Windows 7 - Unable to delete folder (0x800710FE

Asked By JP on 09-Jul-07 03:10 PM
Hi,

I'm trying to delete a folder that I "cut and pasted" from a my docs folder
(redirected) to another location.

I proceeded to get a sync error and when I try to delete this folder I get
Error 0x800710FE: This file is currently not available for use on this
computer.

The file is causing problems with another application. I need to delete it
but can't

Is their anyway to rebuild my cache or do something to remove this folder?

The problem is, the folder is permanently offline, and even when I go into
safe-mode, windows still thinks it's offline, and won't let me modify it.

Since it's offline, I also can't modify the permissions of it.

No. Since I can't get to the security tab of the folder, which is required to
take ownership, I am unable to.

In safe more, normal boot mode, or any other state.

Hi JP,

You might try doing a search in regedit using "Find" and "Find Next"
with the folder's name under the "Edit" menu.  Delete all entries that
are related to that particular folder.  Then try to delete the folder.
Make sure you do a backup of the registry before you do this.  Just in
case you delete something you should not have.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hi JP,

Based on my research and experiences, it seems something wrong with the CSC
cache so we can add the following registry subkey to reinitialize the CSC
cache:

1. Click Start and enter regedit in the start search to open Registry
Editor.
2. Expand to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\NetCache
3. Add a new key:
Key Name: FormatDatabase
Key Type: DWORD
Key Value: 1
Note The actual value of the registry key is ignored. This registry change
requires a restart. When the computer is restarting, the shell will
reinitialize the CSC cache and then delete the registry key if the registry
entry exists.

4. Restart the computer then the CSC cache is rebuilt. Test the same issue
again.

I will test this issue on my side and if there is any update, I will let
you know as soon as possible.

Helen Li

It seems you never got your answer from the originator. I am having the same
problem. I was unable to get your proposed solution to work. I am also
surprised that searching all posts there is no more conversation about this
error. For what it's worth, I'm running Vista 32. The whole Video folder is
tied to Sync that only creates errors.

Hello Customer,

I am sorry to hear that the suggestion I provided cannot resolve the issue
on your side.

The problem JP described is that there is a 0x800710FE error when deleting
a file in CSC cache then he receives a sync error. For we are not sure if
the sync error you received is same as his or not, you may submit a new
post and there will be a Windows Vista support engineer to help on the
specific issue of your side.

After unistalling some software I proceed to make sure the folder and files are actually gone. In many cases they are not, when I go to del them I get the message I don't have permission. After reading pages and pages of things to try to no avail I decided to pull out my magic disk. What you need is a bootable CD with a virtual OS that can read NTFS drives. I believe linux has one also. I used my old ERD commander 2005 disk. Booted up and opened explorer and blasted the files and folders into never never land. Took 5min.

Helen,



Had this problem on my 64-bit Windows 7 machine, and rather than just go about my merry way, figured I'd take 2 minutes to thank you for the fix. It worked beautifully.



Odd symptom before I ran your registry fix: going to the IP address of the UNC in question worked fine, just kind of a bad precedent to set. ;)



Thank you and take care,



Dean
