I say Folder not files.

They say is the registry. I try nearly all the registry edit there is to fix it. No luck.

This is caused in the registry. The file or folder is not locked.

I think I have mentioned in this forum before about the "new" Vista feature called NTFS reparse points.

There are three types of reparse points:
1. Symbolic links - can be thought of as a shortcut to a file or folder elsewhere in the file system (don't confuse it with Windows shortcut .LNK)
2. Junction points - can only point to a folder (usually on a local folder) The "junction" folder's name can be different from the actual folder.
3. Mount points - is a folder on a disk that points to an entire disk volume

An obvious example in Vista is "C:\Users". Usually all user profiles are stored in "C:\Users", like your profile's "My Documents", "My Music", "My Pictures", etc. This folder is not really a real folder; it is a a junction point to "C:\Document and Settings\" folder. Junction point is a feature of Windows NTFS filesystem and it does not exist in Windows FAT filesystem . Historically, NTFS reparse points follows the same Linux/Unix filesystem design. It is used to redirect a "reparsed" folder to a real folder.

To observe this, try the command prompt from volume C:
CODE

cd c:\
dir /A

You will see <JUNCTION> for "C:\Users" entry with information about its actual absolute folder path.
For symbolic link, you will see <SYMLINKD>

But, this shell information about junction points may be corrupted when using Windows Explorer. Especially true for those folders with junction point type. When you rename/delete an actual folder where a junction points to in "My Documents" in your user profile under "C:\Document and Settings\" instead of from "C:\Users", the junction information that points to the actual folder will be lost from "My Documents" of your profile under "C:\Users" although the "junction" folder is still there. When you want to rename/delete this "junction" folder, you can't do that. Junction usually store an "absolute" path to the actual folder, not a "relative" path.

You will not have this problem for symlink points as they store "relative" paths to the actual folders they point to. Deleting a "soft" symlink in "My Documents" will not destroy the actual folder its point to. If you use "hard" symlink, deleting a hard "symlink" will delete the actual folder it points to.

Running "chkdsk /f" in Windows Vista and Windows 7 will try to correct the reparse points (during Stage 3)

You can use "Junction Link Magic" to resolve a corrupted "junction" folder (please use with caution! Make sure you know what you are doing)
