Hi - I've got an empty folder on the desktop, size 0 bytes, created in 2008 (it hasn't been on the desktop for that length of time) and when I try to delete it, I get the above message, followed by 'Access denied. Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.'
The other day I wanted to tidy up my Ext HDD files and directories. Too many multiple backups and copies.
It had a Sys Vol Info directory in it. I could not get rid of it. File Assassin and about four other utils would not do it. I was the owner/full control/full admin permission/special permissions set. I got very annoyed.
Ended up copying my much reduced number of tidied files back to the laptop and reformatting the ext HDD. Not an option on a main c drive though.
