For some odd reason, the context menus do appear when it is a shortcut file.
So, right-clicking on the source file will not show the context menus but if you create a shortcut of that file and right-click on the shortcut, the context menus appear.
It seems like the file won't be removed. indefinetly.
Here"s a little context.
I downloaded winrar 32 bit and realized that mine is 64 bit so I tested out the shred and it said it was successful. However, the file still is visible but can't be manually deleted. I am the admin of my laptop. and it keeps asking for admin permissions.I have searched the properties in hopes of taking ownership with no avail.
I will monitor this forum for further updates.
