    Hello,
    I am working on an 8 year old Dell Dimension 2350. When I ran, PM 11 Pro, "Check File System Integrity", I received hundreds of "minor errors" called "latime in index...". It took PM 11 Pro 45 minutes to completely run through the old system's 56 GB "C:" partition just to report to me I had "minor errors." I ran Windows XP's CHKDSK C: /F but nothing changed. I understand these are Last Accessed Time matching errors in the NTFS table.

    I already changed the XP's Registry for this entry:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem, NtfsDisableLastAccessUpdate to 1 so the XP system would speed up a bit more.

    In PM 11 Pro, I also ran Defragment Partition, Defragment MFT, Compact MFT but these didn't work either. Others have already asked this question here. How do I remove these hundreds of "minor errors" called "latime in index..."? If I can't fix these errors and if these "latime" errors do involve last accessed times in the NTFS table, is there a way I can just delete this information since it's probably not important anyway?

    In 2010 and 2011 (11) versions of Paragon products, minor errors are shown by default. These errors could be ignored, they just indicate mismatches in NTFS LOGs.

    In 2009 version, minor errors are not shown for users by default, but they exist.

    Thank you for your reply. Is there any utility which will remove all latime index data from an NTFS partition? Along with the NtfsDisableLastAccessUpdate registry setting, it would be nice if Partition Manager had a feature which fixed and/or erased this data.

    Unfortunately there is no such tool. Minor errors could be ignored. Paragon will also remove them from shown list in next updates.
