Syncback should only stop for one of two reasons: 1) the location that you're supposed to be backing up to isn't valid 2) the files you're trying to back up are in use.
The menu system admittedly isn't very intuitive, but there's a "slient" mode where it ignores all errors and just does everything it can. As long as you aren't trying to back up your Outlook PST with Outlook open it'll run fine.
Still, I'm far less concerned that people use syncback and far more concerned that they back up! If synctoy works for you, fantastic!
When you try to delete from command prompt are you using the full (long) file name or the short (-x) filename with the ~?
Also, have you tried booting in normal mode, opening a command prompt, then opening task manager and killing explorer.exe? Then you can perform the delete command in the CP and restart explorer from task manager.
Is there anything in the MS world that will use command prompt like a linux shell and force delete a file? i.e. [SIZE=-1]rm -rf[/SIZE][SIZE=-1] directoryname[/SIZE]
Try RMDIR /S your_directory_name from the command prompt while in the parent directory.
Same thing as my previous post.
As a note. I can move the folder anywhere I want. It's only when I go to edit the contents that it get's all dumb on me.
Any other ideas?
Tried. didn't work.
I'm not heavy on DOS syntax. But the "=" sign is some sort of command that won't let me use that character.
right, but the short name shouldn't include that character.DIR /X

Don't see a short name in there.
That's really weird. The giant void of black space in your picture should have shortened names. I can't help but wonder if the '.' in the filenames is messing it up because it thinks everything after that is part of the file extention. (Don't get me started on programmers who write filenames with spaces and symbols in them!)
I'd skip straight to using one of the programs.
How about booting up an Ubuntu CD-ROM and try removing it through a linux command prompt? I believe it can read/write NTFS now...
I've also used the System Rescue CD.
