"Error deleting file or folder"

"Cannot delete xxxxxx xxxxx: The directory is not empty."

"xxxxx xxxxx is not accessible. The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable"

I am getting a similar box when trying to copy certain files to my External HDD or delete them from it.

Any ideas

Not exactly sure what you mean, but if it is a file or folder try deleting it in Safe Mode (Tap F8 when booting) and select Safe Mode, it takes while to load and looks strange but don't worry.
