<<<Again my permissions on sources are set accordingly giving express permissions to xbmc to allow read/write. < this is important no matter where your sources are located.
In "Properties" "full access" is displayed.
<<<Not sure what you mean by "all programs".
Every program I use / have on my system can fully access files, the ones having a delete option, renaming option can do it.
<<<When you initially said you couldn't delete files in XBMC, I'm assuming you're referring to media files?
Yes, all the files you can see in the XBMC play list, file manager, avi, flv etc.
<<< My question was whether or not you could delete a specific media file via file manager that you could not delete via the context menu in XBMC.
I am not quite sure, if I understand it right, but I can delete / rename / fully access all files (e.g. all media files) on my system vía all the file managers, e.g. Windows Explorer, and vía all the other programs (which have these options) I have on my system.
<<<Also, when you say "it doesn't work" in XBMC, what exactly do you mean by that statement?
<<< Did you get any message when you clicked on "Delete" in the context menu for that file?
When I right click on the file the context menu opens, I click delete, a message then is shown, "Confirm file delete?", "Delete these files", "Deleting files cannot be undone...". Then I click "Yes", nothing happens, the file is still shown in XBMC and file managers.
<<<Did you verify the file was physically still present on your hard-disk (even after selecting "Delete" in XBMC) by way of your file manager?
Yes, I did each time.
<<<Perhaps you can enable debug logging in XBMC, navigate to a file and select "Delete" from the context menu, exit XBMC and look in your debug log (xbmc.log) to see if any error messages were logged at the time you attempted to delete the file.

OK, I would try it, when anything els would not provide a solution.
Thanks for helping.
