    Cannot delete an .SLP file


    Hi there!

    I had installed Server 2019 on Hyper-V . I deleted it and also attempted to delete other related files. Basically I followed the proper procedure to delete a VM. This is not the first time I have done this either. I had no issues before but this time it will not let delete an .slp file:
    7240B4D9-F23E-4E7A-B86F-1B57CBCE7A8F.0000000000000000.slp
    file location:
    C:\VirtualMachine\WindowsServer2019\WinSer2019\Virtual Machines\7240B4D9-F23E-4E7A-B86F-1B57CBCE7A8F

    It says: You need permission to perform this action.

    I am an admin on my computer. I restarted a few times already.

    I even completely removed Hyper-V.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance!

    Merhaba selim kardeşim.

    If you are not able to erase a file from windows you can use these tools; (just google them)
    DeleteOnReboot
    IOBitUnlocker
    ThisIsMyFile
    Unlocker

    Sometimes it doesn't matter if you are an admin or not in Windows when you erase something, you have to change permissions of object's.

    Thanks for the quick response!!

    I tried:
    • DeleteOnReboot
    • ThisIsMyFile

    I got the same permission error. But the Unlocker worked like a magic That's definitely the keeper!

    Thanks again!!
