Excuse me, but I have a problem.

There's two corrupted folders (containing corrupted games, I think) on my NTFS drive. Whenever I try to delete it, it shows:

The deleting methods that I have already tried is the DEL button, and opening up CMD and code: "del".

How do I delete these folders? Thanks in advance.

Is the standard delete behaviour to send to the Recycle Bin? Try Shift+Del to attempt permanent deletion, or if necessary, even try deleting the folder that's one level up.

Other than that, besides a total drive format, it may be difficult. Maybe there's a program that helps with this sort of thing. Or maybe another member can help more.

if it's only one folder that got corrupted,I'm guessing you can move the other folders to your pc,format your usb then copy back the folders?

I'don't really think it's possible to remove a corrupted file without creating more problems.

There's also trying to delete it in the DOS shell.

Locate the folder in 'cmd' (D :\wbfs [no space though. I added the space to get rid of the

You can always backup, format, restore too.
