After dragging pictures by selecting all and dragging from my Zio drive I find that I cannot delete them without windows making a copy and putting it back its driving me mad

Welcome to the forums Noknowledge

Instead of dragging try cut and paste this may work for you...:D

Desktop delete

thanks but I tried that and in a blink of an eye they all came back, however, I realised that they were all copies, so I deleted the originals first then the copies, now they are gone. but I still would love to know why it happened and why I had to go to such extreme measures to delete the copies. any ideas?

Try using the select all > copy

then click on the drive and directory you want and use the past command dont drag them around.

finaly go back to where the orig. files were and select all > file > delete.

I think that you are making short cuts to these docs and not actually coping the files.

Thanks, all I did was to highlight the group of pictures and drag them to the desktop from my Zio drive, does this make copies?.

When I do it that way it moves them to the desktop and they are removed from the original folder.

Try highlighting them then go to edit click copy then go to the desktop and right click then paste...;)
