Hi All,

I have this file it's a .doc file which is on a network server at my work. This file will not open, delete, rename, move, copy, zip - nothing. I think the problem is that the file name is too long, as I've had this issue before, but I have been able to rename the file. Or, I noticed there is a . in the middle of the file name.
I would either like to rename it, or delete it at this point.

I've check all my permissions for the server and files, everything is fine.

When I right click I have these options:
Open (nothing happens)
New (nothing happens)
Print (nothing happens)
Open With.... (Dialog box opens, but the file will not open in anything - I get the error message saying access denied)
Scan for Viruses (Scans the computer, not the file)
Send to

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Samm

Apparently there is something wrong with my permissions.

Please delete this post. Thanks

The 3 most commonly used applications for this type of problem are:
Unlocker: http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker/
Killbox: http://killbox.net/
MoveOnBoot: http://www.snapfiles...moveonboot.html
One of them will likely do the job.
