External Hard drive

I have an external hard drive that has an 60 gb file that is a norton back up. I right click on it and click delete and of course it's to big for the recyle bin so it asked if I want to delete it permenately and I click OK but it won't delte. Am I doing something wrong?

No, try going back to it later and deleting it. Give Windows some time to evaluate it and let you delete it.

I got it done. I increased the size of my recycle bin so it was big enough to handle it. Then I tried to delete it and said I wasn't the administrator but I am and it wouldn't let me do it. So I did a restart and tried again and it went to the recycle bin and I emptied the bin OK and then reset my recycle back to where it was. Long way around but the end is what counts. Thank You for your response.
