I've got a Pentium 3 900Mhz with 512Mb SDRAM and Windows XP PRO SP1.
I recently installed a new harddrive into my computer. It's a DiamondMax Plus 9 (6Y120P0). The filesystem is NTFS. My old HD is FAT32.
I moved some gigs from my old disk to the new one. No problems with that.
After downloading some files and putting them in a folder on my new HD the files seem to be exclusively locked. I can't copy, delete, rename,... them anymore.
The files are not marked as read-only.
I've got full administrative rights on the folder.
I ran diagnostics tools from Maxtor but no errors.
I checked the file system but no errors.
I checked for damaged sectors but no errors.
I ran a virusscan but no known virus detected.
However when I try to delete the folder, where the particular files are located, it is deleted successfully.
I also downloaded a program called "PC Inspector File Recovery". With that program I can copy the files to a different location. In this other folder the files don't seem to be exclusively locked anymore.
Has anyone got an idea what the problem might be?
Thanks in advance and best regards,
