    Cannot Delete or Rename .fff (Hasselblad scanner) Files


    I am using am using a Hasselblad scanner attached to an Apple computer to scan old b&w negatives. The scanner creates .fff files, which is apparently a TIFF file by another name. When I move the files to my Windows 10 PC, I am unable to delete or renames the files or a directory that hold the files. When I try Explorer often hangs up and I have to close it. I can copy the files.


    This is not a permissions issue. I've tried repeatedly after rebooting to insure that the files are not open in another program. Using the Command Prompt does not help. In Safe Mode I was able to delete a directory of the files, but not rename an individual file.

    :)

    Cannot Delete or Rename .fff (Hasselblad scanner) Files

    Hi, can't really help.. FWIW here's what I see:
    I created a dummy.fff file (obviously not a genuine one) on my desktop.

    I noted it was associated with the Photos app.
    I could delete, recover, and rename it.

    Similarly if located in Pictures.

    I wonder what happens if you create a dummy file (e.g. rt click, new, txt file then rename it as dummy.fff ).
    Would Windows treat that any differently to the ones you've copied from your Apple device?

    What are your fff files associated with?
