I recently "upgraded" the drive in my laptop to a Crucial M4 SSD drive. I can't be sure the SSD drive is to blame but ever since the upgrade I am having trouble with both Visual Studio and Eclipse not being able to delete .exe files on my drive that the development tools create. Everything else in the build works, it can delete and recreate new .o files but when it gets to a project's .exe file it reports that it doesn't have permission to delete the file. If I go to the directory and right-click on the file I get the same error. The right-click delete option has the UAC shield icon on it as well. Under the UAC control panel I have it set to Never.
Typically after several minutes the file can be deleted either from Explorer or the dev environment. If I go to do the delete from Window's Explorer I can see that the UAC shield icon is no longer next to the file. Does anyone know what is causing this and how I can stop Explorer from locking my .exe. files for minutes between compilations?
I tried right-clicking the folder and explicitly setting my permissions for my user to all privileges but it doesn't help.
