I have 10 folders with weird names

I have 10 folders with names like "1a94ba931309c19e25d9ab" in my iomega and, inside each of them, there's one folder called "update", which cannot be accessed. I'm not allowed to delete all these folders, I don't know why... What can I do to get rid of them?

They are temp folders used by windows. If you can't delete them, they are being used by windows. They don't do any harm and can, in general, be deleted once windows has finished with them.

I have a dell laptop and a HP desktop computer, and a 1TB Iomega external hard drive. THE PROBLEM..the video folders/files can be accessed on the laptop but not on the desktop ? the folders are empty


Hi,
it might be that the files are hidden and the option on the desktop to show hidden files is not enabled.. Try enabling hidden files and folders. Start--Control Panel--- Folder Options---View and then enable hidden files and folders.
Hope it helps,

Use your Windows login password to access the folder and the contents. Hope this helps
