    Unable to delete Microsoft.DeltaPC folder


    I downloaded Gears of War ultimate through the windows store a couple of weeks ago. didn't really like the game so i decided to uninstall. i searched for the game in my search bar and pressed uninstall. later i started noticing my (cUnable to delete Microsoft.DeltaPC folder :) drive started getting gradually fuller until eventually it had no more room forcing me to delete some folders.

    confused i searched around for what was taking all the room on my drive, eventually finding the Microsoft.DeltaPC folder. and it just wont let me uninstall it.


    i have tried changing folder owner.

    tried changing the owner of the subfolders

    tried reseting the windows store with 4 diffrent methods.

    tried 3 outside deletion software.



    no change, any help would be appreciated.

    :)

    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.
