What can be done to solve this error?


If this error occurs, the preliminaries for the installation of SafeGuard Easy (SGE) did not succeed. One reason may be, that due to a full hard disk, chkdsk did not start although it was planned in the installation script.

The only solution is to uninstall SGE and run the preliminaries again (see article 107084 for more information).

After that you will be able to reinstall SGE successfully.
