Corrupted Data(Video Game)
« on: July 25, 2008, 03:03:53 AM »
Ok the other day I go and play some random game on my PS2. When I load a save file it says "Error, this file is corrupted". Has anyone ever gotten this before and doesn't this tick you off.  >:(

I've had it and it's really annoying. And it means some of the 8MB on your memory card just vanishes. I had a 564 KB game get corrupted and the corrupted data only held up 7 KB. On my 8MB memory card if i deleted everything i'd have 5MB of space to save in.

As far as i'm aware you can get it 4 ways. When you're saving it says do not remove memory card 8MB in memory card slot 1, remove controller or reset/switch off the console. If you do do any of those things there is a chance the game data could be corrupted.

Corrupted data. Usually you cannot delete it. But you can delete corrupted data and even format whole Memory Card with ARMAX or other cheating devices.

I didn't need armax or cheat device. I just went onto memory card screen and saw the corrupted data and deleted it like i would delete game data. It still destroys space on the memory card but it's more convenient to delete it.

i have never had this happened to me before, if the data gets corrupted i guess its gone for good that why you should always keep 2 saves incase one messes up

Destroys space...?


Lemme ask something totally off-topic/on-topic:

What if that happened to your computer? The reason why I'm asking is because I did a system restore (using the discs etc. etc.) after I got a virus. First I had only 38Gigs on my harddrive (Yes.. lousy computer -.-), about 27Gigs actually being used. Now, after I system restored, my computer was totally new! Except for the fact that those 27Gigs of space were still being used, and I only had like 11Gigs left, even though nothing on my computer was using up 27 Gigs.

Would that mean that my space was actually deleted? And.. I didn't think that was possible.. but it's because of that that I didn't buy a TV Tuner, therefore my vids on youtube are lousy quality =/

Oh.. and just to be on topic:

I was loading up my PS2 game "NFL Street 3" few weeks ago, and it said the Saved Settings were corrupted when it tried to load it, which struck me as odd, so I went and deleted it, and saved new Settings for that game and it never happened again. Luckily it was only the settings and not anything else!

Download this program: http://www.ccleaner.com/ it should free up the disk space.

Thanks, but that only freed up like 16Mb.


I had this other program that shows you what's using up all your space






As you can see, it says that my computer has about 38 or so Gigs of space on the drive, yet 35 Gigs are being used, yet for some reason it can only show you what I'm using (about 15 Gigs I think..?), but it doesn't show the other 23 Gigs.

I've long given up trying, and decided that I'll get a TV Tuner if this problem is fixed or if I get a new computer.



In any case, I'm most likely being off-topic, so if anyone has a solution in mind please PM me instead of posting here, I don't want to get me or anyone in trouble  ;)

corrupted data happened once on my Guitar Hero III file.....500th place in the world on expert and my scored get deleted >.<


also:

my friend has a problem where he keeps losing space..as an example:

the ENTIRE harddrive is 30GB...10 are used by required files and such.

so he has 20GB. but it says he has 2,000MB of free space. he uninstalls and deletes a program that takes 80MB and now he only has 2,10MB of free space. he can't figure out where the other 70MB went. every time he does it one of two things happens:

1) He gets around 10-20% of the space back that he SHOULD get
2) he actually LOSES space by deleting something.

what could be wrong??

I get corrupted data alot its mostly when Ive cleared my memory card from things that I either down play or dont own anymore

This entails always make extra copys of saves
