    (sucking eggs kind of answers)

    Tried it from CMD prompt?
    Removed all shares / permissions?

    Yeah sadly! It says the folder doesn't exist when you try and delete it, however the thing certainly does exist and I can copy file back and forth from it!

    Thanks for that, sadly it kept saying I hadn't selected the folder, being a twit and it being early I forgot about deleting it via it's short name "~1" et cetera. Done now thanks everyone!
