Unable to remove 2 files


Hi all,

I'll firstly give you the background. Basically I've been having issues with Valve's new SteamCMD for the gameserver Counter Strike : Global Offensive. So I decided to just remove all the files associated with it to do a fresh download. This is where I've ran into my problem.

There are 2 files that when I try to delete them I get the following errors:
Code:
rm: cannot remove `srv-counterstrikego/csgo/csgo/resource/csgo_german.txt': Input/output error
rm: cannot remove `srv-counterstrikego/csgo/csgo/resource/chat_swedish.txt': Input/output error
From searching around online most of the posts keep saying that the hard drive is failing although I'm not sure as this is the only incident that I've had and I'm thinking it might be a result of the buggy SteamCMD server client.

Does anyone have any ideas how I could go about removing these files please?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

I'm using the command below:-
Code:
rm -rf srv-counterstrikego/*
I've also tried browsing to the directory and removing the file. Although one thing I did notice the first time is that is said the file was a directory at which point I used the below connect

Code:
rmdir filename.txt
Since then I just get the I/O error

I believe you have a corrupted superblock in your HDD
you can check using e2fsck or dumpe2fs

Code:
#e2fsck /path_to_partition

#dumpe2fs /path_to_partition | grep superblock

I've rebooted the server and the 2 files are now gone so not sure what was going on there.

Thanks for the help
