Cannot delete file from flash drive



  • 1. separator line length in footnote?
    Where in Word program, I am able to change Separator line Length that appears between Footnotes and main text.
  • 2. Night of the Living auto font changes!
    Same problem I've seen other questions on: at some points in my doc, Word will automatically switch to another typeface and font when I hit enter - Arial 10 reg to Times 12 bold for example. If I backspace it changes the *previous* line to something else again, like Arial 12 bold italic!! Yeesh! The remedy I've seen suggested here is to go to Autoformat/Autocorrect "AutoFormat as you type" and switch off the "Apply as you type" and "Automatically as you type" stuff. I've switched off *everything* in these boxes, plus some other stuff in "Replace as you type" (i.e. bold and ital with real formatting), yet the problem persists. Sounds trivial, but I can't work with a doc where the font is different every other line, with weird bolding and italics etc. Please - any other ideas anyone??? I have to stop these things!
  • 3. section page numbers in heading and total page number in footing
    In a document with different sections I want to add the number of section pages in the header and the total number of pages of the document in the footing. This seems to give a conflict. As soon as I add in the footer the total number of pages of the document, the pagenumber of the section in the header also changes to the total number of pages of the document.
  • 4. How do I insert automatically superscripted footnotes?
    For some reason my footnotes are appearing as ordinary numbers in the text rather than as superscripts. This means I have to go back and format each one separately by hand as a superscript! There must be a way to change the formatting but I haven't found anything that explains how....thanks
  • 5. Does Ctrl button allow to select multiple paragraphs within a docu
    I have a user that swears that she uses the Ctrl key + Mouse click to select various paragraphs within a document so she can copy and paste selected text into a different document. When I attempt to Ctrl+Mouse Click on various paragraphs, it selects the whole document. Can anybody else tell me different?

Cannot delete file from flash drive

Postby TGFtYiBjaG9w » Sat, 01 Oct 2005 02:25:02 GMT

Some music files have copied onto my removable flash drive (I don't know how) 
and are taking up all the space. When I try to delete the files I get an 
error message reading: Cannot delete file: cannot read from the source file 
or disk.
I can't drag them anywhere either, so I can't get rid of them that way. 
They aren't all from cd or downloaded from the internet, there seems to be 
no obvious common denominator. 
Any help gratefully received.

1.Error when deleting temp files: Cannot delete file: cannot read from the source

From what I've been reading, Office creates temp files to 
your hard drive for the documents you open in office. 
Once, you close the file, the temp file should be 
deleted, however, mine are not.

I size of the temp directory that has been holding 
these "temp" files has grown to 112MB. When I try to 
delete the files I receive the following error, Cannot 
delete file: cannot read from the source file or disk.

Any thoughts on how to get rid of these files?
Any advice is appreciated.

4.Modification dates change when moving/copying between hard-drive and flash drive

I posted this on the general office newsgroup, but it seems to be a dead
group the last few days.  So hopefully someone here can give me some

I believe that this is actually an Apple question, but I'm sure that there's
an Office user that might know the answer to it also.  I use a flash drive
to store most of my work-related documents on.  That way, I have them when
I'm at school (on a Windows XP computer) and at home on my Mac OS 10.3.9.  I
try to occasionally back-up my flash drive by dragging it's contents to my
Mac.  Copying in this direction USUALLY retains the appropriate modification

However, if I move things from the Mac to the USB drive (I occasionally make
changes to a file on the Mac when my flashdrive isn't handy), the
modification date changes to the copy/move date.  Is there a way around
this?  It alters the information about the file and sometimes makes a
version look newer than another version of a document.  When in reality,
it older--it just been moved/copied and the date changed.

I often move things back and forth for backup purposes, but if it keeps
changing the dates on it own, it impossible to tell which is REALLY the
most current copy/version.

Many thanks in advance,
