Exclamation Solved: Error 0x80070570
I am on an Inspiron 1525 with Windows Vista. I've had it for about a month and it hasnt given me any problems. But for the last couple days my computer has not been letting me move, copy, paste, or delete files.
When I to do any of these things this message popup appears:

"An unexpected error is preventing the operation. Make a note of this error code, which might be useful if you get additional help to resolve this problem:
Error 0x80070570: The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable"

Does anyone know how to fix this problem? Preferably a step by step process, if there is one?? Thanks to anyone who has any input.

Try doing a virus scan, it's probably a virus.
