I am having problems with the error below for my company ERP system. I am currently trying to determine the cause and also a way to restore to a good state. My most recent backup still had gave this error so I am concerned going further back and what it will do to our business. Any advise or guidance on how to resolve with minimal data lose?

GAM, SGAM and PFS pages are all allocation pages, not data pages. It seems that there are some problems with these pages. The problems are not fatal.

What I will suggest you to do is:

1. Backup of your database.

2. Switch to single user mode and try to run checkdb with parameter REPAIR_REBUILD to see if it will fix the error. See for more detailed info.

Hope this helps.
