Regenerating codes provide an efficient way to recover data at failed nodes
in distributed storage systems. It has been shown that regenerating codes can
be designed to minimize the per-node storage (called MSR) or minimize the
communication overhead for regeneration (called MBR). In this work, we propose
a new encoding scheme for [n,d] error- correcting MSR codes that generalizes
our earlier work on error-correcting regenerating codes. We show that by
choosing a suitable diagonal matrix, any generator matrix of the [n,{\alpha}]
Reed-Solomon (RS) code can be integrated into the encoding matrix. Hence, MSR
codes with the least update complexity can be found. An efficient decoding
scheme is also proposed that utilizes the [n,{\alpha}] RS code to perform data
reconstruction. The proposed decoding scheme has better error correction
capability and incurs the least number of node accesses when errors are
