I am trying to remove a bunch of old files that were restored from a failed server (WIN NT)to my current server(Win2k3). When I try to delete them I get this message "make sure the disk is not full or write protected and that the file is not in use". These files are old and are NOT in use, I checked. Many have the ? mark entries in the ACL in the security tab and many also seem to be compressed. They are old .doc files, so I dont believe they are tied to any runing processes. I need to delete these things, it is holding me up fro more important tasks.
