How to fix ‘Cyclic Redundancy Check’ error

Cyclic Redundancy Check is an operation that the system uses to examine the storage mediums - hard drives or optical disks. Put simply, CRC is the calculations made for assuring that the information being transferred is not damaged. If you receive the notification with this error, then there is some data that is found to be corrupted while checking.

Cyclic Redundancy Check error

Luckily, this not equals to the loss of information. Moving data is usually being divided into small parts and each of them gets a CRC value. In case the transfer went wrong, CRC index at the destination point will be different from the initial one, and it will be indicated by the error message.

Typically, the CRC error can be seen during attempts to get data from a defective CD/DVD. Less common causes include system instabilities, software imperfections and incomplete downloads. For errors with optical disks it can also be hardware issues resulting from a malfunctioning drive.
