  1. Delete unused user folders.


    I have two user accounts on my Wndows 10 desktop; mine and Administrator. As I am short of space on the C: drive I would like to remove folders named 'Default' and 'Public'. Can I simply delete these two folders without affecting the operation of my PC? Thank you.

    :)

  3. topgundcp Win User
    Unable to delete a folder - Invalid folder name


    Suggestion:
    1. Run chkdsk x: /r to make sure that there's no HD corruption.
      x: is the drive containing the folder you want to delete.
    2. Try to delete the folder again. If still does not work, go to step 3.
    3. Download: Download - Linux Mint and create a bootable USB using: Rufus - Create bootable USB
    4. Boot up with Linux Mint and try to delete the folder again.
      NOTE: Unlike WinPE. Linux does not have any Windows permission imposed to it so it is easier to delete.

  4. Delete unused user folders.

    Windows Mail. Empty Folder will not delete

    Hi All,

    I have emptied an unused Folder and tried to delete it from my list of Folders. It is now a sub-folder and displays under the Deleted folder. When I right click to delete the folder and asked do I really want to delete it, a message appears at the top of
    the screen in an orange coloured banner stating the Folder cannot be deleted.

    Any suggestions welcomed.

    Regards, Stephen
