    Hello and welcome to the forum.
    Perform a chkdsk on the Drive where the files are being stored.
    chkdsk C: /R
    answer "Y" = yes when prompted
    reboot the computer and wait for all five stages to complete
    check the results in event viewer.
    You may also want to perform a memory diagnostic
    Those are the two most likely culprits for file corruption, although I would expect more broader problems, even with your OS files if it is hosted on the same drive as the files where you are experiencing the corruption.
    Regards
    Randy

    I only posted 30 minutes ago.
    I would think that it might have taken longer than 30 minutes to perform a complete check disc of the drive hosting those files, not to mention hours it should take to run MemTest86+ properly to assess the condition of your RAM.
