You may have to call in sighted help.  Restart system and keep tapping F8 until a menu is displayed in which there is an option to boot to command prompt.

Navigate to the folder containing the file, and attempt to delete from  there.

Subject: [BCAB] A File Problem


Can anyone help with this little mystery?  I have a large .WAV file which I cannot delete: I am told that the "File is in use".  The file is plainly not in use, for it occurs from the start of a session.  I think it must be corrupt in some way.

I have tried going into a command box: deleting it, removing the directory - but all to no effect.  I have tried looking at attributes under file properties, but I don't really know what I am doing.

Any suggestions?
