus causing the error.

Resolution

To debug this problem: Use the .cxr (Display Context Record) command with Parameter 3, and then use kb (Display Stack Backtrace).

To resolve a disk corruption problem:

  • Check Event Viewer for error messages related to the hard drive appearing in the System Log that might help pinpoint the device or driver that is causing the error.

  • Try disabling any virus scanners, backup programs, or disk defragmenter tools that continually monitor the system.

  • You should also run hardware diagnostics supplied by the system manufacturer related to the storage sub system.

  • Use the scan disk utility to confirm that there are no file system errors. Select and hold (or right-click) on the drive you want to scan and select Properties. Select Tools. Select the Check now button.

  • Confirm that there is sufficient free space on the hard drive. The operating system and some applications require sufficient free space to create swap files and for other functions. Based on the system configuration, the exact requirement varies, but it is normally a good idea to have 10% to 15% free space available.

  • Use the System File Checker tool to repair missing or corrupted system files. The System File Checker is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files. Use the following command to run the System File Checker tool (SFC.exe).

    SFC /scannow

  • Driver Verifier

    Driver Verifier is a tool that runs in real time to examine the behavior of drivers. If it see errors in the execution of driver code, it proactively creates an exception to allow that part of the driver code to be further scrutinized. The driver verifier manager is built into Windows and is available on all Windows PCs. To start the driver verifier manager, type Verifier at a command prompt. You can configure which drivers you would like to verify. The code that verifies drivers adds overhead as it runs, so try and verify the smallest number of drivers as possible. For more information, see Driver Verifier.

In the past, another possible cause of this stop code is depletion of nonpaged pool memory. If the nonpaged pool memory is completely depleted, this error can stop the system. However, during the indexing process, if the amount of available nonpaged pool memory is very low, another kernel-mode driver requiring nonpaged pool memory can also trigger this error.

About “What is” service

Many of users are faced with the problem of interpreting errors that occur during the work of operating systems. In some cases, the operating system reports that an error has occurred and displays only an integer error code value. Often it is difficult to even roughly understand the cause of the error from the information given out. Our “what is” service contains a database of errors in Windows, Linux, Macos and Solaris operating systems. The database contains tens of thousands of values. In most cases, the online service will be able to help with the definition of the short name of the error and its detailed description.

Categories

Current version of service supports following types of error and status codes:

NTSTATUSMany kernel-mode standard driver routines and driver support routines use the NTSTATUS type for return values. Additionally, drivers provide an NTSTATUS-typed value in an IRP’s IO_STATUS_BLOCK structure when completing IRPs. The NTSTATUS type is defined in Ntdef.h, and system-supplied status codes are defined in Ntstatus.h.
Win32 errorWin32 error codes MUST be in the range 0x0000 to 0xFFFF, although Win32 error codes can be used both in 16-bit fields (such as within the HRESULT type specified in section 2.1) as well as 32-bit fields. Most values also have a default message defined, which can be used to map the value to a human-readable text message; when this is done, the Win32 error code is also known as a message identifier.
HRESULTHRESULT is a data type used in Windows operating systems, and the earlier IBM/Microsoft OS/2 operating system, to represent error conditions, and warning conditions.
The original purpose of HRESULTs was to formally lay out ranges of error codes for both public and Microsoft internal use in order to prevent collisions between error codes in different subsystems of the OS/2 operating system.
HRESULTs are numerical error codes. Various bits within an HRESULT encode information about the nature of the error code, and where it came from.
HRESULT error codes are most commonly encountered in COM programming, where they form the basis for a standardized COM error handling convention.
HTTP Status CodeHypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) response status codes. Status codes are issued by a server in response to a client’s request made to the server. It includes codes from IETF Request for Comments (RFCs), other specifications, and some additional codes used in some common applications of the HTTP. The first digit of the status code specifies one of five standard classes of responses. The message phrases shown are typical, but any human-readable alternative may be provided.
errnoInteger value, which is returned by system calls and some library functions in the event of an error to indicate what went wrong. errno is defined by the ISO C standard to be a modifiable lvalue of type int, and must not be explicitly declared; errno may be a macro. errno is thread-local; setting it in one thread does not affect its value in any other thread.
Kern ReturnApple Kernel return codes.
Ipp StatusThe IppStatus constant enumerates the status values returned by the Intel IPP functions, indicating
whether the operation is error-free.

Source code

The service is based on the open source library AllStat. Its sources are available on our git server. We will be grateful for your participation in the finalization of the library and ideas for the development of the service. You can also download ErrorLookup utility and libraries from our site.
