Best way to solve corrupt files on memory card ?

Hi

 

I was trying to back up my memory card (5800XM) via Windows XP - copying/pasting - and several corrupt files were thrown up.

 

e.g "22%.dat" in the Private\....\Cache\E\ folder, a file for Opera Mini DS folder

 

Even when I deleted 22%.dat from the phone, it was miraculously resurrected as soon as I tried to copy over again.

 

What's the best way to solve this ?

 

Do I have to reformat the card & reinstall Ovi Maps, music / image files, Apps again ?

 

 

thanks

The best way will indeed be to format your memory card, and reinstall everything again.

What does the "%" signify in this corrupt 0kb .dat file ?

 

Why does the phone recreate the faulty file everytime I delete it with Windows ?

 

There is a 1kb "22.dat" file as well (which I presume is the healthy version)
