I have a file on my Vista machine that I can't get Vista to delete or
move. It is a 224 MOV/Quicktime video file. I have tried different
methods but I can't get it to go anywhere. I also have a folder that
has about 4Gb worth of individual video files that can't be moved as
one folder but if i move the individual files separately it works, but
it is very time consuming. The reason I can't move or delete is
because it locks up when it is calculating the amount of time needed
to delete the file. I have read the other posts and I have requested
the hotfixes from MSFT and rebooted and it still won't let me delete/
move them. I have also turned off the autotuning as instructed in
some of the posts and then rebooted and I still can't delete/move the
files. Has anyone been able to completely resolve this issue on their
Vista machine? Any help would be appreciated.
