cannot remove folder : cannot find the specified file
Posted on 2009-02-12
I am trying to delete a folder which contained a backup of Outlook Express . After "deleting" the folder and contents, I stillhave a few folders inside th original folder. These folders show 0 bytes in properties, but I cannot delete these folders, files inside these folders. I get an error cannot remove folder "name" : cannot find the spcified file.
Also if I try to delete a folder inside the partially deleted folder, I get message Cannot delete file: Cannot read from the source file or disk. Theother foldrs and files on the USB stick work fine.
I have tried using DOS prompt, but no success. Looks like a USB device file structure corruption?
Any suggestions? I would prefer not to re-format the USB storage device if possible.
