inProgress file need to delete but 'is in use' ????

So yesterday my 1TB Buffalo hard drive decided to stop functioning properly after I stopped its daily back-up because things were running slowly.
Now all I can see when I load up my hard-drive is either backups.backupdb with the all the backup folders or all of my folders but no files in them.
When I can view the backup folders I can see two files at the bottom, Alias and my most recent updated .inprogress file. Now, in order for me to repair my hard drive via Disk Utility it needs to unmount which its unable to do because (I think) I'm unable to delete the inprogress. file which states its in use. I don't know how to delete a file in use, but its not in use. Nor do I know if this is even the problem.
