Cannot delete the file

    Question

  •  

     

    Hi,

    I did map x: drive below to one Sharepoint place

    For instance, if I delete the below selected file, I can see the file disappear after the delete.

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/40211031/t57.jpg

    However, when I close the file explorer above and then come back to the same place,

    X:\Email place\Forms

    I can still see the same deleted file there. Why?

    Many Thanks & Best Regards, Hua Min

  • I believe you cannot delete a "forms" folder .This is because the "forms" folder at the root of all document libraries contains aspx pages (dispform, editform and new form etc) for the document library. It is not recommended to store the files inside forms folder. Try to store the document outsite the folder and delete it in the explorer view.

    There is only one last doubt, which is: we are only able to remove the file there using Sharepoint interface and we are not able to remove the file of Sharepoint using File explorer. Am I right?
