    Windows 10: How to delete folders that are indicated as corrupted or u


    Windows 10: How to delete folders that are indicated as corrupted or unreadable?

    I couldn’t figure out how to delete folders that are indicated as corrupted or unreadable

    The result of the Chkdsk /scan command appears in the screenshots below

    The other basic thing you should do is to check your disk, just in case. I.e. what caused the corruption.

    E.g. Download and use Hard Disk Sentinel (trial, excellent, SSDs too).
    Basic check on SMART params - Crystal Diskinfo (free).

    I used to see the same corrupted folder error and the only solution I found was to copy off whatever I could then reformat the drive.
    - I suppose that, once you've copied off whatever you can, an aggressive chkdsk might be as effective. [example - chkdsk e: /F /V /R /X and/or chkdsk e: /R]

    My problem was caused by my own behaviour.
    - I would sleep the computer then feel free to remove the drive.
    - I thought that all would be well as long as I reconnected it before waking the computer up but I was wrong.

    Hello @jamal numan,

    Windows 10: How to delete folders that are indicated as corrupted or u-codes_txt.jpg

    I notice in the screenshot above that you have a Codes.txt - Notepad tab open. Did you run ANY Codes prior to this happening, and if so, what were they?

    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
