On a windows 7 install to a SSD drive the hiberfil.sys file was created, I want to remove it. I not only have administration rights on the computer, I am the one administrator, having taken over the default admin.
As you can see in the CMD (top left), when putting in the command
powercfg -H Off , it just says
Invalid Parameters - - try "/?" for help, so I tried different caps/non-caps variations. See Administator there in the title.
Deleting: In the requester there (bottom left) You can see I attempted to delete the file, which tossed up
This action cannot be completed because the file is open in another program
Settings: In the power options (right) you can see hibernation was turned off, and the computer had since been booted.
Explorer: In the explorer window (bottom) you can see the existance of the hiberfil.sys System file, as it resides on the root of the C: disk which is a partition of the SSD.
Why does the powercfg -H Off function not work to remove the hibernation file, when i am the administrator?
