    How can I delete this corrupted file?


    Hello Everyone!

    So today I was trying to rotate a picture in the Windows 10 "Pictures" app, and as weird as it sounds, it didn't rotate the picture. I closed the window, and that's when I discovered that the file became undeletable, and uneditable. It wasn't a virus (the picture was taken by me), so I looked to find a solution, with no success yet. I tried renaming, which would just crash Explorer, tried rotating, still nothing, and I tried to delete, with the result of nothing happening. Can you help me with this, please?

    Do you have another copy? Have you tried booting into safe mode or use a Linux LIve DVD to see if you can remove it and fix any disk corruption?

    Worth a check to see if your "Pictures" app doesn't have it still open.

    Thanks for everyone's help, but somehow I managed to delete it by just starting the PC, and instantly trying to delete it, and it worked (idk how). I tried restarting and deleting before, but it didn't work. My PC is acting so weird :/

    Itunes and iCloud tend to be a bit wonky when you have photos being uploaded to iCloud and downloading to your cmoputer.

    I don't use iCloud (since I'm an Android user), but I do use iTunes though for accessing the Store. Maybe that was the issue? We'll never know.

    It should not. There is a iTunes music service and you can use Google Music to upload your purchased songs and albums for you to use on the device.

    I tried out the Pixel for about a week and I will say that Android OS does not work through Bluetooth.
