Re: Help won't let me delete a directory
Hi, Thanks for your reply,
Ok, What I have is a Maxtor 100 gig external harddrive. Not quite sure how
to format it. Do I just go to computer and then click format and then it
should get rid of all those undeletable files and be ready to use again. I
worry a little bit of knowledge can make me dangerous. I got in to this
trouble because I thought I know more than I do.
If what I say above makes sense let me know and I will format. will not do
anything till I hear.
Thanks for your help.
