    Disk space - Space Sniffer Access is denied - Code 5

    I have a acer 5552 running windows 10 although this problem was there under windows 5

    I ran space sniffer and this shows 106.2GB of unaccessable space. The space sniffer console shows the files that make up this space. Here is an example

    WARN 11:18:54 - Unable to examine C:\$Recycle.Bin\S-1-5-18 (Access is denied. - code 5)

    WARN 11:18:54 - Unable to examine C:\$Recycle.Bin\S-1-5-20 (Access is denied. - code 5)

    WARN 11:18:54 - Unable to examine C:\$Recycle.Bin\S-1-5-21-1762652693-428376908-199865491-500 (Access is denied. - code 5)

    WARN 11:18:55 - Unable to examine C:\$Recycle.Bin\S-1-5-21-4284531438-3182828447-3916045307-500 (Access is denied. - code 5)

    WARN 11:18:55 - Unable to examine C:\1fa3c87dbfc77f636413226b6b67a855 (Access is denied. - code 5)

    WARN 11:18:55 - Unable to examine C:\6d694d1fcef5cc1966113b3fd884\mousekeyboardcenter (Access is denied. - code 5)

    WARN 11:18:55 - Unable to examine C:\6d694d1fcef5cc1966113b3fd884\prereq (Access is denied. - code 5)

    All the files end with hte Access is denied - code 5

    Can I delete these to release disk space or is there anything else I can do ?

    Thanks

    Hello I'm trying to use a software to update one of my programs and I'm asked to allow the file to go through, I say yes but when it goes further I start getting error code number 5 stating that access is denied, I have no idea how to fix this because
