How to Fix Extensible Storage Engine Errors
By Pete F Morgan
Extensible Storage Engine or "Esent" for Microsoft Windows, is a shared library for "volmgrx.sys bsod"
and "es" in PC installed with Windows 7, Vista, XP and Windows 8, including 64 and 32 bit operating
systems. This dll is related to up to 1684992 system files and the majority of it are utilized to
execute software programs. ESE is the center of Microsoft Exchange Server, Active Directory and
Branch Cache. Its goal is to enable applications to store and retrieve data through indexed and
sequential access. Several operating system components take advantage of "ESE".
This type of file is found on "C:\ SQL Server\ esent.dll". The file is usually found in database
management system applications that use the SQL or Structured Query Language. Microsoft has developed
SQL servers that include features designed to respond to data usage and flow. This file expands the
functionalities of the SQL server to support various data types for storage, including Decimal,
Integer, Float, variable length character strings, text, binary, character strings and among others.
Tasks performed by the database storage engine are coursed through the SQL server for processing.
The Esent.dll file offers enough functions for the engine to apply systems that allow access and
changes of data in the database. It also enables the deployment of these applied systems to the
clients or customers. To check and enhance the operation of the database, the administrator can
carry out the utilization of the dll file on a daily basis.
List of Common Error Messages
When there is a problem with the file, you will receive any of the following error messages:
• "Esent.dll" missing, can't load, or cannot find
• "volmgrx.sys bsod" windows 7 is missing from your PC
• 2/two es in Task Manager and high CPU/Memory usage
• Windows 7 registry and startup errors
• entry point not found when running operating system
• File surrogate has stopped when opening picture
• dll purchased from unknown source may be spyware in disguise
• (BSOD) blue screen of death
The Primary Causes of The Errors
There are two main causes of errors: malware programs and improper installation/uninstallation
programs. Each time a program is uninstalled or installed on your computer, there is a possibility
for the Registry to become corrupt. It's because software programs install and uninstall several
files that are associated with the Registry. Spyware and viruses change core system DLL files
and their succeeding Registry entries. When either of these two causes occur, you may see error
messages, blue screen crashes, poor performance or freezes.
Tips on Fixing the Errors
Reinstall the file or run a clean install of Windows. If an error occurs while using a specific
program, you need to reinstall a new program and then replace the previous program. Reinstalling
the program can provide solution to file error. A clean installation of the operating system will
eliminate everything from the hard drive and install a new copy of Windows. During the clean
installation, all the data on your hard drive will be removed though so if you have extremely
important files, you may want to back them up first. When reinstalling the specific file though,
make sure that you get it only from a trusted source.
