Default Cannot Format A Drive In Dos


I got an empty game folder in d drive that cannot be deleted, so I try to format the drive and cannot because it said the drive is associate with bla bla bla..

So i try to format it with DOS , then a mssg said that "Format cannot run because the volume is used by another process, format may run if this volume is dismount first . "

So I try to dismount it and format it again , same mssg still pop out ..

have you made a virtual drive and associated that folder with that? try going into Safe Mode and see if it can delete it from there. you must have made partition and associated that game folder with that.
