    selecting files to delete w10

    Is there a program to select some files from different folders. As in select 2 files from folder a1 and some files from folder a2 and so on. I know about copywhiz which I use to copy and paste files but i want to delete them. The reason is when I delete files from a usb the computer takes its time and hangs on 99% deleted or copied. Then it takes ages to go to each folder and delete them.

    Ps. I have tried all the fixes for hanging usb's, but it has happened to all my usb's and my last two pc's and three mb's.

    Hi, normally deleting items on a USB disk is not a problem- issues arise more with their removal. However MS did change the default for that to Quick Removal.

    As to selecting multiple files for deletion, this program allows that e.g. by drag 'n drop. Designed to deal with locked files, it also supports checking for a lock, deletion on restart. Free.

    This should help you identify what may be locking these files.
