Can't Delete Folder

There is a folder where i can't delete because it says it cannot read from folder or disk. It's got a bunch of random **** in there which I cannot even open or do anything with it. And I think it's causing the system to not be able to read the new songs I put on there. SOS!!!

    Ok well I solved my own problem. But for the other dude, set your sansa to PlayForSure (msc). Open my computer and right click on the sansa file. Click properties, tools, error checking, and check both selections for the window that pops up. Then start the scan. When it's done it should be fine. If it did it in half a second, change your mode to Rhapsody and do these steps. You can change the mode from the settings in the menu of the sansa, not on your computer. Hope this helps.

I'm not sure how you got the shortcut on your computer, but if it is a normal shortcut, you should be able to just delete it by pressing Delete.
If not...
You can remove it via the registry. Open the run dialog and type regedit.exe. If it prompts your for admin privileges hit continue.
On the left side is a bunch of directories. Navigate to:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace

Once you've expanded the NameSpace folder, you should see a bunch of random folders (keys) with crazy names. Find the one with the name {D20EA4E1-3957-11d2-A40B-0C5020524153} and delete it. Then go to your desktop and hit F5.
Hope this fixes your problemEricthecmh

You probably have a disk-drive with some "bad" sectors.
So, when you try to read the sectors that contain the directory for the 'My Music' folder,
that sector cannot be read, and thus Windows reports an "empty" folder.

It's probable that your disk-drive is about to _completely_ fail, not just _partially_.
Make a backup of what files & folders that _can_ be read.

Cant delete a folder off my desktop

What folder are you trying to deleter off your desktop? Remember that, if you are IN that folder, then it is in use and can not be deleted. Go to a folder ABOVE that folder in the Tree and then try to delete. Remember, to delete a folder, everything in and below the folder must be deleted also. It may be necessary to delete them separately first.

Can not delete anything on maxtor basics 160gb

Open the drive through My Computer and right click on any file folder hat you want to delete. Choose Properties. When that screen opens, uncheck the box next to Read Only, click Apply, then Ok. See if you can delete the folder. If that works, then you will have to do that for every folder/file that you want to delete.

My computer is filling up

defrag you HDD, that is one of the best simple solutions you may be able to do.

open my computer

right click on your local drive (C:)

then click properties

click tools then select disk defragment

then click on defrag now

on vista all you have to do is click on defrag now, on XP you will have to see the status first, then defrag.

on XP if the colors you see are separated, you really have to defrag, this will take at least an hour, depending on the status of your HDD.

Deleted Raw Folder

Probably you just deleted it into oblivion. On floppy disks in Windows, if you delete something, it's really gone - there's usually no trash can on a floppy disk. Probably it works the same on a CF card, which is also regarded as a kind of removable disk by Windows. Or was the file already on your hard disk?
