I'm having issues with two folders that got corrupted and need to delete them, but cannot figure out how to do so. I tried to take ownership in KDE using the built in feature (Right Click Root Actions-Ownership to active user) but that did not work. I'm trying to take ownership of them so I can Delete them, but it seems the Space in the Folders name is causing an issue when I use the terminal. I think I've ran into this issue before but cannot remember how to resolve it. Below is what I've done in Terminal.
Trying to delete from "SURFIN-2" USB, the "HOWARD COHEN-2" Folder. Tried Removing it with terminal:
"sudo rm /media/chris/SURFIN-2/HOWARD COHEN-2/"
But that did not work either.
Here I'm trying to take owner ship of it so that maybe I can delete it
