Corrupted Files in my WD Ext. HD


Senior Member
Hi all

recently i found that there's some folders in my 1 TB western digital HD
that can not be copied, moved, access or even delete.

these folders are from my friend i got long ago
when i just click on them a single click the system hangs until windows explorer shut down and re-launched

i tried to do error-checking, but that took too much time, barely the number increase 1 by 1 every some minutes.

is there any way to get rid of them ?, they are taking big sizes

also, i remember sometimes when i plug a flash memory or something like that, a small window of windows telling me it's recommended to run check on it, the check run for few seconds and delete the corrupted files, how can i run that manually since it's not appearing now ?

thank you all
