Have you tried to find and delete the files from DOS (assumes Windows), or creating a new "Folder", "Directory in DOS", moving or copying the existing files, removing the old Folder, recreating it, then moving the files back? Have you run Scandisk from DOS? If neither one worked, search the Registry, then INI files.

Have you tried to delete these files in windows explorer? Also you should be able to use the Find feature in windows and right click on the found file and delete them right there.

the files are most probably hidden/system files.
if i knew the names i could help better.
also some cdr progs generate files ie.
.log or .txt files.

are the files physically on your hard disk or just on the cd when burned?

Thumbs down

If they are system files - it is best to leave well alone. If they are not affecting your performance, do not disturb them. If they are from a program and it causes data problems, then it sounds like you have some corrupt files or data - Would need to know more to help ya.
