Need Help With Files

Recommended Posts

Okay, here's the deal....... I can't rename or delete any files or folders that contain MP3 files, at first I thought it was just the ones in the My Documents sub-folder "My Music", but I can't rename or delete any that is on the desktop either. Any ideas?

apparently this sort of thing happens sometimes with itunes and mac o/s if the mp3 files are damaged ......also if files are encrypted in some way this can be a hassle..or some sort of script problem..could be something to do with compression..also..if you`re using google desktop..this can happen..don`t ask me how...something to do with file indexing....hope this is helpful... :)

this also....."Error Message When Attempting File Delete when using a Windows Desktop or laptop"..i don`t know if this info is applicable to the o/s you are using.....

Running Windows 2000 Pro.

I get this error message..........

Error deleting File or Folder

"Cannot Delete (File Name): There has been a sharing violation.

The source or destination file may be in use."

I don't see how it could be in use, I have rebooted several times and went straight to the file and tried to delete it.

how about making a copy and then delete the old folder--sometimes there are strange glitches that can be corrected with something as simple as this

Actually, that should work. I didn't think of that before. Then delete the copy.

But don't listen to Dude. It won't work with ine of these!!

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
