✔ Best Answer
Is it a folder you created and put somewhere? It would be interesting to know what the folder is and where it is.

You could try this on it:

There are other possibilities if that doesn't work out.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Boot off a Linux disc & delete the file from outside the Windows environment.

Undeletable? try this -

try ALL of them one by one before continuing.

If nothing works, try linux, as riider said.

But from my experience, if any variant of linux supports extended NTFS features (compression and others), it might be difficult for files to be deleted that occupies almost the core part of the allocation table of the partition. (if your file is in an NTFS partition). Win95 Marburg, a malware, does exactly that, stores itself behind the core part of the allocation. I wont go into detail, but I said it cause its relevant.

If a folder could not be deleted even if no processes are working on it, then it might be as well considered as a virus, but without the spread, infect and destroy mechanism.

Linux distros i recommend (direct download links) -

Slitaz (35 mb) - http://mirror.slitaz.org/iso/4.0/sl...

Slax (216 mb) - https://www.slax.org/download/7.0.8...

Puppy linux (not a direct link, has lots of variants. approx 150-190mb. would work anything except *maybe* those based on slackware, for your delete thing) - http://www.puppylinux.org/downloads/

download any one of them, write it to a CD or USB (SliTaz is messy with USB though, sorry), and boot through the media. Browse to the file, and delete it! Simple!

hope you got to delete the files by now :) do drop back with results :)

in the future, use a reliable backup utility, not everything in the internet can be trusted.
I recommend AOMEI.

And lastly, I wish you a happy new year :) Happy computing!
