Submission from: (NULL) (

accidentally done the following:

rpt.dir <- paste("c:/report/testR","bestsub",spe="/")

(spe should be sep).  Now the directory "c:/report/testR bestsub " cannot be
removed.  I tried to remove it from Windows Explorer and got the message box:
Error Deleting file or folder:
   Cannot delete file: Cannot read from source file or disk
