I am having this particular issue.
I have tried booting into safe mode, elevated into cmd prompt and even killed explorer.exe but the folder/file i would like to delete cannot be deleted.
Ran a virus scan, zilch, na da. I can create new folders and files in the problematic file and delete those with ease but i cannot delete said folder/file.
This is a Windows 10 unit. And no, i am unable to unplug the hard drive and place it on a different computer to delete it from there.
Those individual files, i am unable to rename them
affected folders i can rename them but not delete them
