i have two files on my system and for some reason i simply CAN'T delete them.
whenever i try to delete the files i get an error message:
Cannot delete file: Cannot read from the source file or disk.
i also can't move them to a different location or change their file names.
one file has a .jpg extension and the other has an .xls extension and both their icons are of the generic icons used when they aren't associated with a program.
oh and another strange thing has to do with their file size.... they are both zero KB!
i'm 99% sure these were files which attachments to an email i got and downloaded them. i'm also pretty sure they were once accessible files and were surely larger than 0 KB.
there's a chance that i deleted the original files and that these 0 KB problematic files are some kind of reminiscence of the original deleted ones. but i'm not completely sure about that.
can someone please help me get rid of them?
it's not that they are causing me grief or something, but it's just annoying to me that they're stuck there.
