    Have you done a surface analysis with CHKDSK?

    What operating system? Generally if you're having problems even deleting the file then it's not the file itself that's got the problem but the directory structure holding the file's details .. when you delete a file the data itself isn't read or touched at tall, only directory blocks are changed.

    Not sure what if any tools are around to try to deal with this, if it's a media fault (disk bad spot) then I doubt it's something that can be recovered using a simple tool .. certainly I know of nothing that could help here.

    Norton Disk doctor to the rescue it has gone past 30% going slowly but hopfully it should fix the file or files the rest of the tests showed file system and dir structure to be fine so its file issue.
