    One Drive - deletion of files

    I have just uploaded a lot of files to One Drive. I got the message that One Drive was full. As one of these files was quite large and I didn't really need it, I tried to delete it in File Manager. I'm getting a lot of red and white crosses and the error message 0x80070091: The directory is not empty. screenshot attached. How do I delete it?One Drive - deletion of files-error1.jpg

    Visit OneDrive with your web browser and try deleting the file.

    Or try signing out and back into Windows. That file may be locked to some process while Windows is running. I notice the file says "Sync pending". Sign-out or restart Windows and try again.
