    Cannot delete old WindowsApps folder from transferred D drive

    I transferred a D drive with an old WindowsApps folder used for Xbox Game Pass to a new computer. When I tried to put the D drive as the default save location it gives me error code 0x80070005.

    I was able to rename the old folder to "Old WindowsApps" so that the computer could place a new default "WindowsApps" save folder in my D drive.

    I've already:

    1. Made sure my time zone is correct
    2. Tried to delete in Safe Mode
    3. Made sure I am admin in general (2nd screenshot)
    4. Set myself as admin of folder and all subfolders (1st screenshot)
    5. Reset the Windows store page

    I already have a new WindowsApps folder for Xbox games, how do I delete the old one?

    How To Delete Old Windowsapp Folder in C:\Program Files?

    So recently I had done a system restore point. In order to have done that I needed to rename the Windowsapp folder (which I renamed to Windowsappss) which I did and system restore worked. After the system restore I noticed that there was another Windowsapp
    folder beside the old one (Windowsappss) and when I tried to delete the old folder I was not able to and said I did not have permission to do so. So my question is how do I completely remove the old Windowsapp folder?
