Cannot delete folder : Access is denied

  1. i used partition magic to merge 2 partitions and a folder has been created. i cannot delete the folder but i can access it. i have read this thread and followed the instruction but still can't make it. might be something wrong at somewhere.

    the error that i got is

    Cannot delete System Volume Information: Access is denied.

    Make sure the disk is not full or write protected and that the file is nor currently in use.

    FYI, i am logging as an administrator since i am the only user of this computer. the folder name is 'merge'.

    Properties of this folder:

    Administrator : full control
    Everyone : read

    at the Advance Secutiry Setting for merge
    Administrator has full control while Everyone only has several Read options that has been ticked.
