Corrupted Files

I have corrupted files on my flash drive that will not delete. I was in a hurry and did not stop it before I took it out of the computer one night. Do I need to reformat the drive? How do I do this?

Have you tried to run Check Disk?? (Right click on the drive in My Computer -> Tools -> Select "Check Now...") Sometimes this can repair the file and allow you to delete it afterward.

*EDIT* I was guessing that you were using Windows XP...

Trying to do that I found the "Format" Option, so its fixed. Thanks for your help.
