Indestructable hiberfil.sys with my means.

WIN7/Micro$oft is fu***g me in the **s with this hibernation file this time.

use pwrconfig
check poweroptions not present at all
hiberfil still there
restarts ........
try delete - used by another program
try taking rights - red X + The requested security information is either unavailable or can't be displayed.

Allocation is still the same 8GB.I need the space on my small SSD.Plus I never use hiber, only sleep.
