    Hi everyone, so I have an issue with a corrupted file that was unintensionally created from a Nitrotracker .xm save. All my attempts to move or delete this .xm and the directory it is within have been futile. There a way to do it without have to do a full Fat32 format on my microSD?

    If you're in Windows, run error checking on the memory card. (in Windows Explorer right click the drive, properties, then there'll be an error checking option in there somewhere in XP, I assume Vista works in a similar way). It will attempt to repair the damage or salvage what's left into a hidden folder (usually called "found000" or something like that) which you can then delete.

    Error checking is using chkdsk I think...

    in dos/command prompt:
    chkdsk /f x:

    where x: is the drive letter. It'll fix up any file corruptions, keep in mind if a file is corrupted beyond repair, it won't be able to recover it.
