    File with 0KB In Downloads Cant Delete It


    I need your help guys. I have a file in my Downloads and it says is 0KB exactly but when I try to delete it gives me the following - Could not find this item. This file is no longer located, Verify the items location and try again. Now it says Type - File , Size - 0 bytes. How do I delete this file exactly ? Thank you

    Thanks man. Actually man I used another method this one Simply install Winrar. Right click on troublesome file or folder. Click on winrar's Add to archive... Click on the small box next to Delete files after archiving and OK. Your troublesome file changes into a winrar file. Simply right click and delete it. Voila! and It actually work the file is gone. Thanks for the video.
