Hey guys, it's me again......
I've created myself yet another problem.
The gist of the problem lies with the fact that the latest backup evidently was not set as I usually have it [selected folders only] and it copied
So when I did a restore from the latest backup, I have thousands upon thousands of useless images.
There are numerous icons/logos/pictures from ads etc. - all from my saved documents.
My games have been dissected to a point where it's a smorgasbord of 'parts is parts' crap. Ugh.....
Needless to say I have spent days trying to delete these annoying images, over 10,000, and ran into a slight problem with some of them.
Evidently, per this fellow at Best Buy, the backup copied everything including 'licensed' images, even tho they are useless, thanks to me taking for
granted the settings were okay.
[ Normally it's selected pictures/music/documents. But not this time....]
When I try to delete them, I get "permission denied" -----Try again/Cancel
He suggested trying to Safe Mode......didn't work.
He also suggested right clicking and see if they are 'archived'...well, it won't allow any changes to the properties.
So my question is this..........
Has any one got any idea on how to bypass the 'permission' thing?
I've got the 'User Account Control' off....
And I haven't got a password set.
Oh yeah, it won't let me 'drag' them to another folder either.
I was kinda hoping that there would be some one here that might know of something.
Here is a picture of a few of the images that I can't delete:
Once again, I turn here for help because this place gives me the best advice....
Thanks in advance.....
ETA: Vista / Windows Photo Gallery
The guy at Best Buy said the same thing you guys told me before......ghost imaging [Norton]
But before I do that I must clean out all the junk.
Man oh man this sucks......learn from ones' errors the hard way.
Lesson learned......never to be forgotten.
