On a Windows 2000 PC with 2 hard disks, I downloaded a picture from Internet Explorer by Right Clicking the Image and clicking "Save As". The image was saved on to the second disk. When I tried to delete the image, I got an error- "Unable to delete file - source or destination in use". I tried the following without success:- 1) Checked the file attributes - all were normal 2) Restarted PC and retried - no luck 3) Ran virus check on hard disk and retied - no luck 4) Microsoft Knowledgebase said to stop and restart several services in Manage, Services - no luck.
The only fix was to run CHKDSK on second disk - this required a reboot. Once CHKDSK ran at startup, a message was displayed "Windows fixed the file system". When I logged in again, I was able to delete the file successfully.
