Cannot delete .snapshot folder

We have a .snapshot folder on one of our volumes that we cannot delete. We
used to run snapshots on this volume, but turned them off and deleted
snapshots contained within. Whenever we try to delete the folder from NT,
we get a message, "Access is denied, the source file may be in use". We
tried deleting it from a Unix host and get the same problem. What sparked
this is that we have 3 directories that we are trying to mount to on the
filer. 2 of them have no problem, but the third one gives us an "Access is
denied". The only difference that I can see between the 2 that work and the
1 that doesn't is this .snapshot directory that I can't get rid of. Some
insight, please?

Remember, you are unique... just like everyone else!
