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..

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

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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!
