Error when deleting folder - Moved [New Thread]

i don't like the attached message when i try to delete a folder that contains another folder.

why can't it just say something like "cannot delete folder as it contains a subfolder"?

and just who is S-1-5-21-2525366777-830484531-1026876974-1000 anyway?

i turned off UAC long ago, hoping to avoid this permissions thang...

(i hope i haven't gravely compromised my system security by revealing that number!)

That number is the Security ID for a user - as you are seeing a number rather than a name the user concerned is either from a previous OS or another OS in a multi-Boot system.

i only see this when the folder i want to delete contains a subfolder.

after seeing the error message, i can easily delete the subfolder. then i am able to delete the top folder, without having any permission issues.

so it tells me it's not mine when it contains a subfolder, but lets me delete it later anyway...

If you delete the inside folder can you delete the outside one with the error?
