I started off programming in BBC Basic and 6502 assembler. I got my first job programming in FORTRAN on VMS, and since then have picked up C, C++ and SQL on VMS and Unix, with excursions into VB and IBM 360 assembler.

I drink real ale, play wargames, and walk in the country.

And, yes, I have a beard.

comment Deleting files appears to work, but doesn't
I tried your suggestion of moving the files, which produced an "access is denied" message, which seems like a clue. Thanks anyway.

comment How do I run more than one Windows Explorer?
@barlop, I tried setting "open each folder in a new window", and it didn't make any difference.
