Hi,

I'm having trouble erasing a folder from my hard drive. The folder contains three layers of subfolders but they are all empty (I've even check to see if there are any hidden files in the folder - all empty). When I try to erase the main folder, or any of it's subfolders, I get the following message:

"Cannot find (folder name of the last subfolder). Cannot find the specific file."

If the folder doesn't exist, why am I seeing it? If it does exist, why can't I erase it?

Any solutions?

KillBox Download Link

http://killbox.net/

KillBox is a program that can be used to get rid of files that stubbornly refuse to allow you to delete them.

Usage Information:

Download this file and run the killbox.exe file. When it loads type the full path to the file you would like to delete in the field and press the Delete File button (looks like a red circle with a white X). It will prompt you to reboot, allow it to do so, and hopefully your file will now be deleted.

I tried killbox - the program tells me that the folder don't exist! This is strange because I can both see and select the folder within killbox and within Windows Explorer.

Now what?
