I have a Dell Dimension 8300, WinXP Pro SP1, 2.6 Ghz P4, HyperThreading Enabled; 80 Gb HD, DMA enabled, formatted NTFS; 512 Mb RAM. All files are effected, regardless of file type, permissions, etc.
This only occurs on this particular machine, and only with v5.7, < v5.7 works fine.
As I mentioned if I invoke Eraser on a single file anywhere (ie: Explorer, either in standard view or explorer view), it complains that the file is in use, and cannot be erased. (This is not true if the file in question resides in the Desktop folder, and is accessed via the actual desktop interface.)
If I create a new file of any type, then multi-select both the file in question and the newley created file, then select erase via the context menu, both files erase without problem.
Not a big issue, but it has me baffled.
Ok, but first could you give us some idea of what your working with? OS , Memory, HD space.. , what type of files is this problem effecting? temp / tmp / graphics / other ?
