I have been trying to set up an Xcopy to a removable hard drive to use as my backup medium. It didn't work smoothly and now I have a situation where the drive thinks there is a directory on it (BackDir) with files in it but they are invisible to Explorer. Properties shows there to be 2.5 Gb on the drive. If I try to Xcopy to BackDir it asks if I want to overwrite. If I do a DOS del *.* on that drive it finds nothing to delete. It won't let me format the drive because some other process has it open. What is happening here?
