Folder with Hidden files unable to remove or delete, read post... RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a folder i am unable to move into, Although i can see the folder when i left click it i get the not accessible message.

    I can click the folder and get properties, tells me 0 bytes for size and size on disk, although i can see there is 3gb in the folder using 3rd party program, also disk sizes dont add up hence when i want to cure this problem.

    if i click security tab in properties i get the message "the requested security information is either unavailable or cant be displayed"  

    I can delete the folder without any error message refresh and its still there, also have another folder with 2 pictures in it i can delete them refresh and still there.

    Check if your User Account Control (UAC) is on or not go to Control Panel>User Accounts and click on Turn user control on or off then check it "if not checked" so that you can get permissions to access file.

    Good luck
