HI guys. I've recently used the windows built in backup utility to backup my fonts since I was deleting a few. So now that I realize that the backup itself is so huge itself that it would be better to just leave the fonts alone rather than using utility. So I decided to restore the backup but it won't work. I had saved the backup file onto my desktop named backup.bkf. And the program just won't recognize the backup and that it's there. So then I decided to just delete it. And it won't delete either. An error appears instead when tried to delete which says this file cannot be deleted. What should I do?

THANKS :thumbsup:

Try renaming the file
backup.txt or even old.txt and see if it will delete

Try taking ownership of the file before deleting it.
