New Problem trying to delete a folder, I get this error... Cannot delete folder make sure the disk is not full or write Protected and that the file is currently not in use. I tried in Explorer and in Nero the file is not in use and Ideas and I did try deleting it in safe mode. Its a file I made to store some mp3's the folder is now empty! Any Ideas?

The only solution I found for this, (and this seems to happen only with media files that WMP use) was to delete the contents of the contents of the folder first and then delete the folder. Has worked everytime for me.

The File is read only and every time I change it, it changes right back. The file is empty and I still cant delete it. The only thing I didnt do is try to delete it in dos becasue I have no idea how to do it..

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
