Cause 1You removed a storage device from the computer after hibernation, changed the data on the device, reattached the device, and then resumed the computer.
When a Windows-based computer enters hibernation, all the necessary information such as system state and memory content to a file (Hiberfile) is stored. When the computer is resumed, Windows reads the Hiberfile to re-create the environment that is exactly same as before the computer was hibernated.

Therefore data corruption or inconsistencies occur after you resume the computer.
