I left my computer running overnight to complete an OCR process on some files. When I returned in the morning the system had locked up, forcing a hardware reset. Scandisk reported errors when it ran and asked if I wanted to fix the problem. I replied yes. Scandisk appeared to fix the problem, placing the corrupted data into a folder named "DIR00001". When I attempt to examine the contents of this folder using Explorer my system hangs up! I have tried deleting the folder by right-clicking and choosing delete, but Explorer reports the file is either read-only or in use by another program. I tried changing the properties using Explorer and ATTRIB under the DOS session. Both cause a system hang. I have tried using Norton Disk Doctor, which runs for a few minutes then reports it has run out of memory. Even running it under a safe mode does not work. I have tried Nuts & Bolts disk utility. It runs through its process, but does not fix the problem caused by the corrupted directory. Does anyone know how I can delete this corrupted file short of having to do a format on my C: drive?
