Initialization failed

Hi

My computer froze this morning right after booting, so I had to reboot. During the reboot Windows XP checked the disk for errors and encountered and fixed some in the Awasu folder.
Now I can't start Awasu. I get this error message:
Initialization failed. Disk I/O error (rc=10).

I have tried re-installing Awasu (both without and with uninstalling first) and I have also ran a system recovery, but none of it makes any difference.

What to do?

Thanks

This looks like a corruption in the search index. Delete everything in the <tt>Index</tt> sub-directory and restart Awasu. If you want to use the search index, you can rebuild it using the ADMIN.EXE tool.

This is strange. When I go to C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR-NAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Awasu\ the only things there are:
build.info
admin.log (which is empty).

There's no index subfolder there at all!

You've been using Awasu for quite a while, probably from before it started putting its data files in this directory. Previously, everything was stored in the <tt>Users</tt> sub-directory under the installation directory (i.e. <tt>C:\Program Files\Awasu\Users\YOUR-NAME</tt> and so it will continue to use those existing files if they are already there.

I'm awaiting your further suggestions...

Thanks

Hmm, it should never happen but this message seems to be complaining about a corruption in the archive database, Delete your <tt>archive.db</tt> file and restart Awasu. It will create a new one for you, although you will lose your archived content.

Oh, I'm good at creating things that should never happen... :wink:
This helped - thank you!
