Windows 8.1. Admin account.
I have a hard drive installed that I use for media (ie. not system files, etc). I was testing various screen capture programs and one of them created a couple of folders that I now can't get rid of.
In the past when I run into this kind of problem, it is fixed by either changing the permissions or, when that fails, taking ownership and then changing the permissions. But in this case, it won't even let me do that!
Right-Click -> Properties -> Security:
You must have Read permissions to view the properties of this object
OK, so click Advanced. Can't do ANYTHING.
Beside "Owner" is:
Unable to display current owner _Change
Clicking Change yields:
You do not have permission to view or edit this object's permission settings
No option to do anything!
I'm really having a wtf moment and could use some help.
I can't even tell how much room these things are taking up as it won't even give me that information!
Edit: I think I've determined that it was the program Camtasia which did this. I installed their trial software and subsequently removed it after determining it wasn't what I was looking for. Looking at their forums I see mention of these folders, but the answer is that they "should" auto remove on their own. No suggestions on how to get rid of them.
