Currently Being ModeratedJan 29, 2010 7:45 AM (in response to V.K.)Not sure what I did, but after plugging and unplugging my LaCie Rugged external hard drive from different computers (while still spinning, I know, egads!) I was finally able to delete the pesky folder, which incidentally had nothing of value within it.
Although not the best mainstream method of solving the problem, it worked. This time.
Thanks for your help! RichMac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
