A while ago I cloned my internal drive to an SSD and now I’m using the SSD as my primary drive. The ex-system drive is now my “games drive.” However, I can’t seem to delete a lot of the windows folders and crap off this drive. It’s all permission issues.
This is all on my F: drive, it’s definitely not C: that I’m messing with!
I can’t completely delete:
Program Files (x86)
I have done the following:
opened a command window and done “Takeown /F /R” to change owner. Still can’t delete some things.
right clicked on folder, gone to security, clicked on Advanced, set me as owner on folder and recursively on all child objects. Then edited so my account has full permissions. Still can’t delete
This stuff works on some folders but not all. For example, in the “Program Files” folder I’m down to the formerly invisible “Windows Apps” folder - but it won’t go away for nuttin. These folders SAY I have full control but I still can’t delete them.
Is there some program - or command - I can use to completely nuke these useless folders?
