    Can't Delete Folder
    « on: October 27, 2017, 09:40:51 AM »
    I'm unable to delete this folder and can't figure out why. I'm an administrator to the drive itself and have inherited ownership.

      I installed the OS. It's Server 2012 R2 Standard.

      The drive is a basic partition.

      Didn't ask that...3M Coding is a program that someone installed.

      Was this perhaps a copy of Server that was from a corporate liscense ? ?

        This is a brand new server and I just created this folder for archiving. There is nothing inside of it. I'm having this issue with multiple folders that I've created on this drive.

        what do the permissions look like in the root of the drive?
        Also, try using the command line to verify permissions (use icacls.exe for this).
