What are causes of file system corruption?

Using non-Windows tools to edit the file system. Converting cluster sizes in MSFT with non-MS tools (which crash along the way Big Grin ).
Insider insight: Very high system stress (i.e. caused by MS file system bugs), example: if you place the server under very high I/O and resource load, it can lead to file system corruption under certain circumstances, especially in low RAM situations.
Hence, never ever let a server run low with RAM! Bad things will happen...

Then we have bad disk sectors...and bit rot!!!
