    Missing delete option


    Cannot delete files in any pendrive or flash drive.
    Desktop file can delete.
    When i try to right click the file or folder in the flash drive or pendrive it does' have option to delete.
    I have tried other pc with same pendrive or flash drive and have no problem.

    How large is the usb?

    one idea is to copy the whole damn stick to another usb or your computer and then format the crap out of the USB drive (by doing a low level format) and then recopy the things back from your computer to the newly formatted usb..

    but BEWARE, you may have Malware on those files so... run the scans on them like crazy before you start doing anything with them.. and your computer..


    some people swear by all the gods to this program.. I've never used it and never had to..

    but here

    "This could happen because you'd not have the permission to the "Trash" folder for that particular partition. Every partition has a hidden folder by the name .trash-### (where the hashes denote some number). Perhaps you don't have the permission for that folder. Try changing permissions of that folder."
