    Delete folder/file - access denied

    I am trying to delete a users folder from our 2008 r2 server, and despite the administrator having full permissions it has the access denied error.

    I have tried using RMDIR in the command prompt, but not getting anywhere!

    Any idea's?

    Apparently they are incomplete Google Chrome downloads? Can't you just move them somewhere else for now and delete the rest of the folder. There is some info on the web
