I have installed Cobian on my laptop. Using XP prof. Everything went fine and first backup was created. Examined the backup: didnt like what looked like....I probably put in the wrong instruction for the directory to backup. Anyway, I found the backup file right where it was supposed to be and and decided to DELETE it and redo/replace the whole backup file.

Started using the usual file delete procedures. Found that DELETE just would not eliminate the file. Figured that I would delete the file and start a new backup with Cobian. Told it to just make one backup with no other entries.

Read all the help and FAQ provided by Cobian8. It just didnt address deletion.

Also tried to redo the same procedure to overwrite the first backup file.

Anybody else have this problem .....any ideas on how to delete the files that Cobian makes.

Any input would be appreciated. r
