Can’t Delete Folder


When trying to delete a folder you get an error that says, “An unexpected error is keeping you from deleting the folder. If you continue to receive this error, you can use the error code to search for help with this problem. Error 0x80070091: The directory is not empty.”

Problem is the directory is empty. After a reboot you still get the error.



  • Right click the drive that the folder is on & click Properties.
  • Select the Tools tab.
  • In the Error checking frame click Check.
  • When prompted click Scan and repair drive. (Damn forgot to take a screenshot)
  • On the Your drive was successfully repaired screen click Close.
