I have 110MB (or so they seem) worth of files (2893 files) in my W2k SP4
laptop's c:\recycler\nprotect folder that can't be accessed or deleted.
Norton Protect is long uninstalled, but operating on the files gives
(example):

C:\RECYCLER\NPROTECT\00041753.
The system cannot find the file specified.

The disk shows as healthy in Disk Manager, and scandisk or
what's-its-name runs successfully.  Go figure.  Ils sont fous ces
Redmontains! (index finger running wild circles)
