Last week I used the recovery disk in Windows XP home edition. The system is now working OK but I cannot delete the file "My Old Disk Structure". When I try to do so I get the error message "Cannot delete ASTW_A~2: cannot find specified file".
I have deleted most of the individual folders but get this same message when I try to delete the "Documents and settings" folder. This folder is 11.4GB so I would obviously like to get rid of it if I can.
Likewise I cannot delete the Windows folder.In this case it appears to go through the delete process but it is still there and no error message. This file is 1.92GB in size.
Tried DrDelete but it cannot delete a file that cannot be found (unless you know differently?)and as far as I can see it will not delete a whole folder.
I have deleted all of the visible folders and files that I can which has reduced the folder to 662MB. The remainder consists of 2 folders containing hidden files. If I try to delete the whole folder I just get the afore mentioned message.
If I run a search for the file then I get the message "Cannot find....."
