    Format still worked Only 135 updates and then cloning to the SSD. I'm back to Windows 8.1 Pro and I think will enjoy it until July 29th.

    Now, where is that Windows 10 invitation?

    I'd try this:

    1. Take ownership of the folder
    2. Set full control to your account
    3. Rename the folder
    4. Log off / Log in
    5. Try to delete
