How do you delete files with CRC errors in XP??

One of my drives went south and although I was able to get most of my data back some of it contains files with CRC (cyclic redundancy check) errors which XP will not let me delete (or copy).  I'd like to clear them off my system.  Does anyone know how to do this??

    CRC errors are cause by damaged disk surface you can not delete them without a Low level format of the hard drive which would mark them as bad disk sectors.

    Of course this type of format is

    A: total destructive of all disk data
    B: Virtually unheard of in this modern day, something that was done with SCSI.
    C: CRC errors normally indicate that the disk is about to permanently die.

    Sorry yoropal it is time to easy the plastic, don't it always happen at the best time of year.

    Olpal.

    Good member Doc. Hollingsworth recommended this to me for removing them stubborn stains and now I've never been happier with my wash.

    It depends on the CRC error whether the system will refuse to take part in your attempts at removal but if this don't get at 'em nothing will short of a reformat.

    Yes, back up all of your data onto another drive. You may be able to use a linux (KNOPPIX) live CD and ddrescue to restore the files with CRC errors.

    I'll try that eraser.  Looks good.  I'm pretty sure that the errors are only on the drive that went south on me.  I bought a new 1T drive today to replace it.  Which doesn't count the 1.5T drive I bought over the weekend to pull the almost 300 gigs of data onto.  Plus the $80 for the software to do it.  Sheesh!!!  I think it may be time to just suck it up and head for an i7 with say 12 gigs of RAM and join Freddie's 64bit dark army of the future.

    Hi,

    I would get another hard drive, and then set that one up as a backup ... I got me one of those enclosures and am now using the older hard drives as backups only ... that enclosure was only 24 bux ...

    When you start getting that, I would recommend working on phasing that hard drive out ... from experience ... these things never get better, if the problem is a spot on the disk itself, and the chemicals or moisture, or whatever is causing it spreads out some ... just like rust would.
