    How to delete undeletable file?

    I moved the files to a different hard drive section via ye old copy command, but I could have sworn I deleted the original files I copied. I get to work, power up the portable hard drive, boom, the files are back in the drives base directory where they originally where. I try to delete them again, now it says they are corrupted and un readable....

    Any idea on how I can re-delete these files? Every other file seems un affected except the ones I copied.

    If you can't delete them change their content / name. Then you may be able to delete those files.

    Format ?
