Default unable to delete a folder

sponsored links

 
Hi, Win Xp Pro SP2 O/S. Tried to delete a folder but unable to. Got this error message. Cannot delete file. Unable to read from the source file or disk. This folder was a destination folder for my video program. Do I need to reformat this partition to get rid of this file folder. Any suggestions appreciated.

Thanks

No you don't need to format.

Try seeing if your video program gives you the option of removing it.


If that fails, start in Safe Mode and delete it.

If that fails again, try something like Pocket KillBox, Unlocker or MoveOnBoot. (All freeware)


As a last resort, you can delete it via a Command Prompt.

Insomniac, you're the greatest. The file folder was deleted using unlocker.
