I have a drive here which Windows Explorer has a picture of that doesn't agree with the picture cmd gives.


Had trouble copying a folder for moving and finished up finding out the folder is apparently empty.  All this fussing in Win Explorer.


So I got to delete it and it won't delete.


It commences the delete process and then tells me access is denied.


Took a look from CMD and it doesn't appear in the listing. 


So it looks to me like winexplorer is out of whack and needs to reconstruct its tables of files and directories. 


How do I make that happen?


Perhaps I should mention that on the way to this stage windows told me at one time that the recycle bin for that drive was invalid (or some such term) and asked me if I wanted it fixed, which I said I did.  So there's another indication of the explorer thing being out of whack.
