I cannot delete a file/folder in my account. How do I solve this?

Solution

When trying to remove a file, you may get an error if the file has such permissions that would not allow you to remove it. The same goes for folders.

However, if it is a folder that you are trying to remove, it may not be the folder itself, which has improper permissions but a file or a sub-folder inside the folder that you want to delete.

To resolve this problem, you must change the permission set on the file in question and if it's a folder, you may have to change the permissions of the files and the folders located inside it as well.

If you don't know how to change the permissions of a file or a folder, contact us
