Unable to find file

When defragmenting hard drive (Winxp) was unable to defragment a file. The file was in the "temp" folder. I deleted all in the folder and re-ran defragmenter. The same file will still not defragment except it is now listed as WERebac.dir00\*****.exe.mdmp . running a search brings up file not found. selected hidden folder, no change. Used "folder options" to display system files, still no joy.
Anyone ever come across this before

Sounds like the file may be damaged. You could try running chkdsk (scandisk) and see if it will repair, or you could try deleting the file manually in a DOS box.


Thanks Marvin
(possible double post) Still could not find file using DOS window. Ran chkdsk /r, sorted.
