    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.

    Good. Yes, other posts ref. Winrar. It seems sad after all this time we still need a workaround to deal with this...

    This is freaking terrific. Thank you! I was going somewhat nuts after some four hours of deep Googling trying to get rid of two of these files - 0 bytes, no extension, location not found - and executing, without any success, every single complicated suggestion, video instruction, and recondite procedure I could find.

    All to no avail, and each to my increasing frustration and mind dulling.

    Then I happened upon your post, wearily decided to give it a try - and voila! in about two or three minutes total time start to finish, both files were gone and the whole terrible wasted evening will soon be nothing but a faded memory.

    Thank you, Fifetox4. You've been a sanity and spirit saver.

    Yes. Incomprehensible, actually.
