can't delete a file
Posted on 2008-10-08
I restored thousands of files from ntbackup to a folder c:\restore, only to decide I needed later to delete this folder. One file kept me from doing so. It's attributes are HSA, it's 0 bytes. If I attempt to delete in Windows Explorer I get:
"Error deleting File or Folder"
Cannot delete file: cannot read from the source file or disk.
I was able to take ownership with other files and delete. I ended up finding the troubling file, selecting it, inverting my selection and deleted everything else no problem. It's not causing a big problem for me, but I'd like to understand what's going on.
I can see the file. I unhid System and Hidden files. I ran a CHKDSK on the drive which found no problems. CA8HMJKT. is the filename.
