    deleting hard drive files

    Hi,

    May we know what type of file are you trying to delete? Would it be Office documents, media files, or picture files? If you're trying to delete files for free some space on your device. We suggest to perform a Disc Cleanup. Kindly follow the steps below to
    perform the task:

    • Type in Cortana Disc Cleanup
    • Choose the files to delete
    • Click on "Clean up system files"
    • Click on Ok

    For any concerns, don't hesitate to get back to us.

    Regards.

  3. Can't delete a video file from my foldier

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community. I understand the inconvenience you faced. I will certainly help you with this.

    I suggest you to try deleting the video file in safe mode and check if it allows you to delete the file. If issue persist, try deleting it after taking full permission of video file. To do so, kindly follow the below given steps:


      • Right click on the file and click on Properties.

      • Click on Security, check Owner should be "SYSTEM" in
        Advance tab.

      • Now check the save for C:\Users\<username>

      • Owner should also be "SYSTEM"

      • Check the users you signed into windows as (should be your Microsoft account) should be in the "Permissions entries" list with "Full Contol"

      • If not, Add the user you are logged in as.

      • All the folders and sub-folders below should be "owned" by the user you are logged into windows with
        importantly, have a permissions entry for "full control"

      • Check for all the related folder where you are getting same error, but for some reason that same user is missing a "Permission Entry". Add a "full control" entry for the user and you should be able
        to save to that folder and all sub-folders

    Hope this information helps. Post back with updated issue details for further help.

    Thank you.
