On my flash drive, I finally got it to allow me to write to it!! :)
But now I don't know how to delete folder on the flash drive :(

On my desktop, I can delete them no problem!

But on the flash drive, I click "Move this file to trash" on a folder, and it says that "Creating folder is not supported with protocol trash".


I htink if I could get Knoppix to directly delete the folder with out sending it to the trash folder, that it would work just fine.
But I don't know how to do that :(



So what can I do to fix it?




I'm using Knoppix 4 HDD install with the KDE desktop.

Just right click on the folder and say "Delete" I've never had any problem doing that in Knoppix in the past.

I tried that. it still says that the protocal isn't supported :(


I click on this in the right click menu:

And this is the error I get:

Btw, this is when trying to delete off of my flash drive.
IT will let me delete folders off my desktop with no problem!
If I want to delete a folder, I have to move the folder and all it's contents from the flash drive, to my desktop, and then I can delete it from there no problem.
But since my computer isn't so fast, this could take a while... :(

Simple question but it has to be asked, is the pen drive locked?

No, I can delete files, but not folders...
If I want to delete a folder, I have to move it to my destop, and delete it from there... :(
