    I have done some research. I was a mac users then moved to windows 10. I have a lot of file as ._.DS_Store.
    I tried Win+R then cmd then del /s /q /f /a .DS_STORE.
    They are all corrupted. Is it any way to remove all corrupted file?
    Any solutions please?

    I have the same migration story. Just type DS_STORE and delete all found files in Windows Explorer. It should work. No big deal

    freebooter: no I didn't however, I tried this Win+R then cmd then del /s /q /f *DS_STORE. and it worked. however I have some other corrupted file that they start with ._ follow by filename. I cannot just search and delete as my other file will be deleted. I have to look for a command.
    Do you have any ideas?

    Run sfc /SCANNOW from an elevated CMD Prompt.

    Does the files you want to delete have file extension?

    guys, I found it it is
    To remove all filename start with ._ you to go to Win+R then cmd then del /s /q /f ._*
    To remove all DS_STORE to go to Win+R then cmd then del /s /q /f *DS_STORE.
    wate beautiful weekend,
    hasta pronto
