    files have attributes... one attribute is "read-only"... Your NEF files are write-protected. You need to change the attribute from "read-only" to "read-write" before you can delete it...

    Right-click on a file, I believe from there you can select Properties... and from there you can change the Attribute.

    Is your hard drive so filled up that you can only delete so much data at a time?
    Don't mind me... I'm out roaming around somewhere between Zone III and VII.


    Go forth and actuate!

    There is nothing in the attributes section to change, but archive is ticked

    Right-click the file and choose Properties. At the bottom of the General tab you'll see Attributes and I'm guessing "Read-only" will be checked. Uncheck that.

    If you didn't protect the files purposefully there's a chance you accidentally hit the lock button when you were trying to zoom in on the image while reviewing. Happens all the time to me.
