Okay well I was doing some of my work, and listening to music off my computer with WMP, when I realised that it was synchronising all my music onto my USB.

So now my USB is full and for some reason WMP would not delete them automatically (though its system). So Ive begun deleting all the music manually and Ive foud that some of the folders cannot be deleted and a error message comes up saying. " Cannot remove folder __ : The directory is not empty"

And I know theres nothing in there even hidden files. So whats happening?

I've had something similar happen...I believe that I ran chkdsk /r on the partition in question...and then was able to remove them.
