Deleting Mystery Files
July 5, 2004 1:48 PM Subscribe
Win2K: a crashed FTP transfer left several zero-K files on my desktop, which I cannot delete. I have tried Safe Mode, I've tried del/deltree/rmdir in DOS, I've tried MoveOnBoot, and nothing works. The files are not in use. No handles for them exist. The error messages are all variants of: "File cannot be found or does not exist." It's as if the delete function just can't see them, but I can see them right there in Windows Explorer. How can I delete these buggers?
