    Cannot Delete Briefcase

    I am trying to rename or delete a briefcase I created. When trying to delete it from within Windows Explorer I get a message indicating I have to close briefcase, but briefcase is not opened. How do I get around this?

    I have also gone into properties and tried to uncheck the "read only" feature, but it never stays unchecked.

    I have had this problem when the briefcase is selected or expanded in the left hand pane of an explorer window. Try selecting the folder that holds the briefcase in the left hand pane, make sure that the briefcase itself isn't visible in the left hand pane and then right click the briefcase in the right hand pane and select delete.
