Error deleting from hdfs

Good morning.  Last week we had an issue where most of the data volumes were removed from our nodes due to i/o timeouts.  I corrected that issue and managed to get the volumes connected.  Replication did what it was suppose to, with the exception of a missing 1%.  Also, this weekend we discovered that we cannot delete a single folder from the filesystem, so I'm assuming this is where the missing 1% went.  At this time we aren't concerned about data recovery, we simply want to remove the folder from hadoop.  What is my next step to try and resolve this?

`# hadoop fs -rmr /VisitData/incoming/old
