How to delete an undeletable file

Can’t delete a file? You may be in luck.

Today, I figured out a way to delete these files with a bit of backdoor work. Basically, you have to trick the file to think that you are the owner. Here’s how:

The Re-Emergence of the Convertible Tablet PC

Well, now. That’s a difference. You’re looking at my current laptop on the left and one of them many convertible tablet PCs soon to be flooding the market. Before the emergence of windows 8, the Tablet PC had been in heavy decline. I swear to you, the only reason I got my first tablet was because it was so much cheaper than the other same-hardware laptops on eBay at the time. I really don’t know why they were so ostracized from the tech industry. Call me crazy, but I really like these devices! Old and new!

Sure, the old ones need a pen to use the touch screen, but you don’t have to guess where you’re about to tap. The pen has a special magnet to determine distance so you have a full pointer.

Anyway, and I guess this is my point, Windows 8 may have just saved the future of the laptop completely. Everyone wants a tablet these days. Now, you can have best of both worlds. Smart move Microsoft. Well played.

My post on tablet convertibles from the past is right here if you’re interested in my journey to find the perfect tablet:
