Ubuntu: Error message when reading subdirectory from a USB Drive



Question:

When attempting to display a directory (sorry, I'm strictly GUI for now because I'm new to this) I get the following error for a folder that reads flawlessly when attached to various Windows boxes.

This location could not be displayed.

Sorry, could not display all the contents of “diskname”: Error when getting information for file '/media/abc/etcetc/Personal Folders/IMG_0035.JPG': Input/output error

I am willing to toss the file to see if it resolves but I don't know how to do that yet. I am going to get the appropriate terminal script and get to work on that but I thought I would ask here in the meantime.

Is there some way to find out why it hangs on the one file?

What is the easiest way to toss the file?

UPDATE:

After trying to change the settings to suppress thumbnails (thanks user3121023) and using newly learned commands in the terminal, I am still stuck. The command line returned the same error.

I will mount the drive on a Windows box later and try to see if I can resolve it there. I should at least be able to remove the file.


Solution:1

[Solved] The problem it turns out is that the drive has new issues, possibly due to being dropped just prior to connecting it to the Ubuntu computer.
