How do I delete these directories created by Roxio?


aprasad

Question

Roxio applications create directories for use as temporary locations etc.

 

For example, Disc Copier created a directory DC95D on my E drive (in E:\ATI MMC\DC95D .. I had told the applications to store temp tiles in E:\ATI MMC). I have since then, changed the location of the temp directory to a different drive (I:\Temp).

 

However, E:\ATI MMC\DC95D and E:\ATI MMC\My Movies (also created by Roxio) are impossible to delete. They are always "in use" and XP Explorer denies permission to even access the contents of these directories. I tried using a command prompt (Dos box) but the operation still failed.

 

How do I delete these extraneous directories created by Roxio applications?

Rebooting (normal mode) doesn't help .. the directories are still "in use" (I haven't tried booting in Safe mode).

 

I'll try the Unlocker. Thanks for the suggestion.

You should check your computer for viruses and also check your computer for malware/spyware. They are 2/3 different things. You virus protection software does not stop malware/spyware.

 

What you describe is an ATI problem, which I have never seen posted before. What ATI card and software do you have running?

I use ATI All In Wonder 9800 Pro and HDTVWonder.

 

Unlocker worked for me. It is a great program, IMO.

 

As for security, I do my best: AVG, Emsisoft A Squared, A Squared anti Dialer, Windows Defender.

Unlocker would have told him what was locking the folders or files.

It was very strange.

 

Windows Explorer would give access denied error when I tried to even see the contents of the directories. I could not delete the directories as I could not select them.

 

Unlocker said that there were no applications locking that directory. However, I could select Delete from Unlocker and that did delete the directories.

 

I think that ATI MMC does some strange things to the directories it monitors.

 

I have selected a different directory to store my videos and as temporary directories in EMC9. Everything is fine now.

I am glad you got it squared away. Roxio didn't create those files. Either you or ATI would have had to tell where to capture the files, and when I capture, I have never had a folder created that I couldn't delete.

 

Very strange that you do. I would contact ATI to see if they know why that happens.

Reboot and delete them.
