Can't remove update files
I have a directory called ff8173b3b282fb3580420d937a9858c3 on my external drive that is locked down tight. I managed to reset permission so I could at least see what is in the directory and it appears to be an install or update for .NET 4.0. I can't look at the subdirectories or open any of the files in ff8173b3b282fb3580420d937a9858c3. I am admin for the system, but even administrator does not have any rights to these files. The only permissions set are "Special Permissions" for the System. I tried to reset permissions so child objects would inherit from the parent object but when I checked that box and clicked Apply I got a Permission denied message for every subdirectory, which are called 1024, 1025, 1029 and so on, if that matters.
This directory/path is taking up valuable space on my external drive and I need to remove it.
ANy ideas how I can do that?
Again, I am administrator for the system and the only user account on the system is my account.
Any help would be appreciated.
