There is a directory/folder on my secondary drive D that I cannot remove no matter what I try because attempting to remove it results in an Windows error message that states that the item I am trying to delete "is no longer located in that directory". It does not, however, say that the directory in use and provides me with 2 choice - Cancel or Try Again. It is a folder/directory for an extracted Mass Effect 3 High Resolution Mod .rar archive. The name of the folder/directory is "3. Master File Zona C - ME3 HighRes Structures, objects and machinery" . The folder/directory became problematic (not usable or remove-able) immediately after I successfully extracted a .rar archive with the same name into that folder/directory. I had to re-extract the same .rar archive into a different directory, which worked wonderfully and I could the move extracted files and remove the directory into which they were extracted. When I try to delete it or rename it, it tells me that such a folder/directory does not exists. I tried using the latest Unlocker (1.9.2), GiveMePower, CCleaner (with CCEnhancer), and JV16 PowerTools 2014 to either forcibly delete the directory during boot or to clean out all the temp files & folders + clean the registry, but none of tools and methods I used worked. I also ran 'chkdsk D: /F', but no problems were detected and the issue was not resolved. The folder cannot be renamed due to the same error, but it can be moved pretty much anywhere, except for Recycling Bin. Finally, I used Indexing Options in Windows 8.1 Control Panel, and ran Index Rebuild for all drives from the Advanced Options screen/menu, which also did not work. How do I get rid of this kaka? I need a solution that does NOT involve "Taking Ownership" or adjusting/changing/editing/adding user/administrator/system permissions, which has always resulted in big problems for me down the road. How the hell do I get rid of this booboo, considering that it doesn't even exist???
