    Cannot delete folder in the C:\Temp

    Checking disk I discovered a folder c:\Users\...\Temp\imgMnt01 with size 10Gb, see here:
    http://i.imgur.com/rKWyNVK.jpg
    It looks like the image of an entire disk Win7+C:, probably in conjunction with NTlite, I used a long time ago.
    I suppose, if the Temp directory is not needed for running os.
    But it is not delete in any way: no programs like Unlocker, or MoveOnBoot, etc. Even in safe mode.
    I have admin rights, I am the only one on this PC.
    What to do? I cannot find any procedure, consult someone with a similar experience?
    Thanks for the advice

    That directory name suggests that you have mounted an ISO image and the contents are in that folder. Do you have an image mounting program?
    Check the permissions to see if you have delete rights. If not you should be able to change the owner to yourself, then you will have delete rights.

    cheers, Paul

    I must say that I've never found any undeleteable folder/file that Unlocker couldn't delete!

    But there will always be one or two items in the TEMP Folder that Windows itself will not delete, never found that to be a problem.

    True - these will be files which are currently in use.
    I doubt that the OP's problem is related to these.

    If he mounted an iso image as Paul T suggests in #2, the file is probably in use.
