Say I've a user that copied a checked in version folder tree using ClearCase Explorer to create a view-private folder tree. Now he wants to delete it and is not allowed to delete it.
All the files and folders in the copy are owned by Nobody (S-1-1-0) and have the read-only bit set. The files could be deleted by manually going into the properties of each file and removing the read-only bit. Then the files could be deleted.
The folders are another matter. They, so far, cannot be deleted. Both as the user and as the VOB owner we've gone into the folder properties and removed the check in the read-only box and closed the properties. Reopening the properties has the read-9only check restored.
I've gone to the command prompt and used the attrib command as "attrib -r /d folder" or "attrib -r /d /s folder" or "attrib -r -a -s -h -I /d /s folder". In all cases I get "Access Denied - folder.
I've told the user that removing the view will get rid of the folders. He insists that is not possible due to other content in the view. I've suggested that they get the "other" work done and then delete the view.
So while I convince the user to just remove the view, does anyone know how to successfully delete the folder?
