Subject: oops... now the dir is filled with gibberish - didn't unmount drive ?

oops... now the dir is filled with gibberish - didn't unmount drive ?

my computer (win98, p3 500) froze during a usb transfer to the rockbox. when i restarted the windows machine, the directory to which i was transferring into is now filled with gibberish directories and files that i can't delete. i tried changing the attributes from archive, hidden files but i still can't delete them.

it might have something to do with removing the device before unmounting it. (?)

what should i do?

thanks,
bryce

p.s. here are the gibberish directories (first) and files (second list) that are in the directory. for each string of weird characters there are about 20 dirs or files with the same name.
