Windows 7: Deleting stubborn folder

31 Dec 2009   #11

Windows 7 Enterprise (x64); Windows Server 2008 R2 (x64)

Ouch on the RAID. I have never had a problem with Ubuntu and RAID. I have used version 08 thru 09 and have never had a problem. Even on servers.

If you have not started rebuilding it there are a few things you can do to try a recovery.

Is it a hardware or software RAID and what version?? RAID 1, RAID 5 etc. ??

Now this is creepy, I configured the HDD's again in the RAID utility (hardware). Windows asked my to format one drive. Canceled as I wanted to try something else. But didn't work.
Anyway just noticed the drives have come back together and show the existing files. Tried deleting the folder I was having trouble with, and had no problems.... weird!

Thanks for your help guys, even if it wasn't the way we intended it to work.
