Every week I back up the contents of QuickLaunch; so every week, I replace last week's backup - by deleting the contents, and then replacing them with a fresh copy of the QuickLaunch contents. At every deletion I am queried 'do I really want to do this ?' and desktop.ini is mentioned. Is there a way I can give permission once and for all ? I have already ticked 'Hide protected operating system files' and that seemed to fix the problem, but it did not.
