My external hard-disk's one folder is not accessible. When I click that folder, one message box appears: H\SOFTWARE(a folder) is not accessible. The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable.

This problem happened when I was scanning my hard disk by an antivirus and that time my computer had stopped responding. So that time I opened directly the USB connection of hard-disk from CPU.Then this problem has occurred and the folder is appearing empty.

Please help!

System Configuration: Windows XP Internet Explorer 7.0
