[Question]delete files


Recommended Posts

I want to delete a bunch of files, but it says I don't have acces to them, tho I'm administrator and have no limits to the computer usage.

How can I delete these?


EDIT: I tried in dos with rmdir etc... didn't work either...

Speaking for myself here, I am not a psychic, so where is the folder?, what's it named?, what's in it?, what are its attributes? and what exactly did you try using rmdir and DOS?

Sound like the permissions are hosed.

Try this:

If you haven't already done it turn off "Use Simple file sharing"

To do this open my computer, select tools menu, folder options.

All the way at the bottom of the list on the Views tab under advanced settings is a check box to "Use simple file sharing (Recommended)" remove the checkmark and click OK to close the Folder Options window.

Now right click on the drive/folder with the problem. (If you select the drive you can reset permissions for all files/folders contain on it and start over.)

Select Properties and then select the Security Tab.

Click the Advanced button.

Select the Owner tab.

Select your preferred user name or group, and place a check in the box for "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects"

Click OK

and wait it takes about 5-10 minutes dependingupon the size of your drive and how much stuff you have on it.

If it comes up with a security warning click yes to replace permissions.
