Your file system is corrupted.  Run dosfsck or scandisk.

No.  Partitioning is horrible, because we have to be compatible with a
lot of poorly designed (well, undesigned) proprietory systems (BIOS,
partition tables, DOS/Windows' FAT, etc).  That's why it's important
everyone tells us when they have problems, so we can try to solve
them for everybody.  So, thanks!
