# Remove a damaged documents in a Linux system

Just how to remove a documents that is damaged?

In Linux (Fedora based), when I type: ls -l I get

drwxr-xr-x.  2 dmiller3 dmiller3     4096 Jul 26 13:57 SomeFile
??????????   ? ? ?                   4096 Jul 26 13:57 CorruptedFile

.

I can not do anything with this CorruptedFile. I can not utilize it in delete or anything. It's the only documents in the whole system that resembles this. What creates this, and also just how can I remove it?

Submit system is ext2.

you can have been contacting a documents throughout a tough reset, or your disk drive can have troubles. a fsck needs to repair it (you will certainly need to umount the fs to do this). I would certainly examine dmesg and also smartctl -a /dev/hdx (last becomes part of smartmontools) to see if your HD is reporting any kind of mistakes. I would certainly additionally run a non-destructive badblocks on the dividing.
