This is a repost of a thread that was originally posted on a...uhh..rival forum. But because i need fast help, i'm also posting it here.


I copied the contents of a DVD - two folders by the name "Season 5" and "Season 6". There were short clips in these folders. It took a while to copy as the DVD was poorly burned. I moved these 2 folders after copying them to another folder - "dsa". Well, after moving the 2 folders i can't acces them ("Acces denied") or delete them.

I've tried more than 20 ways of deleting them, anything ranging from safe mode, dos operation, different programs, registry hacks, you name it.

The frigging thing can't be deleted. "Acces denied. Make sure the disk isn't full or write protected or that the file isn't in use". Of course it's not in use. I've shutdown absolutelty everything except the processes that need to run for Windows not to crash and i get the same sh!t.

I can't take it anymore, it's just simply too annoying to bare!

Someone please help.

BTW, i can't connect my hard drive to another computer as it's SATA and anyone who has SATA that i know is on friggin' vacation!

Download and install unlocker, a handy free app.

Right click on the folder in question, then click Unlocker. On the dialog that pops up, select Delete from the dropdown box and click OK.

It should delete it. If not, let us know and we'll try something else.
