    Hi,

    I have xp pro sp2 with a single HD partitioned C:\ & D:\ I use D: for storing files only. I have some video files on D that i wanted to delete, but i cannot delete these files, The files were created by my VideoMate TV gold Capture card, as it lets me record tv programs just as with a VCR. These files are now occupying most of the space on my D: partition. I get msg: Cannot delete, access denied, make sure disk is not full or write protected, and that the file is not currently in use.
    I can however delete other files on this drive, like mp3's and documents.:confused:

    Please help,
    Timone

    Just the other night I had a file I could not delete. So I booted up to Safe Mode and was able to delete under that condition. You might try that to see if it works.
