Cannot delete unwanted files...

I had those unwanted files since 2007. Every time I try to delete those files, I receive the message, "Cannot delete file. Cannot read from the source of file or disk". I even tried to rename the file and I receive that "cannot rename file...". So I wrote to FixYa and they said that I should go to the Safe Mode, but nothing was solved. I even tried some "file-killer" software and they said that the unwanted files do not exist. I even tried to delete them using the Command Prompt, and it said that "Could Not Find C:whatever".

Any ideas of how to delete those files? I am really disappointed.

Thank you.

So why you didn't format your system?!!
Make a backup from your files and then format your system and make a new partion for it and then install your OS.
It could save you!

Text memory full states on notification cant receive texts but i have no messages saved so i st .arted clearing out stuff tha had a storage i still have full memory. HELP PLEASE


Dear Sir\Madam,
I had a similar problem, and I was able to solve the problem by simply following the below steps. 1. If probably your phone has a bluetooth device and you have been receiving gallery files(i.e. Photos, Musics or Videos) via bluetooth, note that this files are stored too on your phone memory not the memory cards and this may consume space on the phone memory. So, try and move those files that you received via bluetooth in your received folder on your phone memory to the location of your memory card. This may probably free the space on your phone. 2. if you have been receiving bluetooth files as a message into your phone depending on the type of phone you are using, simply save them into your memory card by selecting the memory card path and delete them after saving so as to free space on the phone memory. Then try to delete as well some unwanted or junk messages from your phone in have more space on your phone memory.
Hope the information actually help. Regards

Memory low delete some date


Memory low : delete some data This is the error message that appears in my N73 mobile once in few days. There will be no space for new messages and no messages can be sent at this time. But the good news this error text will not be present in the mobile for more than a day and the next day every thing is all right. Its just like a viral fever i think, comes and goes with no treatment required for recovery. Here are some tips which can help you to come out of "Memory low delete some data" virus in your mobile phone especially nokia
Do's
-i think this is the best one
the reason for this is lifeblog, u can find that the file lifeblog.db will be the file that has increased its file size and causes this error, just go to lifeblog-settings-item types-and uncheck all the files here, after some time the memory will be normal
-delete some files in your phone memory so that you keep receiving the new messages(your phone memory will be very less at that time)
-try to close all the applications by pressing menu button for some time
-switch off the mobile and take the battery out and then insert it back and switch on
-after you regain the memory in your phone put some files in it like a song or other files so that you can delete in the emergency times
-be patient this situation comes because of some error in memory console of your mobile and it will be solved without our interference
Dont's
-Dont get panic and step into Nokia Care for firmware update this will never help the cause
-Dont try to get any new anti virus as this will never solve

My Sony Bluetooth problem


Deleting files from your memory card is not enough. Usually the files received threw bluetooth will stored to phone memory and then prompted to store somewhere else by the user. So delete/move unwanted files from phone memory to memory card. Delete all the messages stored in your SIM card too.
