cannot delete file

I can not delete file. it is a wav file i rendered and then i found out was probley too big (1.5 hours). so anyway, all i want to do is delete it

the file itself became inaccessible in windows explorer and i cant delete it. trying to open the folder it is in just times out (the progress bar in the file path just keeps going and going).

the other files in the same folder work fine.

already tried safe mode > rename or delete = did not work
