Re: can't delete a folder in win 7

no i'm not using the applications key just the delete key and f2 to try and rename it. i should say that there aren't any files in the folder. there is one folder inside another one.

Just a thought. How about searching for the same filename in with Windows 7 search? Identifying the new location of the file may enable you to delete it there, and also cause it to disappear from the location where you find it right now or for it to become removable.

To be sure, are you using the options brought up by the applications key when attempting to delete, rename, etc., the file?
