When I look at the contents of a CD in Windows Explorer, I see the contents of the CD listed first, then below that the message "Files ready to be written to the disk." Currently, "Desktop.ini" is the only file listed in the latter group, though I have no idea how or why it got there. I know I've come across a simple answer to getting rid of such files, but at the moment I can't recall it. I'm not sure if I should simply delete the file from that screen, or whether the solution requires other steps, but I don't want to delete a file from that screen and find that I've accidentally deleted it from its original location as well, so I thought I'd better check with the wiser heads here on the Lounge.
If someone can refresh my so-called "memory," I'd be most grateful. Also, if there's a way to avoid causing such unwanted files to hang around "ready to be written to the disk," I'd appreciate knowing how to keep this from happening in the first place.
