can't delete old files f/ external drive

I've recently added new data to my computer, and Retrospect has groomed the back-up files as much as it can, and tells me I need to add new disk space to continue backing up.


Looking at my external drive, there is a folder containing old back-up files f/ a previous script - it's a different name than the current script. I can't delete the files - Windows XP tells me access is denied. I was able to delete other files f/ other previous unused scripts, but not this one. It's taking up 280 GB.


How can I delete these files to free up disk space? Thanks much!
