    Unable to delete folder from PC


    I have a folder that I can not delete. When I try, I get an error message saying the file is no longer at this location and to verify it's location and try again.
    So how do I verify it's location?

    I was able to transfer the files from the folder and put them into another folder but still unable to delete the first folder.

    Thanks for any help.

    Welcome to the forum. What folder? First job is to run a disk check in case it's corrupted

    I have many many folders of Old Tim Radio programs (over 3,000). This was one of them.

    The files in the folder are "in good working order". I'm was able to listen to all of them after I moved them to another folder.
    It's just an empty folder now.
    I run a scan each month and this time it came up OK.

    Try unlocker:
    Unlocker Download

    I have just used it successfully to delete a Word file that Windows refused to delete.
