Error Deleting File or Folder

Recommended Posts

After cc runs I get the error: "Cannot Remove folder: BACKUP. The directory is not empty."

 

I had received a similar error before for a folder titled DT26. In that case I was able to delete the useless folder and the error was gone.

 

I did a search and found a couple of folders named BACKUP, but they are unrelated to the type of content cc deletes and I can't do without them.

 

Any thoughts?

I figured it out.

 

I have a hard drive on my network which is seen by cc as a local drive. The folder 'Backup' was sitting in the recycle bin and I believe it is corrupt - can't flush it out. I will run dskchk and see if that will kill it.

It's not that CCleaner sees it as a local drive -- it's that Windows combines all recycle bins on all available drives.

 

try:

Start, Run...

cmd /c rmdir /s /q C:\recycler
