Problem Deleting Backup File in Temp File Area
« on: November 15, 2007, 08:32:55 pm »
I ran the temp file deletion program, but am unable to delete the backup file from last week. It is a large file (9,000 items). When I right click on the backup and click delete the file, it disappears, but then returns when I open backup folder again. A backup I just made today was promptly deleted and sent to recycle bin. However, last week's backup is still there. I went to Windows Explorer and found the folder, but it won't let me delete it. I am running Win-XP with latest Zsoft release. Thanks.

As you can't delete it in Explorer either it would seem that some of the files are in use... If a restart of your computer doesn't work (that should do the trick), or you just don't want to restart your computer try downloading the program Unlocker (http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker/) and 'unlock' the folder...
