Have a telecommunication server that switched over to its backup. After the switchover we noticed a couple of files that can't be deleted.

[root@LABSYS2 log]# ls -ltr
ls: cannot access 1000025.DBG: Input/output error
ls: cannot access 10002CB.AUD: Input/output error
total 769808
-????????? ? ?          ?            ?            ? 10002CB.AUD
-????????? ? ?          ?            ?            ? 1000025.DBG

I tried to find the inode of the file and use it to delete but "ls -il" did not return inodes  (it only did for other files in dir)

ls -li
find ./ -inum <inode number> -exec rm -i {} \;

Please offer any suggestions.

Thanks!
