I'm unable to delete various Quicken files from a CD-RW that I back the data up to. The files are marked "read-only" and after unchecking "read-only" from the Properties menu and then trying to delete them, I still get a "files are read-only" message. Any suggestions as to how to get around this problem?

Forgot to add that reformatting the disk isn't a solution - I have other files on the disk I need to keep.

Just checking - did you select "Archive" after you unchecked Read Only - then click OK?

No, Archive is not selected. The error message sys "Access denied" even though I unchecked the Read-Only box.
