Cannot delete file or folder ( 2 pages )

You cannot delete a file or a folder on an NTFS file system volume

I use VirDir this way to delete files or folders that are too long or undeleteable.
Click Choose Folder to select file or folder, then click Add.
Go to the new drive letter in Windows Explorer, right click on the file or folder to be deleted & click Delete.
Go back to the original drive letter & remove remnants ( if any ) of the file or folder.
Open VirDir, click on the new drive letter & then click Remove.
