    Hello @jamal numan,

    Thank you guys foe the help.

    The Chkdsk /r command appears to fix the error and gets the folder in question accessible.
    However, Chkdsk /r takes a lot of time.
    Excellent news.

    Please mark this thread as Solved.

    Chkdsk /r takes a lot of time
    Check Disk should take a few hours on a healthy drive because it looks at each sector of a drive to see if that is a Bad Sector, if so, it will mark the sector Bad and will tell Windows not to put data on that sector.
    Since you have corrupted data, that would mean that the sectors that the data were on are bad, corrupting the data. The longer Check Disk runs, the more Bad Sectors you have. Your drive is beginning to fail, it has a little more life in it. But eventually it is going to totally fail, so keep an eye on it make plans to replace when you can. Download DiskGenius in my signature. Select your Disk, and go to the toolbar to Disk/View SMART Details. this will tell you the overall Health. If you have the time you can go to View or Repair Bad Sectors/Verify Now, this is the same as Check Disk with the /R switch and it will take just as long but it will show you how many Bad Sectors you have.

    1. Once the installation begins SeaTools for Windows will search for HDDs and SSDs on your computer.

    2. Detected Drives will list the HDDs and SSDs found. Place a check mark in the drive box you want to run the scan on. This should be the drive that has the operating system installed on it, this is usually C: drive.

    3. You will see Basic Tests toolbar above Detected Drives, move the mouse pointer over this to open the test options. Please click on Long Generic Test

    4. This will start the scan. When the scan is complete you will see the result under Test Status , please post the results in your topic.

    5. The test will indicate either Pass or Fail. Post the results of the scan in your topic.

    6. Click on Help, then click on View Log File. If the scan failed take a screen shot of the Log File and post it in your topic.
