Weird folder

Alright so I have a folder on my D drive that used to have a few gigs of
multimedia. A few seasons of TV shows, about 10 gigs if I remember
correctly.

I didn't access the folder for a few months, and now just few days ago
when I tried to, I noticed something weird:

Whenver I'd try to do anything with the folder, it takes uncommonly
long. Like even when I'd just click it, it takes time until it
'activates'. Then when I double-click it to view what's in it, it shows
no objects. No hidden objects either. But still there's 10+ gigs there
somewhere, because I should have a lot more free space on that drive.

And when I try to delete it, it says "the folder is not empty" or
something to that effect. So I can't do anything with it, and my other
drive is now 10 gigs smaller.

Any ideas? I just want it removed now.

Try to delete the data from the Safe Mode. Also check the HDD for
errors.
