hi i have the above with xp pro and while transferring files they appear in a seperate folder of their own i can open them then a subfolder and still have the information, question is can i delete the first one but still retain the information in the second one?

If you delete a folder in a tree, the subfolders will be deleted as well.

that was what i thought, next question is how one gets round it?

a) open the folder and only select the items you want to delete


b) move (e.g. drag & drop) the sub-folders / files that you want to keep to somewhere else (e.g. another folder)

Drag all the items out of the folder, then delete the folder.
