removal of N360_BACKUP folder
When I "upgraded" from Norton 360 to Norton Deluxe, I found that it no longer supports WinXP and no longer has a backup function. I wish I had known this before I made the upgrade. In any case, I'm trying to remove Norton altogether from a WinXP computer. The N360_BACKUP folder is on an external drive, and when I removed Norton from the computer, this folder did not get removed. With Norton uninstalled, I cannot use Norton itself to remove the folder. I would like to free up the space used by this folder, but it's refusing to be deleted. How can I remove this folder from the drive? (Yes, I'm using an Administrator account.)
To answer the question you may ask me, that is, why I'm still using a WinXP computer. I'm still using it because it has a custom legacy app running legacy laboratory equipment. It's a one-purpose machine, but a vital one. It would cost me thousands of dollars to replace it, the software, and the equipment, so it's well worth it to me to keep this setup functioning. I use the external drive for backup, and I would like to free up the space used by the N360_BACKUP folder.
