Cannot delete files or folders of data store

I'm trying to remove some of the ISO in our data store to free up space.  Some of them we were able to remove without problem, there are a few that will not a reason delete, it goes through the process, as it's deletion then when it is at 80% on the status bar, a message "cannot delete the file ISOs/resources 2 k 5" ideas how I can get rid of this folder?  The folder is not empty, I tried to delete the file first, then the file and get the same error twice.

are you sure that this .iso in question is not connected to any guest?

  • Cannot delete files and music always there but not display upward when I connect to the computer?

    Hi all

    Recently, I had a lot of problems with the music does not or don't play not I decided to delete all my e260 music and start again.  That's where the real problem started.

    For some reason I can't delete three of the albums on my player.  Each of the albums have what appear to be corrupted in them files. My computer does not recognize the file type and file extension is given so I don't know what they are.  Each file "appears" to 4 GB in size but that may not be appropriate for my e260 is obviously only 4 GB in size!

    Whenever I try to delete them I get an error message reading "cannot delete file: cannot read the source file or disc»

    I tried to update the firmware, reset e260 to factory default settings and made 'restore' thingy (where you hold registration and plug it into the computer, etc.) and these files are still there.

    After reading this thing of disk checking on this forum, I did this.  I was then able to remove two of the albums, but when I tried to delete the third album renamed 'a' and the damaged file shows 0 bytes in size, but I still can not remove.  However, I can move it to the folder music to any other folder.  I just can not remove!  When I do, I get an error message saying "cannot delete f: cannot find the file specified. '.  Be sure to only specify the path and the correct name.

    After all that I started my e260, and now I find that 2 other albums are always on it, even if they do not display any where when I connect it to the computer.  I can see and read these albums on the drive, and they seem well, they do not appear to be there when I plug it into the computer and look for them in windows Explorer.  The music folder is not hidden also.  These two albums are not part 3 albums that I could not remove, they are actually part of the new substance started sort of all these problems with the music does not and is not only now that they are the display upwards and play but are not appear when connected to the computer!

    I know it's probably not a lot of information but can someone tell me how to fix this?  If not, can I just format the * bleep * thing or I'll then have an e260 dead?

    See you soon,.


    PS: Sorry for the long windedness of this post.

    Format will not remove the firmware, which is the operating system of the Sansa. It removes only the content that you have added. It will go back to what it was when it was new out of the box.

    MTP does not matter if you have never used it. The ghost album can be just a list remains in your database file. Nevertheless, we must get rid of this corrupt file, so Format is probably your best option.

    For what it's worth, to connect with the PSG, your computer needs Windows Media Player 10 or 11 is installed. XP comes with WMP 9, so he will not see the Sansa in MTP mode. unless you have updated.

  • Download a file from a local data store

    Hi all

    I was wondering if it is possible to generate scripts downloading a file from a local data store on a Windows Server? Also, there are scripts available to perform such a task?

    Thank you


    Just guessed myself using the cmdlet copy-datastoreitem - good KB article here

    After the connection to your vCenter server, connect to the data store and mount the source as a PSdrive data store, and then use the cmdlet.  It also works well download a data store and the downloading of a data store: just spent around objects in - point and - Destination.

    At first glance, it seems that you need to know the source path of the data store.

  • Cannot delete files .ai

    I can't delete .ai files in Adobe Illustrator v.10 running on Vista.

    error that says "... cannot delete file is used beginning."

    I tried everything the web has to offer including: start-up, different removal software, changing aiicon.dll, shit, chsdsk, etc.

    I sure there are a lot of people who have this problem, I scan the web, however, no solution have seems to be found.

    Help, please!

    I had this problem frequently both. HAVE and. Files EPS on Windows XP, different versions of Illustrator, including 7 and 10. You can try this program:

    It runs quietly in the background until there is a sharing violation (for example, you can not delete a file, etc.). Then it pops up a window showing what process has the file locked. With Illustrator files, the culprit is usually Windows Explorer... my guess is that it tries to generate a thumbnail preview, but somehow never quite finished and leave the open file. You will be able to kill the offending process (which is kind of how dirty to do things, but drastic times... you know). Then you should be able to delete the files without problem.

    Hi Malcolm,

    Thanks for posting the request in the Microsoft Community.

    It would be great if you can answer the following questions:

    1 have had any changes made on the computer before the show?

    2. when exactly do you face the question?

    3. what files you're talking about? Are you referring to all documents?

    4. do you get an error message? If Yes, what is the full and exact error message?

    Method 1:

    I suggest refer you to the link and try to run Microsoft fix:

    Diagnose and repair Windows files and folders problems automatically

    Method 2:

    Try to run Microsoft Safety Scanner for any malware or spyware infection and check if it helps.

    Note: the Microsoft Safety Scanner expires 10 days after being downloaded. To restart a scan with the latest definitions of anti-malware, download and run the Microsoft Safety Scanner again. The data files that are infected must be cleaned only by removing the file completely, which means that there is a risk of data loss.

    If you're still having problems, please reply and we will be happy to help you.

    Thank you.

  • General issue of file on why my data store has 3 files with a _1 and _2

    OK, I'm a little new to this thing of VMware, but I was the main actor in this migration and have been the building and move all our servers to our ESX 3.5 with a back-end SAN platform.

    I did well until this weird thing, that I think that I understand, but I just don't know how to solve, or how it happened.  And right next to the bat, no I did not the instant code with this server... those that have been cleaned in the time there... Now

    My situation:

    I have virtual machines that are created equal, that they all have a 'C' drive for the operating system on another dedicated "LUNS for OS Storage" and then they have their readers of 'd' of the newspapers "SQL" on a dedicated LUN in mirror, and then the 'E' drive is on dedicated aonther "LUN DATA.

    If all servers have 2 or 3 LUNS associated with them. That's how the SAN engineer and I designed it. OK works great.  Until one day, I noticed that I was shy about 40 GB space on my SQL LUN. Took time but I think I found the culprit, but I don't know how to solve this problem, or if it will break my dose. So here I ask you all.

    One of my servers called "Server01" has 2 drives associated with it and supposedly 2 / 2 data warehouses, or even what he had initially when it was built in August!

    Now, the operating system data store is fine.

    When I'm on Console V and I click with the button straight on my server and go to his 'change settings' is what I see:

    SERVER01of properties on the "change settings of ' Advanced ' your drive hard 1" to the appropriate LUN and all the VMDK and those files are there. ""  (IE OS LUN 10)

    But "hard drive 2" pointing to the right LUNS (IE SQL LUN11), but his record is called "server01_2"?  What?    She was built and given a hard drive on this LUN, but the name of the folder is wrong.   So I'll browse my store data and low and this is, I have 3 files with the same server name (IE... ( Server01, Server01_1, Server01_2 ) OK so what happened? Why? How? and how in the heck can I get my space back 40gig?

    I checked records the name of the original server, as well as the other files on the data store with the numbers in the annex of _1 and 2 and they have all VMDK files in it... of course dates on all the VMDK files are different and I guess that since the server points to the folder called + "SERVER012" + and its VMDK file has the most recent data buffer on this subject since the last Vmotion We did it, he must then use this folder.

    OK great... but now that messes up my folder structure, and if this server does not use other VMDK files and folders he ate up to 40 GB of my precious space!

    I'm pretty sure when I went on vacation last year, because it is the time of the timestamp on the VMDK files in older records and "dates of the task of the procedures as" trying to clone, suspend, model, reconfgure, snapshot "etc. that the other members of the team tried to do something, which lead to my having 3 files on my store of data with 3 VMDK files in them.?  Nobody seems to know or remind us what it is they are trying to do... great... Well...

    I just want to know + If the server points to a folder called "Server01_2" and it has the most recent date stamp on this subject, can I then rename other files? + and then I can delete them?   And if I successful, how can I get my server to have the name of the correct folder again?    Instead of a * _2* on the end of it?

    Any suggestion would be great!    I learned the hard way that if your VM operating system is built and pointing to a file with a specific name, and you try to rename it to match the server, your operating system does not start!. LOL I hope that is not the case with a folder that has a 20gig assigned to HDD with oner VMDK file in it...


    Thank you


    No problem.  Cold migration allows you to move all your files in a data store.  You can use svmotion to move disks to different LUN, but the syntax is somewhat more complex.  The help option shows exactly how to move a machine virtual disk at a time.  Basically, you can move a disk with the config file, so basically, you move the config file and the disk of your choice in the data store that you need.  Move back the config for the original data store file, then repeat the process with the next disc.

  • Cannot delete file win xp sp3

    I have two files that I can't remove.  The name is avidemux_2.5_r7200_win32.exe I d/l from somehow, they changed their date on themselves at the 06:43 04/30/1986 on all attempts, the error message is the same: it is used by another person or program.  I realize that there is a perion in the middle of the file name.

    I can't change the name.

    I tried to remove it by using the right click, delete file and tasks folder, cmd prompt del filename and cmd prompt deltree filename.

    I tried to change the attributes with the only success beint removing hidden.

    I am able to copy the files to another directory, but the copy is undeletable also (so now I have 4 copies).

    I'm unable to move the file to another directory.

    I used regedit and delete any key with this file name (the company is the nth file).

    I restarted in safe mode and cannot be removed using the foregoing.

    There's a copy on my backup NAT and I can not remove this file from here either.  Understand an output, please.

    Well, I thought I knew about the removal of things but...  I really need some help here.


    This looks like a nasty piece of malware.  No legitimate program protects himself as well...

    My next step would be to start from an operating system on a CD.  I love the free Hirens Boot CD
    Hirens: <> >

    Download the file .zip, extract it to the hard drive, and double-click the file ".cmd" generate/create a bootable CD.  Boot your system from the CD and select the option 'Mini Windows XP'.
    Booting from CD does several things for you.  First, it ensures that none of the files on the hard disk are "used" and in the second place, malicious programs on the disk hard which can actively prevent the deletion of one such file will not present when booting from a CD.

    AprΦs the dΘmarrage, you might want to make sure that there are no attributes system or hidden on the file that you want to delete and you will find a multitude of utilities on this CD that should be able to get rid of this file for you.  In my view, there are also utilities anti-malware on this CD that you can choose to run while you're started towards him.  Let me know if it helps


  • Finding deleted files and folders

    I have a woman living under my roof, which has decided to delete the value for the year of my photos and my files into oblivion...

    Any way to recover files that were not only sent in the trash but empty from there?
    I tried to restore my system to a date earlier and all records were back, but they were all empty.

    Is it possible to recover these files and folders still intact?

    Thank you


    It depends on how your file has been deleted.

    If your file was shreded using third party software so it is not possible...

    If it was simply window option Removing guy then... you have a restore option... You have not installed or copied all the files etc in the same place has PROVIDED...

    The best third party tool, you can use is the recovery of the PC a third-party tool...

    If you copied or whatever installed to the location where the files have been deleted... then stop trying you Cann't get back them...


  • Cannot delete files - file name too Long

    I copied all the files under C:\Users\ to a backup disk (NTFS).  Then I tried to delete the Temporary Internet Files folder.  I'll tell an error message:

    The file names would be too long for the destination folder.  You can shorten the file name and try again, or try a location with a shorter path.

    When I drilled far problem files were I saw a bunch of files with very long names.  I right click on one (in the hope to rename it) and the only available options are: open, pine in the Start Menu, send to.  Delete, rename and properties were missing.

    How can I get rid of these files without having to reformat the hard drive?
