unable to delete folder

  reddwarfcrew 11:55 06 Nov 2005

Hi I had 2 partions that were both unused, so I merged them using Partion Magic 8.

As part of the merge process I had to create a folder that the contents of the G partition would be put into onthe F partition.

As both partitions were empty, this folder is empty, but I can't delete it.

It says 'access denied'.

I've tried deleting under safe mode, but the sam problem.

Okay, it doesn't cause any harm, but is just one of those niggly little things that you want to sort.

Any ideas?

Can you format the F partition, this should delete everything in the partition

Use a DOS boot disk to delete it, FAT32 just needs a plain XP system disk, NTFS would require this click here

This free utility should remove the folder.
