Folders and Files will not delete, it's one Folder they look like Scandisk files but, Tried every which way to get shut as they are using, It Says 167Gb of space when I look in Properties for this folder. This is not right as the Partition is only 56Gb in size

Hi Woody,maybe Unlocker can do the trick click here

What os are we talking here,the 98 or xp ?

Both 98se and XP it's on the Dual boot comp. Will have a look at the links. Be back in a bit as I only just got back in. I left Avast doing it's thing but it could not read these nor could I delete them using it. Just off to get changed and have my Tablets. Back in a bit.

Am back hear a pic for you to see the kind of goo goo [IMG]click here[/IMG]

Just a few of the folders make a not of the Dates on them also. It's in a Mozila Folder. But I remember running Scandisk, and it said some thing about space on drive not matching I think it would be info in the MBR. But said it fixed it. But that's the kind of fix you are both aware of When Windows it let loose

Am just shutting down and starting back in XP as Unlocker does not work with 98

  skidzy 22:24 13 Mar 2008

Can you explore any of the files ?

Something seriously amiss there woody,those dates are almost laughable...

Cannot Explorer them, And unlocker can not delete them. It asked if I wanted to delete at next boot but it did not shift them. I may have to move all the Good stuff on to one of the other partitions and then delete the partition and recreate a new one

  woodchip 22:34 13 Mar 2008

I do not want to if there is another way as Acronis Dual boot is loaded on all partitions

If you boot into xp and takeownership woody,you can delete these from safemode normally.
