I just copied my entire music archive (20GB) to a 40GB iUSB external HD
One folder (labelled G) is corrupt.
I cannot open it.
The popup says it's empty...
When I try to delete it says *Cannot delete G, the directory is not empty.
Now what?
I checked the original folder, and there_was_ a corrupt file in it, some of
which I repaired ok with *quickpar*, I then deleted the remainder. I now
want to copy this file to replace the corrupt one in the USB HD.

If possible, move all the data from the external disk to the HDD, then
format the external disk and move the data back.

Yes, that was the only remedy that *I* could think of!
It seemed a bit *sledgehammer to crack a walnut* though...
Ho well, I had better bite the bullet and do it then.
TYVM for your reply :-)
