I recently backed up folders and files that were located on a WinXP Fat32 partition using Simple Backup Simple Backup, Version 4.84 by Veritas. The folders/files were copied to a CD. I then re-formated my harddrive, reinstalled WinXP as NTFS partitions and tried to reinstall my folders/files using Simple Backup Restore. I was able to reinstall the folders/file trees to the new partition. However, I tried to move several subfolders that were reinstalled outside of their original directory tree by cutting and pasting. For example: The main folder was named Backup then a subfolder was called Apps and subfolder under Apps was named Patches. I moved the Patches folder to the root drive D: . The Patches folder shows up now as D:\Patches in Windows Explorer, however I cannot access the folder or delete it. I keep getting an error message that says Access Denied.
How can I remove these folders?
