This is REALLY Ticking me off.  

 

There is only one account on this computer and it is set to administrator yet when I try to delete a file that contains original photos (that have been revised) I get the ANNOYING MESSAGE THAT " YOU'LL NEED TO PROVIDE ADMINISTRATOR PERMISSION TO DELETE THIS FILE"

 

The 64 million dollar question HOW do I get this permission to delete a file on my own d@mn computer???

 

Your assistance appreciated because I'm afraid that grinding my teeth  :grinner:  for days is going to cause permanent damage  I can't afford since I no longer have dental coverage (can't afford that either) :nono:

The URL only takes me to this forum discussion on this site?  

 

Meanwhile I thought I had happened on a (for me) genius idea to effect a cure, i.e.  to move the file from One Drive to my desktop.  My thinking was that if I can move files into OneDrive I should also be able to take them out.   I am happy to say that I was able to accomplish that.   My optimism was short-lived, however, as when I again sought to delete the folder I found that the tyrant inside my computer was still as unreasonable as ever.   NO ADMINISTRATOR PRIVILEGE, NO DELETE.   It occurs to me that maybe the mafia might be making a comeback; Sammy the Bull lives?    If so my next question is "Will they be back to break my kneecaps?"   What to do????   My bank account, sadly, is bordering on ZERO so as an alternative I would  give you my firstborn son except i cannot tell a lie, I have no money and no son.    I guess my one recourse is to "BEG, PLEAD for your sympathy   :bowdown:    - I don't mind coz you mean that much to me".   Hmmmm I think maybe I'm channeling THE TEMPTATIONS?  Anyway its true  -  I ain't too proud to beg!   :mellow: Please note:  in my version the lyrics end before getting to the "sweet darlin" part.   :whistle:

Thanks for the link - I went to the OneDrive Website as directed.   The instructions say the top of the page should have the following options: DOWNLOAD, DELETE, MOVE-TO, and COPY but all I have at the Top is either NEW or UPLOAD.

 

Maybe I should add the name of the file I want to delete is PicasaOriginals - does that make a difference.   I think I remember seeing something about that Google was phasing out Picasa?  If I recall Picasa is not a downloaded program on my computer?      Will the fact that the file contains Picasa images - the ones that are saved as original when you edit an image?

Thanks - I followed the recommendation to download "Take Ownership" but when i tried to open it (a zip file) it opened as an image which shows to be INVALID.    What program works for zip files - I don't recall having to choose one before, not something I use frequently so I'm not having any luck?   I see programs to download to open zip files on the site link however they all seem to say that it may contain 3rd party offers which I try to avoid because I always seem to end up with extra UNWANTED STUFF?

 

When I use the URL referenced at the above link to use Take Ownership I get this message (and now I'm more confused than ever because I'm not using Windows XP, I have Windows 8.1):  

"Access Denied" or other errors when you access or work with files and folders in Windows

Support for Windows XP has ended

You can download or create your own Take Ownership registry file from "Taking Ownership Of System Files Or Folders"   link.

Windows can unzip zip archives so is 7-Zip program which is free program.

Strange....I just now downloaded it from Afterdawn (the link) and opened it with 7-Zip with no problem. Here is the link, try it again.

I don't know why it keeps opening as an invalid image

 

I don't want to keep hassling people with it when everyone else has been successful it must be me.   Guess I will just leave the files where they are. 

 

 Thanks for the advice anyway I appreciate the website have gotten a lot of help over the years..

On a similar note - I just downloaded 7-Zip onto my computer and installed it and then tried to use it to open the Take Ownership and it wasn't listed on the programs available to open the file

 

How do I make 7-Zip my default program.

 

I found the file menu in 7-Zip but that doesn't seem to work if I select File Open it doesn't give me anyway to select the file I want to open.

 

Is it just me - it seems I whatever my original problem is I run into other issues trying to deal with the first issue.

 

Sigh or EXPLETIVE  not deleted?

If you right-click on the zip file from After Dawn and select properties does it then offer you the option to select what it opens with?

 

Have a read here

After you have installed 7-Zip, Right click on the zip file, in the menu will be "7-Zip", hover the mouse over it and a fly-out menu will appear, choose "Extract Here" and the uncompressed file will appear.

okay this is too frustrating - I surrender let the files stay wherever they are I have lost track anyway as I moved them off one-drive

 

I think one-drive should advise users that once they upload these files they surrender ownership as they have no control over them.

 

Anyway I appreciate the efforts to help but due to other things of a frustrating nature that are not optional I guess I will focus on those and say the heck with one-drive.
