Bug fix: Cannot create new storage, Error 0x00000057 – Incorrect Parameter

Cannot create new storage, Error 0x00000057 - Incorrect Parameter

When you try to manage storage space in Windows 10 and get the following error message again: Could not create new storage space, Error (0x000057), The setting is incorrect`. This article explains the different steps you need to take to diagnose and solve the problem.

Over the past few years, Microsoft has released two major updates to Windows 10 every year, bringing much-needed feature and content improvements to the operating system. In addition to the features and improvements, Microsoft has also gone to great lengths to improve the overall stability, resource usage, and memory usage of the operating system.

Unfortunately, some of these changes have led to the return to the operating system of some rather annoying bugs that we haven’t seen too often lately. One such error: “Unable to create a new memory, error (0x00000057), the parameter is incorrect”. Fortunately, like most other Windows 10 errors, this error can be fixed, but unfortunately not in the way most people would like.

The error occurs when a user tries to create a new repository in an existing group or when they create a new group to store more copies. The full error message looks like this:

The same error was reported on a forum. A user shared his experience where he noticed that the contents of some files were corrupted. This happened after upgrading to Windows 10 2004, and when the CDKDSK tool was used, it reported other problems reported.

  • The attribute list entry with type 80 code in file 5E711 is corrupted.

Restore from an old backup

The best way is to restore from an old backup made a week or a day before the Windows 10 feature update. This ensures that there are no inconsistencies between the files. Always run the CHKDSK tool to check for inconsistencies.

It is also recommended to lock the parity converter in read-only mode for now. Restoring images to the parity drive will likely cause additional damage when changes are made.

Running the CHKDSK tool

The CHKDSK tool checks the file system and volume file system metadata for logical and physical errors. Once launched, the file system is consistent again, but you must manually check for corrupted data after the check.
