Summary0000584: File corruption with ExifTool
DescriptionSometimes, when I'm saving the new metadata to the files, I receive a message saying: "ExifTool - Corrupt File".
The file is correctly saved and doesn't repeat the error message, but my Windows marks the disk for Chkdsk, that is run on the next reboot.
Additional InformationI'm using Windows7 Ultimate 64-bit on a Toshiba Portégé M800 (Centrino Core2 Duo) and exiftool 8.22.
TagsNo tags attached.

GeoSetter uses ExifTool ( for saving the data. So this is a message from ExifTool. In my opinion there are perhaps 2 reasons for this: Your Harddiks where you temp folder is located is maybe nearly full or it is damaged. Please try to empty your temp folder, perhaps this will solve the problem...

Friedemann, thanks for the feedback. There's a while since I saw this message. The disk is not full (over 50% free) and exiftool was the only application generating corruption tags for CHKDSK. Maybe it was some interaction with Kaspersky Internet Security. I tweaked a few things and I think it made a difference. Thanks again.
