I have been attempting to "thin out" some unwanted files in order to gain space on my hard disk. While trying to wipe a Flight simulator game,right-clicking and checking the size showed the program size to be in the region of just under 3TB (terabytes)! Not easy on a 15Gb disk! Can anyone please solve this one? I am using a W98SE system
If you can't delete the file try scandisk with all the options enablesd and see if it corrects the file size.
The method I use when I get a file "stuck" is to empty the folder of everything I might need. Delete the folder, and that should take the bad file with it. Then if you need to re-create the folder and move everything back.
Ironman556. Thanks but it won't let me delete it anyhow it says change file name but then still it wont delete. Also it doesn't appear in Add/Remove list, (strangely enough). That only includes files on Original disk , not second hard disk. Could this be a connection problem. The games play ok
