Can NOT move some files ???



I can't move some files under XP...Xp says to me that the file is used by another process...but everything is closed...I just rebooted and the same message ?!?

I defragment my hard drive, and it says that the file I can't move cannot be defragmented ?

I can delete it, fortunately !

Have you an idea on how defragment better ?
I have an Hard drive of 20 GB and 8 GB free

Bye gyus


This file

It is a video DIvx 696 and a 660 divx too...

I think that it happens with BIG files...maybe a bug in the FAT or in the index or something ?!?


I have the same problem as well. Sometimes i can't even delete them (like when i put them on a CD and want to delete them off the HDD).

I have found a way to move/delete them but it takes a bit of patience, which is, create a directory with any name and keep dragging the file into it. Sometimes it moves at the first attempt, but some other times it needs 6-7-8-9 or even 10 attempts for it to move. Then, when in the new directory i can delete it. :rolleyes:

It's weird and happens to me on DivX files as well. I never noticed this happening with any other type of file. Maybe the file is linked to the player in some way ?

I dunno, i just know it happens and it's boring :mad:



Same problem exactely...fell "aloneless" (don't know if it's right writing...I came from Belgium...)

:D :D


Yep I had/have that problem too. You can not move them but you can delete them. Only way to do it though is with Nero.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
