So Why Does the file or directory is corrupted and unreadable Error Occur??


The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable is an error which states that the memory allocations on your drive are lost, you need to set it back to its old state. When do you lose your memory allocations normally ?? here is the answer, forcefully removing the usb drive or flash drive (doesn’t happen always, it’s just a chance) without closing the applications running on the drive. As its highly difficult to manually reallocate its addresses, we do it using tools which windows provide inbuilt for solving such problems.

You can just Format your pendrive or usb drive or flash drive by right clicking on the drive and selecting “Format” to solve this error, if you don’t want to lose data on the drive or if you can format the drive follow the tutorial on method 1

Method 1: How to Solve the file or directory is corrupted and unreadable Error

  
  1)  Search for “CMD” and right click on cmd and select “Run as Administrator”


    2)  Now type the following command
Chkdsk /f /r location of partition:
You find the name of your usb partition from “My computer”
For Example: type “Chkdsk /f /r d:

  

    3)  Wait till the process reaches 100%



That’s it your drive will now show up and ready to be used. If your problem is still now solved, just format the drive now, even if you are not able to format the drive before you can do it now. Some of the errors on the drive are solved and it can be formatted successfully. In case if the process failed with any kind of error move to method –II, in which we recover the data first and format the drive.
