I had similar problems and cleared them by running scandisk in the true DOS mod and then running defrag /U (files only mode). Defrag is so fast that I can call it from the desktop.

REVIEW

Meet the drop-resistant Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
