Computer/Internet Issues & TroubleshootingAnyone with questions about the terribly complex world of computers or the internet should try here. We will also try and help with troubleshooting any technical problems you may have with the forums.

It ought to be but I cannot find it.
What is wrong with going to My Computer\Nokia 700\MicroSD\Temp2\resource\apps Then "Search" *.r?04 Select all Right click "delete"
The search function is not available on that path.
Basically I think the Nokia 700 is not being presented as a logical drive.
This might be the same issue with Canon cameras; they come up as "imaging device" not as a block device which can then have a drive letter, and XP's Explorer cannot access the pics properly (it can see jpegs but not raw files), whereas win7's Explorer does work properly.
Does Nokia hide the directory? I can't see any reason, otherwise, why a command line operation wouldn't find it and act on it. I have some automated backup routines that work with directory structures like that.
There may indeed be a way to access it from the command line; for example one can access network paths.
But I have done a lot of googling and cannot see any way to do this one.
My Windows knowledge is only what one gets from many years of installing and maintaining it etc and as I said above I think the issue is that the phone is not a "block device". All the USB sticks etc appear as a block device and the USB spec has a standard profile for that. Canon, on their S90 etc little cameras decided to be clever and use the "imaging device" USB profile and M$ had to do a special hack on Windows Explorer (poorly on XP but OK on 7) to make the file system appear like a normal one so you could drag/drop.
In the Nokia 700 case I have tried the win7 Explorer too but it doesn't work any better.
The reason I am digging around this is here. Life is too short to spend too much time on sorting out a bl00dy phone but this issue is worth sorting. There is a 3rd party file browser on the (jailbroken) phone but its functionality is extremely tedious, which is why I would like to be able to browse the filing system on a PC.
Are there any other removable/network drives attached?
Once windows has assigned a drive letter to a removable device it will always reuse that letter for that device. If another drive uses the same letter then when you insert the remoavble drive it will be invisible.
To a file explorer running in the phone, there are drives c: d: e: where e: is a micro-SD card.
Deep in the phone settings, I can make the phone's USB port look like
Mass storage Media transfer Nokia suite Use phone as a modem
I had it set to Nokia suite. Setting it to Mass storage reveals d: and e: as drive letters I still cannot see c: but that's probably because Nokia deliberately block it when the "mass storage" mode is activated. For hacked phones, there are drive remapping utilities that achieve that
