Well, it definitely looks like something happened and probably truncated the file. The error 87 means that when it went to read the file, it found the end of file before the end of the record. So in this case, there was supposed to be a record of length 160, but it read less than that before hitting the end of the file.

If there were no record there, or an empty file, it would return error 2 (end of file) instead.

The problem could be something as simple as somehow the file got truncated by a character or two, or possibly someone opened it in a text editor and messed it up? Otherwise there could be a disk malfunction (which might be causing the disk errors?), or possibly another program is writing back to this file improperly...

I'd say once the file is empty, maybe try deleting it and recreating it? Might clear up something in the file system that's conflicting.
