Unable to delete zero byte files
Posted on 2004-10-24
Downlaoded 4 sound files from email (aol) and as well as the 4 wav files, another 4 appeared. All have odd names such as CAZ6037X. but no extension - all zero bytes. When I click on them, notepad opens and I get a dialog box "Cannot find file. Do you want to creat a new one" Doesn't matter what I click, notepad stays open. When I try to delete, I get an error - Cannot delete file - cannot read from source or disk.
I've tried attrib command but also get error saying cannot find files. Searched usenets and followed a couple of other things - so many I have forgotten the specifics.
This has baffled a few of us in the office.
Thanks in advance
