Cannot delete file: Cannot read from source file or disk.
Posted on 2008-10-08
I am attempting to delete a folder on a windows server 2003 system.
If I attempt to delete the file I get an error: "Cannot delete file: Cannot read from source file or disk."
I note that if I look at the properties of the folder I only get a General and Customize TAB, whereas other folders have General, Sharing, Security, Web Sharing and Customize TABs.
I also note that the folder has a trailing space. eg "Sample Unit Trust " (Note that there is a space after the word Trust).
I have used the command prompt to find the shortname sample~1 and attempted to delete it, without success.
I am stuck on this one as much as the folder is stuck to my filesystem. Can any expert help me
