I have two folders on one of my external drives. When I double click them, I am told they are empty but when I try to delete them, I get the following message:

"Could not find this item"
"This is no longer located in G:\. Verify the item's location and try again"

How can I remove these folders?

The folder names are 'APL0NNW1' and 'VENUS_US'. Both are in the root directory.
