    Hi all,

    For some reason I can't determine, certain psd files on my hard drive cannot be cut and pasted or deleted.

    They can be copied and pasted with no problems.

    I have tried the following:

    (i haven't tried safe mode yet as I have a deadline and it's strikes me as a workaround rather than a solution)
    Closed down all other apps.
    Stopped all non essential processes and services.
    still no luck.

    My system is custom built
    2.8 intel 4
    1.5 gig ram
    80 gb hard drive (15gb free space)
    Using photoshop 7

    I hope someone can help.

    Delete the preference file, in Photoshop CS, you will find it in:
    Adobe Photoshop CS Prefs.psp in the
    Documents and Settings\[user profile]\Application Data\Adobe\Photoshop\8.0\Adobe Photoshop CS Settings folder.
    See what happen.
    Another way to try is by rename the files.
    Good luck

    Have these files been copied off CD? They may be marked read-only. To check, right-click on the file, click Properties, and check for a tick in the box next to "Read Only".
