I have been using Acronis dependably for years. I recently did a partial file restore via the rescue CD. I don't normally go this route as I typically do full image restores via the rescue CD and file restores via the Windows based Acronis. However my main notebook had crashed and I used a backup notebook with the recuse CD to restore critical data files that had been archived on my external drive. The restore appeared to work. My main notebook is now back in service but I am noticing a handful of the restored files on the external drive are having problems. They won't open and when I try to delete them I get a message "the file or directory is corrupted or unreadable". I have tried running chkdsk with various options MANY times. Chkdsk does not detect any errors. How do I get rid of these files hopefully without having to reformat the drive? I am using Acronis True Image Home® version 9.0 (build 3,677) with Windows XP Pro. The drive with the problematic files is a Maxtor One-Touch II external USB.
