    Folder Problem


    I had created a folder in my external hard drive.
    The problem is that i am not able to delete or move it.It throws me an error telling "This file is no longer located here.Verify items location and try again."
    The properties of the file are like last modified etc are also not shown.It contains some files but shows that it is using 0 bytes.
    Please help.I want to delete it.
