    Is it possible that the device is no longer mounted?

    I do. Some of the files came from an external HD if that matters. When I did the install I had the external HD unplugged.....wonder if that made a difference?

    Indy452; Hi !
    From your screen shot I conclude that the files to be deleted reside of an external medium, and like codemaniac, I also ask if that device is mounted. One can not delete something that is not there.
