Error code when deleting a file.

Specs: Windows 7, pentium 4
I am trying to delete some files from my computer. They are SAV files. I have never had a problem doing it before, but now I get an error code. The code usually differs by a number or two, the latest one was 0x80070570 and the message was : "An unexpected error is keeping you from deleting the file. If you continue to receive this error you can use error code search for help" However the only thing I can find on the error is associated with a Windows 7 load. I do have Windows 7 by the way.

Since you are deleting these files you must know the name of the program generating them.

Is the program open?

The are saves for an online game. The game is always open on my main computer, the saves are on an external hard drive. I can delete the files on the main computer with the game without a problem, but my back ups will not delete from the external hard drive. They used to and now all of a sudden they will not.

can you move the files back to the computer succesfully?
if not this indicates an issue with the drive or usb interface

Well I am not at home, but I can move them from my computer to the hard drive with no problem at all. I will try to move one back tonight and we can continue this tomorrow. Thanks for the help.
