    II then use the WinPE file manager to delete offending files/folders easily.
    Did microsoft add a File Manager for WinPe now? Or do you mean the open dialogue box for example from notepad?

    And what does WinPE stand for (if its professional edition, thats something some of us don't have) and some of us don't know shortened words.

    No, WinPE = Windows Preinstalation Environment. It's a special Windows used to recover Windows like when you boot to advanced mode.

    Since i hate to get running out of options (i have no windows cd's) and i hate booting into special modes which is too technical for me. And since i have no other backup transfer drives that are equally big i might have to either

    1. Format the drive and redownload everything (getting torrents for 20 power rangers seasons is a pain, we dont get dvds for shows here in iceland)
      -
    2. Or let the folder sit there since it doesn't affect anything. (If i can hide it so it can't be seen let me know how.)

    This is the best example: Win10XPE - Build Your Own Rescue Media

    I have only used it to clean install Windows.
