i havent been able to do anything with it , ived tryed pretty much everything in the link you provided.
i used this process :
How to Password Protect a Folder on the Mac:
- Open up the “Disk Utility” application
- File -> New -> Disk Image from Folder…
- choose a folder to protect
- choose “AES-128″ encryption and press Save
- Enter your desired new password twice (Do not forget it.)
with the detail that in the image format instead of "read-write" i chose "compressed" ... and there was the beggining of the issue ,
i want to undue that or erase the file that some how i cant ' move, drag to trash, delete in disc utility ,or do anything to it at all eccept view the files ' so .....

If all else fails you could enable the root user (see Mac help) and trash it as root.
The root user has special permissions and can do almost anything. Be very careful. Log in with username root. Do the minimum to resolve the issue and log out.

i logged as root , but i cnt seem to find " the original" file to delete it , or im not doing something right.
what i did was while logged as root search the file but it provided a copy.
if can how do i delete the whole file using root?.

You are very welcome.
You may find logging in as root an easy way to resolve a few things in future but be very careful as there is nothing to stop you trashing all your data and/or OS in a few key strokes.
