    Why don't you try saving any other folders or files you want from that drive and then simply re-formatting the partition using Disk Management.
    you wont believe it
    i tried that and many things
    but when i tried to copy my data into other partition
    the eta is one day
    and the transfre speed is dynamic and slow

    You can change ownership manually, on your screenshot, click on Change and add your username, then check and OK.

    Or you can delete it, it seems like a leftover from WinUpdates, though 300GB is a bit excessive, unless you use Insider.

    I tried to do it but it doesn't allow me
    And my account is the owner

    I'm an insider as well

    Still im trying to copy it in other partition

    All this suggests that your G:\ partition might have got corrupted at some point. Have you tried a disk error check?

    hie i cannot delete a folder which is occupying around 300 gigs
    That's a lot of data.
    Before deleting it, you might want know what's in it.

    My first guess is a backup (File History on?)

    I like to use Linux Mint in situations such as this:
    Download - Linux Mint
    I use the Mate edition, but other folks like Cinnamon

    Boot to the Linux thumbdrive
    take a peek at what 's in the folder

    Then it's your decision to leave it alone or remove it.
    I'd leave it alone until I knew exactly what is is and why it's there.

    You probably already figured this this out, but you can delete files and folders from Linux as well.
