rm: ri_rengí¶í½ªpg: No such file or directory

Maybe your directory structure is damaged

I'm just guessing, but maybe your directory structure is damaged. Try DiskUtility-FirstAid-verify, or another disk utility.

sure I have, I have tried it in firewire mode, I have booted it in OS9, I have mounted it as a afp, smb share on booth osx, os9 and win machines with no luck. I have tried to delete the files by using ftp. I have mad different perl, php, c, java programs that should be able to delete the files but with no luck.
