backup so I restored the whole image into a folder on a different hard drive which is my D drive in my PC. The OS on my PC is
Windows XP. Now I need to delete the folder as I've finished with it but it will not delete. I get 'Access denied'. I've tried so
many ways to delete this folder but it won't delete.
I've tried overwriting the folder with an empty one but the new folder still has the same contents.
I've tried overwriting the folder using the backup/restore software but it won't overwrite it.
If tried booting into safe mode as Administrator but can't delete the folder from there.
I can't change any permissions in the folder.
I've tried booting with an NTFS DOS floppy disc and I can't delete the folder with that.
I've even tried several Linux eval CD's and they can't delete the bloody folder either. This is driving me nuts. I know one
solution would be to save everything on the drive, format the drive and then restore everything but the folder but its 140Gb of
data and I don't want to do that unless I have to. There's surely gotta be a way to delete this folder?
Thanks for any help.
