I plugged in a drive into my USB port and tried to access a file in it. When I do that I get an error saying the file or directory is corrupted and unreadable. How do I fix this problem?

There are different methods which you can use to solve these errors, but here I will mention two ways.

METHOD 1: Check and Repair Disk Errors or Corrupted File System

Checking disk errors and repairing corrupted file systems can fix "The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable" error caused by bad sectors, virus infection or file system corruption. 

  • First of all, Go to the start menu and search cmd then right click on it and choose run as administrator 
  • Enter the below command: chkdsk /f h: then Press Enter. (Replace h: with the drive letter of your inaccessible disk or drive.)

METHOD 2: Format the Drive

Before opting this method makes sure to keep the backup of data, it is a good idea to format the data on the hard disk to fix the issue once and for all. If you can’t access the drive using File Explorer, then use disk management or using cmd to format the disc.
