Just looked at Write caching in Windows Explorer,it was already unchecked,the small box I mean !? But I was getting these Delayed Write Failed bubbles constantly ? Whats the next step ?

Not sure myself, I had just googled for the microsoft help page. I also noticed some people having same thing when using large hard drives that were getting full`ish, but also some where there was a problem with the HD on the way out. But that may be nothing to do with your problem, have you contacted the HD makers support ?

Its a Mesh desktop I have,will they be able to advise me on this problem ? By the way, I do have a large HD capacity,275Gb & 1Gb DDRAM,only used a few Gigs on the disk tho,had the computer only 8 months.Thx again.
