Hello Newsgroup,

I have a File cluster with Server 2003 (Shared Storage is SCSI), AD is also
2003.
If i want to delete a Folder the following error message appears:
Cannot delete file: Cannot read from the source file or disk

What can I do??

Cannot delete file: Cannot read from the source file or disk
Is the drive formated with NTFS or FAT-32?

Is the file on a quorum drive or a stand alone drive?

Have you run a chkdsk on the drive?

Hello,

the Drive is formatted with ntfs and is shared between the 2 cluster nodes.
chkdsk doesn´t find any problems.

You must run chkdsk /r.

Do a drive scan for errors. I had this too and it turned out that there
were some filesystem errors which got corrected when I did a scan. This
also appears as files which appear in folders when you do a search but don't
when you navigate to that specific folder in Explorer.

Ive had this twice on my SAN.

I faced the same problem, I studied it for a long time and how to use
all these commands, and then I simply bought Long Path Tool at the address LongPathTool DOT com and
cleaned all unnecessary files.
