I had a large file that was causing me problems when I tried to delete it using Windows XP.
It came up with can't delete as the file is in use by another program, this was not the case as I had re-booted.
After trying for several days I went into DOS and managed to delete the file using the command del *.*
I then wanted to remove the folder. But when I typed the command RD foldername it would not let me.
So a did a dir /a for attribute and lo and behold there is a hidden file there.
It is called Thumbs.db.
But if I try to unhide it using attrib /h thumbs.db it comes up with an error message i have never seen before
Not resetting file attribute.
Can anyone help me delete all files within a folder with no question and without any problems ?
Or remove a folder with a hidden file in it ?
