    Unable to remove $SysReset

    Hi i am running windows 10 with all the latest updates and i have found this folder on my laptop and i am not able to delete it $SysReset

    I have done a search on this forum and i have followed most of the advice in the posts but nothing seems to work, i have deleted some of the files manually but i am not able to delete it completely

    I have tried in safe mode, Disk cleanup, command line and other methods posted in other posts i have renamed the folder and restarted the computer but it still will not delete

    Nothing seems to work

    I think this happened because i put the windows 10 dvd in my computer to make a usb flash drive boot drive and it was after i did i i saw the $SysReset folder

    Any help would be good

    Here's a description of what it is:

    If you can't delete it (although the article suggests you should be able to), then like anything else you can delete it when Windows is not running.

    You can:
    - Boot your PC to a command prompt (via SHIFT click Restart) and follow the prompts through to get to a command prompt.
    That's if you're confident in using the command prompt, and noting that the drive letter will not then be C:
    - Boot your PC from a Win 10 bootable disk and via 'Repair your computer' navigate to a command prompt.
    - boot your PC from a bootable disk such as Kyhi's, available from the top of the Software and Apps section here, and use a Win 10 environment, again noting it won't be on C:
    - install a program such as this (free)
    MoveOnBoot Free - Rename/Move/Delete Locked Files on Reboot
    - which also deletes files and folders when restarting.
