Bendy Demon Posted August 9, 2022 #1 Share Posted August 9, 2022 Ok, so.... I have this ZTemp folder, right? I use Disk Cleanup to clean it up (as the name implies) yet even Disk Cleanup will not delete the files in it. I get to teh temp folder itsel so I can delete the contents of a particular folder only to find I can't because a thing called 'TrustedInstaller' "owns" it despite it being in the Temp folder. So I tried changing to the ownership to myself -the owner and admin of my own computer- and still it refuses to delete this particual folder- that I want gone. Now since it only has 35 megabytes one would just say to me to just forget it and move on and in most cases I'd say "Sure. Whatever" however this 35 megabytes is a recent development whereas it used to be just a measely 1 or so mb. I do not want to go into teh command prompt because for one I am not adept enough to fix problems and I am very wary of making changes that I do not understand. Microsoft help forums are no help as apparently they don't want to address that issue. I even tried adding another 'group' and that didn't work so even though I am the owner of said folder I can't get rid of it..even when I used the computers admin (which is me too) as owner and I still get told I need the admins permisson even when I access the folder as a admin. You know..Windows 10 is frustrating and they make it that way too. Not like XP or -presumably- windows 7 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
