    Default Folder is Not Moving and Not Deleting

    I have downloaded dictionary in which folder of voice language pronunciations in to other languages ( VOX type folder ) is sticked to my C drive. It neither moving nor deleting and thus it prevents to move whole dictionary folder from C drive to another drive,

    I have downloaded it from torrent.

    After making right click no option for rename or delete appears.

    Due to this folder I am not able to use dictionary or not able to move IT from C drive.

    Please show me a way to delete the folder and or rename the folder.

    I tried it in safe mode to delete or rename bu all efforts gone in vain.

    Please suggest some thing.

    Use a Linux live CD, load Linux and delete the folder in question. Normally works in such cases. I use one from Knoppix.

    @ axel, Nice link.

    I used to have XP and Windows 7 dual boot. Tried Knoppix in that scenario. Worked for me.

    Just like XP is an operating system from Microsoft, Knoppix is a Linux Operating system. You can use it from CD without installing it

    Download live CD from here : KNOPPIX - Live Linux Filesystem On CD

    Write it into a CD, and insert in CD drive. Restart the PC. Now you will find an option to choose Knoppix. Log in to Knoppix. Now simply check folder that is not giving any option to delete. Now you will find an option to delete it.

    Hope you understood.

    :the folder/file you are trying to delete doesnt exist"

    Try this

    Start > run > %appdata%/utorrent <<copy paste

    Select the torrent (If you haven't deleted it from root)

    start in utorrent>> right click>> remove and delete torrent + data


    Boot scan will be preferable

    As per suggestion downloaded KNOPPIX as a RAR file. After extractingf it it create a yellow folder of 3.43 GB.

    In RAR file extension shows that it is .iso file but after extracting it it gives yellow folder and no .iso file with cd icon.

    Now what to do and how to use it.

    No need to extract it. Simply reinstall Nero. Now you can see the file as iso image file. Double click it, write into a CD and restart the system. Knoppix will load. You will be directed to a window just like Windows desktop. Here you can see your disc drives. Open the folder which cannot be deleted. Delete it.

    Now shutdown and when the menu prompts, remove the disc. Thats all.

    I think you burned the CD as iso image. You need to write it as bootable disc. For that, simply double click the image and it will be burned automatically if you have Nero in your system. Once it is just like a bootable CD, simply insert the disc and restart the PC. It will automatically load. You will end up with a desktop like scene from where you can browse to the folder and delete it. After finishing you can just log out as in Windows and later take the CD when prompted.

    PS: Hope you tried Wordweb.

    (1)Did you try Ccleaner? download from filehippo.com
    (2)
    http://www.indiabroadband.net/attach...notmoving1.jpg
    presume you cannot move one by one each folder or all of them at one shot.l
    ( say about 40)
    (3) Take at random one folder and post the properties.
    File size read onlyArchive/file size/ opens with/ etc.

    search the folder name in windows registry
    type regedit in run and press enter
    then search for the folder name.
    if there are any keys then delete those keys.

    also check for the foldername/its contents names in taskmanager's processes list and end the tasks

    check for any such processes in startup using "msconfig" in run and selecting startup.if anything found then uncheck the entry ad retart the system.

    if neither of them works then use live cd's like ubuntu/kubuntu and delete the folder.
