Windows 7: Corrupt File Error Message...

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit
Corrupt File Error Message...

Hi guys. This is the first time I have a problem like this, but when I was trying to install a game today I got a error message at an early time during the installation that a file was corrupt. Here's the message: The following error occurred on the file 'E:/' the file or directory is corrupt and unreadable. (0x570).
Again this is the first time I get this error message, I was told that I must do I disk check and repair, but I just wanted to confirm it here, I also heard that this disk check and repair can cause memory loss which I hope is not true.
Thank you for your help, I appreciate it.

based on your post, i would say that the problem comes from the game installer itself. is it from dvd? the data of the file might be corrupted

Not the intaller's problem!

This is the windows's problem. I tryed to install Red Alert 3, some nfs and i always got this error... But on ubuntu linux i can install them with wine... So the installers are run correctly. This problem comes from the windows, but i don't know how to solve it.
