Solved Undeletable File

Post by Master on Sat Mar 21, 2009 9:44 pm

Hi,
I have a problem and please excuse me if I posted it in the wrong section.

I was using an online photo editor and when I saved it, I was going to write .jpg but I accidentally put the "." only so it's saved to my desktop now with an unknown file type.

When I try to delete it, it says "Cannot delete file: Cannot Read file from source or disk".

I've tried many programs such as File Assassin, is there any other way to force delete it?

Thanks

You could try to delete it on reboot.

Do you have any other solutions than MoveOnBoot?

There is a free software called Unlocker. It will kill what ever process is blocking it form getting deleted.

Grab it here:
