Can't delete anything
Gnopps Apr-16-02 02:08 PM
Hi everyone.

After reinstalling Windows today I discovered to my suprise that I can't delete anything! When I using my Windows 2000 try to delete something I get a message saying something like (I've translated from Swedish) "X can't be removed. The path can't be found. Make sure that you are using right path.". My guess is that this has something to do with the trashcan being messed up since I can delete when entering the command line.

Has anyone got any ideas on how to fix this?

Reinstalled? As in you installed Windows 2000 back over itself? If it is giving you those kinda problems, I would reformat the drive and do a clean install.

If figured out that it is my recycle bin that isn't working. When I disable it I can delete without any problems. Maybe it is just a directory or so missing on my HD? It seems like the path Win2000 is looking for the recycle bin in is corrupt, does anyone know what the correct one should be?

Hi found the error. Somehow the directory "C:\Recycled" had been converted into a file. I deleted the file and made i new directory called "Recycled". And it works! For now...

And I want to say thank you to everyone redaing and helping at this forum. Thank you!
