Hi, thanks for the thoughts. I've tried kleansweep, and creating other files with the same name and moving them. Tried renaming them, moving them. Nothing worked. Also, the drive the files were being copied FROM was shut off, the problem is removing the "leftover" files (for lack of a better term) on the drive that WASN'T shut off. So I don't think it's a filesystem problem, but I'll try that too, as it shouldn't hurt anything. I also couldn't re-copy the same files over to the same dir, but if I first changed the name of the file, THEN it copies just fine, so I think both filesystems are fine, but I'll run some repair and diagnostics on both drives, just in case. Thanks much, any new ideas are appreciated.
P.S. While checking out file system repair utilities, it occurred to me that I've left out some crucial info. The files in question are on a ntfs partition I share with windows on a dual boot box. The rest of windows isn't on that partition, it's just for media and backups. I haven't booted to windows in months, so maybe I can fix it on the dark side....unless anyone here has any other ideas.
