Data error (cyclic redundancy check)

- Subject: Data error (cyclic redundancy check)
I've been having some mysterious problems when trying to delete some
files in my cygwin home directory. It might not be a cygwin problem at
all, maybe hardware. But I thought I'd start here since the problem is
isolated to my cygwin directory.
It takes about 10-20 seconds for "ls" to print the file list. From a DOS
prompt "dir" prints the same list, hangs for 5 seconds and says "File
not found". If I try to "del" a file from the DOS prompt, I get an
error: "Data error (cyclic redundancy check)". It seems to only happen
when deleting .* files.
Any ideas? Might this be a hardware problem or related to cygwin?
