I have an old HP Home Server that has served me well but I am trying to set it up to work in a modern system with Windows 8.1 home network primary but still accessing the old home server. In transferring my files from the home server to my new 5T hard drive I discovered some files that I can not copy or delete. Upon investigating I found that a folder on my old server includes a backup from an old Mint 10 OS that I had saved to the home server. In that file I found that there is a file in the Mint 10 backup that includes references to the Home Server and it creates a circular reference to the same folder in the system. In other words I think this locked the file and I have no Idea how to delete the offending file.
I think this could happen on any network system so it would not be the first time it came up.
Can anyone help me?
