Unable to empty recycle bin
Posted on 2007-03-26
I'm having problems deleting some files and folders on one of my 2003 servers. I can send the items in question to the recycle bin, but when I try to empty the recycle bin I get an message:
Error Deleting File or Folder.
Cannot delete file:
I've tried restoring the items and then deleting while holding down Shift, but get the same message. I've renamed the files in case the filenames were causing a prob, but still the same. I've checked the permissions and everything seems fine with both administrators ans system having full control.
The files/folders are copies of our user home directories from a different server that were simply copied using Cobian Backup 8
Any suggestions as in total the folders take up almost 3GB!!
