File Deletion Problem


Recommended Posts

I use the Delete File command to clear out my browser cache using the format


'Delete Files - C:\Path\Cache\*.*'


This has worked perfectly under Windows ME and XP but following a recent upgrade to Macro Express 3.5e I keep getting 2 Error messages saying,


'Cannot Delete.: It is being used by another person or program. Close any program that may be using the file and try again.'




'Cannot Delete..: Access Denied. Make sure the disk is not full or write protected and that the file is not currently in use.'


The files are, nevertheless, deleted. Any idea what's going on?

'Cannot Delete..: Access Denied.

Hi, I posted a similar wish to Insight Software, some month ago.


In ME 3.4b the software simply ignored "Access Denied" continuing with the next file, so files that could be deleted was deleted.


From ME 3.5 that was unfortunately changed, so today I let ME call a *.bat file instead for doing deletion jobs.


Another thing that I miss in ME'd delete function is the capability or option to bypass recycle bin, like with "shift-delete" in explorer, which would speed up the process a lot


Best regards
