I/O error deleting file, file permissions represented as ?????????
I couldn't view the contents of a folder on the Windows data partition of my Ubuntu machine. The GUI reported the folder as empty. I opened a terminal (console) and navigated to the offending folder and found all my files and folders as well as what seems to be a corrupted file. The files permissions, ownership, size and access date are all represented by question marks. (screen output follows)
-rw------- 2 phil phil 24427 Nov 9 09:51 Variety-order.odt
-????????? ? ? ? ? ? Variety-order.txt
-rw------- 1 phil phil 818 Nov 13 10:26 Variety-order.txt~
when I tried to remove the file even with the -f flag, I got the following error:
rm: cannot remove `Variety-order.txt': Input/output error
Anyone have any ideas how I can get rid of this file or otherwise resolve this issue?
