It’s been a while since the last post but I’m still here. Callister is having some problem with her laptop and sent it for repair, luckily it’s still under warranty so no money going out there (hopefully). At the mean time, I did some major overhaul on the theme for Callister, you can check it out and comment on how you like the theme and ease of navigation. Still needs some minor tweaking but basically, everything is almost there.
I also put up a new blog just for email forwards that I would love to share with you guys. Maybe we can have laughs once in a while. Check it out at www.berceloteh.com and I got a forum up and running too but I haven’t had the time to manage it yet. Currently I’m busy dealing with Sembang Komputer’s forum but you can check the forum here at forum.berceloteh.com.
Back to the main post, I know a lot of the guys out there use Windows, probably Windows XP and some have upgrade to Windows Vista. I never use Vista because I don’t really like the idea of having Vista in the first place.
Anyway, let’s cut the crap and I know you guys have some problems with Windows once in a while, and it’s impossible to list down all of the common errors in this entry. Well, at least let me share something that is quite annoying that happened from time to time on my Windows XP laptop.
Sometimes when you cut and paste some folders, you will get an error in the end like this one:
I know it’s frustrating to have this kind of errors. Let’s say we move a folder named Folder X from location A to location B. The progress bar is ticking slowly and finally all the files in Folder X has been transferred to
location B but you got this message in the end. Although you check the folder X in location A, the folder is empty but you still can’t delete it with the same error.
What you can do is download the Unlocker program here. Install the program and it should automatically add the program shortcut in the Windows explorer. The next time you encounter this kind of problem, just simply right click on the folder and select Unlocker as the picture below.
And it should prompt another box that should look like this:
Please click the picture if you want to have a closer look. At the bottom left, you should see a list of actions that you can select. In this case, I selected “delete” and I just click “Unlock All”. Unlocker will remove any Windows program associated with the folder and delete it for you. You should received a notification that shows the operation is successful such as this:
And that’s it, you’re annoying Windows error is gone. In case you’re wondering if Unlocker can be used for other types of errors, here’s a list of errors you might encounter.
- Cannot delete file: Access is denied
- There has been a sharing violation.
- The source or destination file may be in use.
- The file is in use by another program or user.
- Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.
I’ve done my fair share of the petition, so why wait? Maybe this could here our next generation? Why bother about world health if our children and our descendants can’t live in the healthy world healthily ??
