What could this folder be, and is it safe to delete it? Could it be that one of my files got converted to a folder somehow? If so, how do I convert it back?
Is it possible that an e2fsck/badblock has been ran at the specified date of the directory (jan. 28 16:2 ?

Because if so, then it is possibly the list of some 'corrupted' blocks on your hd. Which explain why you cannot edit those files.
