A folder that can not be deleted ?


Recommended Posts

In my flash drive there is a folder that has a problem. That folder, i can not delete, I can not see the inside even i know that the folder is empty. And when try to enter the folder it gives me an error like : "the file or folder can not be read". How can I delete this folder from my flash drive without formatting it ?

i m on win xp unfortunately..

and it's just a normal folder that you can create by right click>new folder. it's nothing special ( not a protected file or something ). I think the problem is not with malware or virus, it's most probably on the bad sector of the flash disk and that's why it says "the file or folder can not be read". I know that if i format it, i can fix it but since it's capacity is huge, formatting will take too much time. I m looking for a solution without formatting.
