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.
