Hi friends,
I am trying to delete a file.
This is the program for the same.:

File f= new File(file);
boolean success=false;

if(f.exists())
{
System.out.println("File Exits: " +f.exists()+" Files Deleted:"+f.delete());

}

}

This outputs:
File Exits:true Files Deleted:false

I also checked for the appropriate permissions.
This file has all permissions.
Can any one help me regarding why this file is not getting deleted.

Any help is always appreciated.

Thanks and Regards,
-Pankaj.

Check if you have closed all the streams accessing the file & the file is not kept opened by any other application.
