    I had given my External Hard disk to a friend of mine.
    When he returned I find a folder named "3ce2a1da3892c7dd31f6c520a2" on opening the folder there were several files and a few folders. None of the file or the folder were deletable but I deleted all the files using FILEASSASIN. But unfortunately I am unable to delete the folders named "locbin" and "update". the size of the above two folders is 0 byte. I can;t even open the two folders as I am denied permission to see them. Further, when I try to delete them it says that ill need to provide administraor permission to delete them although I am logged in as administrator I cannot delete them. Even FILEASSASIN can't.

    Please tell me how to delet the two subfolders and the main folder "3ce2a1da3892c7dd31f6c520a2" too.

    For stuff like that, I use Unlocker application. Works like a charm for everything I've used it for every time without fail (and I reinstall and move stuff that gets locked by Windows a lot after a new installation and stuff) :)
