HELP please.

 

Thanks.

It's not a program using it as I've rebooted and it's not hung up in any process. It has to be something to do with Windows permissions/security. I'd like to figure this out using Windows if at all possible.

 

Thanks for the reply.

If you can not figure it out, then trying unlocker may work for you. Good luck.

I went ahead and used it and it worked. Was wasting too much time on it.

 

Thanks immensely!

Even though the permissions said you could read and write and stuff, you need full control and your name added to it. To do this, you need to click a button in the folder place that will give you advanced options. I'm not sure the correct path, add I only had to do this once and never play with permissions. I almost want to convert my hard drive to fat because everything is better in my eyes.

Yeah, I added the user to the folder with full security permissions, as well as another user I was testing. Logged off no luck, rebooted no luck. And one was in the Administrator group which had full rights. Go figure....Unlocker to the rescue.
