Disposition: [KBR 22-AUG-84  I''m not given a lot of info on this.  What are the names of the files involved?  What were you doing when you created them?  I don''t have a repeatable case or all that many complainers.  You can use FLOPPY.TO.FILE to pick up the pieces when FLOPPY.SCAVENGE fails.  PRIORITY ← UNLIKELY instead of ABSOLUTELY]  '

Description: '
5. I''m finding it impossible to delete certain files from my floppies.  (These '
are files I put there explicitly, not something like that special unkillable'
file which appears on {DSK}.)  In fact, I have multiple files with the same '
name and version number!  I tried a (FLOPPY.SCAVENGE) since it appeared the '
floppy critical records were indeed "confused", but to no avail.  Any ideas on'
how to correct this (and/or how it could have occured in the first place)
