    After May 2019 Windows 10 Update file explorer will not allow deletion of some folders...


    I am using a standalone system running an up to date Windows 10 in a residential environment with no networking or sharing configured.

    The only thing that changed was the installation of an automatic Windows 10 update

    Prior to this there was never any problem deleting or any hint of any incongruity with permissions

    In all relevant security tabs (every folder) I have only two users and both have Full Control: 1. Administrators (SYS-HP\Administrators), 2. User1 (SYS-HP\User1).


    After May 2019 Windows 10 Update file explorer will not allow deletion of some folders citing Permissions as the cause.


    Ways i have successfully circumvented the scenario (which are not suitable as long term solutions because the added steps/time force major inefficiency into and complicate workflow):

    I can delete the folder if I enter into it, delete the video file, then back out one step

    I can delete the folder if I 'switch user and log in as' Administrator

    I can delete the folder if, while logged in as Administrator, I disable all inheritance, remove all ownership, then add back the same ownership & permissions then log back in as local user (Administrators group)

    then as soon as I download a new video folder I cannot easily delete it and have to follow one of the three exception protocols above to accomplish deletion

    All standard advice re permissions (taking and granting of ownership) has failed to rectify


    taking ownership (manually and with the "Take Ownership" batch file that inserts into the right click menu)

    granting ownership (from top down and bottom up)

    registry clean

    and every moderators or users advice from google and answers.microsoft forum entries


    Any new advice before I format and reinstall OS would be appreciated.

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    I deleted $Windows~.BT folder that was propably Windows 10 files. How to recover?

    Hello,

    So about two weeks ago I deleted a $Windows~.BT folder (through the cmd). Now I know that was Windows 10 files ready for install.

    How can I download it again? I'm sure I need to reinstall some update. But which?

    C windows installer folder - Delete?

    He can do symbolic link redirection and move the files in it to a different location. *Wink After May 2019 Windows 10 Update file explorer will not allow deletion of some folders... ;)
    Better try it out in a virtual of first. Just a suggestion.

    Like:
    First move everything in c:\windows\installer to d:\installercache
    Then delete c:\windows\installer folder
    Then type this in command mode as admin
    mklink /d c:\windows\installer d:\installercache

    Removing those installer files is a bad idea. it might prevent you from updating or uninstalling apps.
