Failed to clean directory entries from drive



I am having difficulty when erasing selected files. I get an error message:

“Failed to clean directory entries from drive C:\ there was something not quite right with the file system. You may want to run ScanDisk”

I am using Windows 98. I have tried running scan disk yet I find after having done this that I still get the same error message.

Might anyone have any ideas on this.

Many thanks.

I just found a response to the same problem

So no need to reply for the moment.
Yes defragmenting the drive did the trick, so no more problem.
