System Manager to modify inode number in USB Flash drive


Good morning!

To start the day, I just got a small problem. Was trying to remove some files and directories (rm -r ...) from my USB flash drive,
and had this message:

"
rm: WARNING: Circular directory structure.
This almost certainly means that you have a corrupted file system.
NOTIFY YOUR SYSTEM MANAGER.
The following two directories have the same inode number:

/mnt/usbstick/Registration2005/pair-140
`/mnt/usbstick/Registration2005/pair-140/Registration2005/pair-140'
"

Anybody knows where to find the system manager? And how to change the inodes?
What happens is like a ribbon, the inode of pair-140 goes back to its higher directory, and I just want to remove this connection.

Thanks in advance

Thanks for the help. What I did at the end was to remove the files on WindowsXP, and then
went back to Linux and everything was fine. I was a bit in a rush, and needed to clean up the
flash drive asap, to copy other stuff.
I didn't know about "fsck" command, what I exactly needed. Useful for another time.

Thanks
