Deleting Files Off Desktop And / Or Out Of Download Folder During Reboot?

Jan 18, 2016

Okay I just upgraded to Windows 10 this morning and I had all of my downloaded files from other websites all in the desktop under a folder called software after the upgrade it opened up Windows 10 and ran me through the tutorial, and had me reboot after I change some settings. when it rebooted it took about 20 minutes said something about some new features and "we want to show you new features" and others some other junk.

Finally when I did pull the explorer back up the only thing that was there was the recycle bin, my computer, and the downloads folder which was empty I went through every inch of my hard drive I even went over it with undelete Pro and still no traces of my files they were archive files and setup files for software. when I finally did find a trace of one of my old folders, the only thing that would it would tell me was that it was unavailable and that it must've been moved or deleted I took a picture of the error message and can't find answers anywhere..

Why Folder Not Deleting

Oct 1, 2015

I purchased a new hard drive yesterday for the use of nothing but TV and movies. Hard drive works fine, no issues with that. However, a weird issue I'm having is when I moved over my TV and movies from my D: drive to my new drive, the TV folder became, for all intents and purposes, locked.

All my TV is on my new drive and I can view it fine, so that's not an issue. However, for whatever reason, I still have a TV folder on my D drive. As far as I can tell, it's completely empty, but it refuses to delete. I've tried standard deleting, as well as running the CMD prompt as administrator and trying a "del" command, to no avail.

If I attempt to open it, it opens a dialogue box with the title Location Not Available, and it reads "D:TV is not available, access is denied."

If I try to delete it normally, it says I need admin access, which I provide, and then it says access denied anyway.

If I view the security properties, it says I don't even have permission to read the properties of the file.

Deleting A Folder On The System Drive

Aug 25, 2015

A file named customrefresh.wim remains on my C: drive. 9 Gb big. I believe it is a leftover from windows 8.1. I suspect the folder was created by windows 8.1 in connection with creating a USB recovery drive for the 8.1 system. I should have erased it then, but forgot. Can I do it now?

Deleting Music / Pictures And Videos Folder From C (User)

Mar 29, 2016

Is it ok to delete Music, pictures, and videos folders from C:/Users/user? I recall this not working and having to hack the registry a bit to make it work in Windows 7. How can I do it in Windows 10? I really don't need these folders as I find they just clutter up my file explorer and anyway I choose to store my media elsewhere.

Why Do Files Keep Deleting

Mar 29, 2016

It seems that Microsoft feels that they need to force me to upgrade to WIN 10 even though I do not need it. My system consistently flashes the WIN 10 upgrade Now box, and again last night while doing updates it decided to update to WIN 10 on its own. Needless to say, all of my files are gone. My back-up copies are no where to be found. Thus I have decided that Microsoft is no better than any other proprietary system that wants you to do what they want not what you want. Even my carbonate files that I have downloaded over and over again have been deleted. Why can I just not say no and Microsoft leave me ALONE!!!

Can't Log Into Account After Deleting Registry Files

Nov 19, 2015

I have been having problems with successfully updating Windows 10 for the past months where the updates failed to install. I followed some steps on deleting some registry keys under ProfileList, which according to the article were causing the problem. However, after deleting one named s-1-5-18 and rebooting, I am now not able to login to my account. I also don't have access to safe-mode for some reason. When I do the Shift-restart procedure, it takes the to the system configuration window with only one option, shutdown computer.

Alternatively, I also have Kali Linux installed (which is how I am writing this threat right now), allowing me to have full access to my Windows partition, the export file of my registry key I deleted, and I even have access to my recycle bin folder, where I can see the folder s-1-5-18 I deleted. However, I don't know the right directory of this folder to move it to or I don't know if I could just import the registry file I exported before all went to hell. So basically, I have full access to every file and folder within my Windows partition from my Linux partition, which leads me to believe that I should be able to fix the registry files from here.

Batch File For Deleting Temporary Files

Mar 26, 2016

I've just made a very simple batch file for cleaning my temp folder. I've put the .bat file in my startup folder so it would clean TEMP when i log in. I've wrote down the following lines:

rd D:TEMP /s /q

As i said, very simple. But the problem is that it is not working. I also think i know why; there are files and folders in the temporary folder that are in use so the batch file can't delete them.

File Explorer Not Refreshing After Deleting Files In Search

Aug 12, 2015

Using Windows 10 Home.

If I search within a folder for say *.* and then delete a file, the list of files does not refresh.

The file remains listed even though it's been deleted.

If I manually refresh then the file disappears from the list. Same thing happens if I undo the delete.

I need to hit F5 to make the file reappear in the search list.

Can't Save Files - No Email Now System Won't Reboot At All?

Aug 21, 2015

It just sits there with a red screen and circling dots for hours. I have no access to change the boot options or anything else. I did find a thread from someone claiming to be a Microsoft Software engineer giving directions to change ownership of files on the computer. After 3+ hours it finally finished and put out some message about changing profile or something like that. I just booted the system. It took another 3+ hour to complete the reboot and apparently undid al the ownership changes. I gave up for a day or more but turned on the computer last night. Six hours later it still spinning white dot on a red background with no access to any OS.
