    Corrupted/ Unreadable file(s) halp pls


    Hallo,
    I've been having issues trying to delete a file in my Steam folder and it keeps saying: "An unexpected error is keeping you from deleting the folder. 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."

    I've tried deleting it from cmd in a lot of different ways, it keeps saying "access is denied" in cmd + whenever I go to properties and open the security tab it shows a red X and smth like this:

    Thanks in advance

    Hi there fakecodA,

    I would suggest you use an application called EMCO UnlockIT (UnLock IT Free - Unlock a File or Folder Locked by the System) and right click the corrupted files and press delete from EMCO UnlockIT and it will forcefully delete the desired files.



    Report back your success.

    You can also boot from a repair drive and delete the file that way.

    I find some problem using this method since Windows throws a read error too (lol), I just use a Linux distribution to do it like Mint.
