The Sophos Community will be unavailable from 13:00 to 18:00 UTC this Saturday, October 1st for upgrades. Stay tuned to our Twitter account @SophosSupport for updates.
The following error message is reported to Enterprise Console by the affected computer:
Error a01e0004 - Rootkit scan has been cancelled due to corrupt disk
Description This error typically indicates that a timeout has been reached when scanning, rather than the disk being corrupt.
First seen in Sophos Anti-Virus for Windows 2000+
If the same error is generated again, you should investigate what else may be running on the machine at the same time as the scan. Other concurrently running tasks that could cause this to occur are disk defragmentation tasks.
