Window XP is writing to a file called Change.log and I can't delete the file
Posted on 2008-10-20
I have a second hard drive in my Windows XP desktop PC. This hard drive used to be a system drive in an old PC. I am trying to delete all the files so i can use it for storage but a couple of files are resisting deletion. i have gone through all of the threads I could find (this helped me delete a lot of stubborn files). But I still have this change.log. I can't delete it because windows is using. It is a 360kb file and windows is writing to it within the last few minutes. Is there some type of logging I have turned on that I could turn off? I know there are programs to force deletion but I don't know what would happen if i forced deletion of a file windows was using.
