    Win 2K... 160 W/D harddrive partitioned into 4 aprox 40 gig drives C,E,F,G.

    I was attempting to load all my Image programs onto the F drive, as they default to C, I was changing the path before I installed them.

    I noticed that on the F drive 2 files named "Photo Programs" were showing, so I drug all the programs from one to the other and figured I'd delete the empty one. This seems to have caused problems with the shortcuts, so I decided to uninstall all and start over. Everything went well untill I got to the last empty "photo programs" folder, it will not delete ! I have ran chkdsk , run registry mechanic, defragged, I just get a error message when I try to delete-"Cannot read file: Cannot read from source file or disc" I tried removal from safe-mode, that didn't work either...this is the ONLY folder on that partition, anyone know how to clear it off ? Thanks...Rhett
