.VOB won't delete
I have about 8GB's of .vob files on my computer that I can't seem to delete. When I try to send them to the trash I get a popup saying I need to authorize it, so I click authorize only for the popup to come up again and again and again....Basically it tells me over and over that I need permission in order to delete them.

I'm the administrator and only user on my computer, why is it telling my I don't have the authority/permission to get rid of 9GB's of crap on my computer??

RE: .VOB won't delete
Check the owner(s) of the files. An easy way to take ownership of the files
is through using either the ICACLS or TAKEOWN tools.

icacls c:\scripts /setowner johndoe
takeown /f c:\scripts
