Sir Clive Sinclair (1940-2021)

Clive Sinclair passed away two days ago. For those who don't know who he was, please remember the ZX Spectrum and many other products and technological inventions. The C5 was one of them and could have been a real revolution in the way of looking at individual transport, but the ineffective battery and the complicated relationship with road traffic threw him into the world of bizarre curiosities.

Another solution for deleting files and folders that don't want to be deleted!

  Some time ago we published a solution to delete folders on Windows that don't really want to be deleted.
