.VOB won't delete

Posted: 10-17-2008, 06:13 AM

I have about 8GB's of .vob files on my computer that I can't seem t
delete. When I try to send them to the trash I get a popup saying
need to authorize it, so I click authorize only for the popup to com
up again and again and again....Basically it tells me over and over tha
I need permission in order to delete them

I'm the administrator and only user on my computer, why is it tellin
my I don't have the authority/permission to get rid of 9GB's of crap o
my computer?

Check the owner(s) of the files. An easy way to take ownership of the files
is through using either the ICACLS or TAKEOWN tools.

icacls c:\scripts /setowner johndoe
takeown /f c:\scripts
