Re: Can't delete corrupted Data

Have you tried the file system restore via the recovery menu? Try that and then try deleting the corrupt data, I'm sure I did something along those lines to clear it.

If it's game data redownload the file from the store, it'll replace the corrupt file and then you can delete it, assuming you have fast/unlimited BB.

Re: Can't delete corrupted Data

I had some corrupted data on my hard drive, I selected to delete it & just left it for about 45 minutes checking every 15 minutes to see if it had deleted it. After 45 mins it said it deleted it, I believe my corrupted data was from Resistance 3, I found the solution via google, hope this helps.

Try not cancelling the delete operation for Resistance 3. Doing so will cause corrupted data Resistance 3 game data can and does take over 1 HOUR to delete.
