Hello

Eh...A sort of novice in these things.

I cannot delete any files from my new portable Maxton drive (200GB) There must be a way....No instructions come with the product either..

Do I need to reconfigure my laptop or pc. I use both. Both run on XP

I would be very grateful for advice

What happens when you try to delete them?

Im not a portable HDD user but you could give File Assasin a bash and see if that helps.

Hi

I tested my portable drive again.

It seems like that I can only delete files when I run it on personal laptop.

As I am research student, I have to store my files on different locations. Just in case. One is university network drive. As soon as I plug it in, work on it for a while and then try to save or delete file on that network drive, I keep getting message ''access denied, cannot delete file' That is all. So the only thing I can do is every time when I need to save the copy I have to save the file under new name. in this way i get duplicated files.Then when I get home, I have to use my personal laptop to copy files and delete duplicated files..

I tried to look into propety of my portable drive. I cannot disable feature 'read only' either

pathetic!

hi, you may try DuplicateFilesDeleter to remove your duplicate files, it works very well and remove duplicate files quickly.
