    I couldnít figure out why a particular folder canít be deleted or copied (attached).

    Thank you

    Hello Jamal,

    Do you get an error message or anything when you try? If so, what does it say?

    Brink, that might be a folder to leave be...I'm not home, however, I think it's something internal. A quick Google:

    Also, I wanted to see the root of the issue. I went to the deep folder below which cuases the issue. It canít be open or deleted. However, it can be renamed

    F:\All\Software\Microsoft\SQL Server Standard 2014 x64\1033_ENU_LP\x64\Setup\sqlsupport_msi\PFiles\SqlServr\120\Setup

    What might the issue here?

    Run Check Disk on your F: drive to see if it reports any bad sectors.

    Thank you Brink for the help. The “CHKDSK” works fine. The problem is resolved.
