I create a folder....then try to delete it and I get the message below. Although it says I cant delete it, when I select OK it deletes it. This is annoying to say the least. Why must this false warning come up every time I delete a folder?
I haven't actually seen it where it deletes the folder after it said it wouldn't. I would check the user permissions. Maybe there is a conflict between the workflow and folder permissions. Like, maybe your not allowed to delete a folder from the workflow but you can from the folder permissions.
The error is complaining that you don't have rights to delete the folder from the local disk, which mean you probably don't have all the rights you need to your vault view. This usually happens because of Windows UAC or possibly because you weren't an administrator of the PC when it was created or it wasn't created by you. In any case you should be able to fix it from an administrative command line by running this command:
icacls c:\Aero_PDM /grant Users:(OI)(CI)F

If it were that simple.....I am the EPDM Admin. I have every right possible
It does not sound like Charley is talking about EPDM permissions - more on the Windows side - which I had not though of.
I have this problem too, but not every time.
Worked for me. Thanks! It was on our EPDM server that I would RDP to.
Interesting thought. I will try this out and post the results.
I'm with you...hate that dialog.
The fact that the folder is gray, even in this dialog box, leads me to the theory that it is not completely an EPDM issue -that it has something to do with the OS. The OS must be locking the folder for some reason. I've had times where I get the message that it could not delete the folder but it does, other times I cannot delete the folder until a reboot.
In that case it may be a process that's holding onto a file handle in that folder. You can track that down using Process Explorer by clicking Find->Handle or Dll and typing in the full path of the folder you are deleting, then it will tell you what process is keeping you from being able to delete it.
The Folder being White is the fact that it is not in the vault and local.
Have you tried working off line and deleting it that way?
