  1. There is a file system corruption on either the Crowd installation folder or Home directory.



    Please run the disk check on the Crowd file system containing install and home directories  to confirm whether we have File System Corruption or not: 



With the file system corruption, please:

  • Redeploy the Crowd installation folder by downloading the same version of Crowd Archived.
  • Restore the Crowd home directory from backup
