    Hi there,

    I need to delete a Windows folder (which is not in use and not on the C-drive) but every time I try to do this I am informed that I do not have permission to do so.

    I have tried changing the owner of the folder to Administrators/my user name in explorer, but then when I try to delete the folder it says that I need the permission of the Administrators, even when I run explorer as Administrator or in safe mode. Additionally, some of the individual folders within it seem to have their permissions completely locked.

    Any thoughts on how to delete this folder are hugely appreciated.

    Many thanks...
