Quick description, then more details below.
I have several files that are giving the error message: "The File or directory is corrupted and unreadable" any time they are accessed: Read, Delete, Rename, or try to view their properties. They show up just fine in explorer.
I have tried opening a CMD shell as Administrator and deleting them. I have tried booting into Safe Mode as an administrator and deleting them. I have chkdsk /f multiple times. I have tried downloading Unlocker and Killbox, tools I found referenced in various threads brought up by google. The files remained. It does cause chkdsk to run the next time I boot, but it doesn't remove the file.
The files are text files that were backed up from an XP machine using Acronis corporate edition backup manager. They were restored on a file basis to a Win 7 directory using Acronis True Image Home (version 11). There are only a handful of files out of a couple hundred that are corrupted, so I don't have reason to think it's the backup/restore sequence that's the key. And I'm not too concerned about them being corrupted - I can restore them from other sources later. Right now I just want to be able to delete them.
