I have been trying to delete some old databases without success. I have opened the database then gone to File - Delete Database. Typed in Yes and then OK. However the database stubbornly remains. Any suggestions please.

Never mind using RM to delete --
Go to wherever you have the file/folder --
Highlight the file/folder --
Right click on it --
Select delete.

Hi. Thank you for your suggestion. I gave it a try and when I search the computer files it now does not exist. Unfortunately when I go to RM it's is still there. Undestructible! I think I will have to live with it.

Not sure how RM3 reacts when the database files or their containing folder are write-protected, but right clicking the folder and selecting change attributes to remove the select of Read Only might help.
