I can't really see the problems.
If the files aren't there, doesn't imply your mission is complete?
Also, make sure you're at the correct server.

Mainframe? Internal Services Machine? You do realise they are two seperate things right? are you sure you hacking the correct one?

The Ulitmate Uplink Guide wrote:Delete a file
Mission Descriptions:
Break into a rival computer system and sabotage files
Hack into a computer and delete Key files
Find and destroy crucial data on a mainframe

Ranking: Beginner
Difficulty Rating: 2
Required Software: Password Breaker, File Deleter

This is another really easy one. Just bounce to the server, password break your way in, enter the file server and use your File Deleter to remove the relevant file. Then just reply to the email.
NOTES: If the file is not there, you can simply reply to the mail and finish the mission without doing any work.


1) Make sure you are connecting to the correct server
2) Make sure the file has indeed been deleted or is not present. Remember to scroll down through the files by clicking on the onscreen down arrow button.

BTW i have the same problem, all is like it should be, even if you scroll down, no file. I tryed deleting all files from all servers foundable from interNIC, still can't complete missions. I THINK THIS IS A BUG
