  2. Can't delete folder!

    have you tried using safe mode to delete it? i dont know what you had in it, but i have tried to delete files that said they had nothing in them from the program files folder and it said "DUNK" and NO but i was able to delete them from safe mode

  3. 0 byte folder cannot be deleted Problem

    I have a 0 byte folder and I can't delete it. I'm using win 7 64 bit.
    please help *Cry :cry:

    It says access denied when trying, please login as admin blah blah msgs....

    I've searched the net for hours, Trying unlocker, fileassassin, and all other 'file deleter' programs out there. tried on safe mode, tried the cmd commands, even in cmd it says access denied, tried the closing explorer.exe and doing the command. I tried changing permissions and atrributes and it says you do not have permission to view or edit this objects permission settings. I logged in as the Administrator and still no hope.

    the folder originally contained all my movies but since then i moved(using the move command) all of them someplace else(on another hdd) and I thought it was gone but the folder is still there, 0 bytes. It was shared when i deleted it and still appeared on the shared folders list but inaccessible coz it was already deleted so i 'unshared' the folder from the shared folders list. and so the problem began. the folder is still there and it is undeletable

    One surefire way to do it without deleting my files is copying all other files to another HDD and reformat it and copy it back again but my hdd is currently contains 1 tb out of 1.36 and i dont have any hdds with that free space to use.

    ALSO I CAN'T OPEN THE FOLDER it says

    Location is not available

    'directory' is not accessible.
    Access is Denied.

    i think its more of a windows glitch than a virus problem

    help??? *Frown I cannot delete a folder, I've tried everything. I have also tried safe mode and... :(

    0 byte folder cannot be deleted Problem

    The absolutely sure-kill way is to use a linux live disc (with NTFS support), or ultimatebootcd, or hiren's bootcd, or BartPE, (ad infinitum *Big Grin I cannot delete a folder, I've tried everything. I have also tried safe mode and... :D). Then get access to the file system and delete the folder.

    Did you try taking ownership?
