Cannot delete folder from recycle bin.

  Meshuga 21:23 11 Sep 2004

Having backed up my program files to CD I found that one folder would not go on to the CD.I keep getting told that I have files waiting to be sent to the CD. Trouble is, they will not go neither can I delete them. When I try they go to the recycle bin but emtying that only results in them still being there. Can I get rid of them by transferring them to a CD and then remove them from the CD.???. Any suggestions please. Meshuga.

Should have said that the folder is Winzip and my os is xphome SP2. Ignore separate post by mistake. Meshuga.

I find that this annoying behaviour happens when I try to write to a disk, and the Windows XP disk writer tries to get in the way. You should be able to delete the folder by selecting "Delete temporary files" from the side panel.

have downloaded Delete Doctor but there is no icon to drag the file to as instructed. Tried other ways but the file is still there.Meshuga.

the lack of Delete Doctor icon and clicking on it,it opens DD and, dragging the file to it that I wish to delete and clicking to delete it, it still tells me it cannot be deleted.Is there any other way I can try please.I have tried all three options given by Delete Doctor. Meshuga.

Morning Meshuga, have you tried deleting in safe mode? (Keep tapping F8 before Windows loads and select 'Safe Mode' from menu that appears.)

Try this, move the entire contents of the CD Burning directory to another folder, and then delete it in its new location.

will try your suggestions. Meshuga.
