    Norton Recycler Files

    Norton has been eating my disk space in a massive way. I found that the files were in a norton recyle folder. I cant seem to delete some of them though as I get the error message that either the file is in use or it cant locate the file.

    How do I get rid of these?

    Right click on your Recycling bin an click "Empty Norton Protected Files". that should work. It's a killerl alright. It was a great feeling for me discovering that i free'd up around 20Gb!!!

    Try running chkdsk or booting up in a second OS and deleting them that way. Or maybe boot up in safe mode.
