Had this problem for a long time now, I've worked around it but now I NEED to free up some space. Lets say when I delete something to recycle bin it will go there. But when I try to delete it from the recycle bin it disappears but when I re-open the recycle bin it's there again. It's also effecting my flash drives. It wont let me copy files to them and it gives me the error "could not copy "file" the request could not be performed because of an input/output device error" And when I try to delete files from my flash disks it says "Cannot delete "file" access is denied make sure it is not full or write protected or is currently in use". I made sure to close down any programs that could be using the file etc. Any help greatly appreciated. Thank you.
