Can't delete folders on WinCE 5.0

Post by *masster » 2013-10-10, 14:45 UTC

hi
I'm using TC on a GPS device running WinCE 5.0. All goes well till I need to delete folders. All files inside that folder are deleted, but not the folder itself or any subfolder. This happens both on my microSDHC card and on GPS Flash disk :shock:

Any suggestions?

Strange, maybe the folder is locked in some other program? Can you try again after restarting the device, please?

After restarting the device, the folder which previously could not be deleted, now it can. But if I delete another folder it's back to square 1.

Could it be because TC 2.51 can't handle 8GB FAT32 partitions? You didn't say in features section what type of partition formats it can handle.

No, that shouldn't matter - I guess that it has something to do with open files (e.g. from other program) or current directory. Can you try to close TC via its menu and re-open it? Do not use the 'x' button, this just hides the program.
