Saved an ATTACHMENT into a library folder, and CANNOT delete it

Hi,
Saved it to access it easily, actually it's the email itself (the icon is an enveloppe) I sent to a library folder, i can't delete it. I tried to send it elsewhere, it sends a copy of itself but won't delete: every copy is NOT deletable. What to do? Please.
It's really bothering me. I have 5 copies of it now
Thanks for any answer!

Hello Eve, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You may be able to delete them using the free program Unlocker.

Hope this helps,

This has always worked for me;

1. To Use a Elevated Command Prompt in Windows
A) Open a Elevated command prompt.

B) Go to step 3.

2.To Use a Command Prompt at Boot
A) Open a command prompt at boot.

B) In the command prompt, type diskpart and press Enter.

C) In the command prompt, type list volume and press Enter.
NOTE: This will let you see what the drive letter is for the drive that you want to delete the folder in since it may not always be the same drive letter that it is in Windows.

D) After making note of the drive letter, type exit and press Enter.

3. In the command prompt, type the command below and press enter.
NOTE: Substitute Full Path of Folder within quotes below with your folder's full path within quotes instead.
Code:
RD /S /Q "Full Path of Folder"

NOTE: For example, if I wanted to delete a folder named Folder on my desktop, I would type this command below.
Code:
RD /S /Q "C:\Users\UserName\Desktop\Folder"


4. The folder should now be deleted.

5. Close the command prompt.
NOTE: If you used a command prompt at boot, then also close the System Recovery Options window and restart the computer.
