Hi,
I have a dual boot laptop with Linux Mint & Win XP. I have shared my XP
drives with Linux Mint and somehow few files on the shared drive got
corrupted (pdf files).
Now I am able to view those files in both the operating systems, but when I
try to delete it from Linux Mint, it says "No such file or directory" and
some long error on XP.
Note that I can view the files using 'ls' command and also tried to delete
them using inode without any success.

Any suggestions?
