Hi - I have 2 Windows folders which contain/ed mp3 files. When I try and delete them Windows gives the error message "The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable".

Can anyone tell me how I can get rid of these? The biggest headache is that I can't run a defrag while the folders still exist.

Thanks. :cry:

I've had that problem before and its really annoying. Try start Windows in safe mode and then delete.

Hi Roland.

Ive had this same problem.

I went . Start > Run, In the box that appears type "REGEDIT".

Try to locate your files through the menu and delete throught there. I must make you aware that you must delete the right thing and not go and delete something very important.. so before deleting just check a few times to make sure you have the corrupted file selected, then right click and delete. :)

Restart your pc and all should be well.

Hope this info proves useful!

Jay

Hi.
If I am not mistaken - problem arised because of the filename which is either too long or contained too many non-alphabet.
Try to rename these into something very short in Windows Explorer.
Close the folder.
Then right click to delete the folder.
Hope this helps.
