Error 0x80070570 when attempting to delete folder

Hi, I've some files in a backup that I cannot seem to delete.
This is the error message:

An unexpected error is keeping you from deleting the file. If you continue to receive this error, you can use the error code to search for help with this problem.

Error 0x80070570: The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable

Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Try logging on as a different adminstrator userid to see if you can delete the files using the different userid.

Also see if you can give "Everyone" Full Access to the folder.
