When i try to acces one of my directories Message appears that acces is denided, but it should not it's just common directory with files but the details shows that ther is no file inside so size is 0. But as i remember there was something.

With that info only I guess not much can be done to help...
My guess (I'm no expert :( ) is the directory is corrupt, either because of a physical error, or simply it was broken after a hard reboot (maybe it wasn't flushed properly from the disk cache). You can try running Scandisk, it usually helps, but the data is probably lost. In the best case you may recover it as lost chains.

You cannot delete the directory while you are viewing its contents. Doesn't matter if there are no files, the directory is open and being accessed.

You must close the directory before deleting it.

...and be sure that no processes have their current working directory set to the directory you want to delete.

well i know the stuf you mentioned but the problem is somewhere else.
(i can't delete/read from windows i can read/delete from linux)

i think:
I created directory in linux by specified user. So owner is this user.
I cant delete from windows becouse it's different user, even if this user is an admin :sweat:

So owner is this user.

FAT32 has no user/group stuff. If anything, it might be a corrupt filesystem, and it could be caused by linux buggyness :grin:. Which directory are you talking about, btw?

Hm, make sure that the directory name doesnt equal a device name, NUL i..e Such directories cannot be accessed (at least with win9x/dos)
