  1. Firstly, make sure you are logged in as an account with administrative privileges.
    Start > Control Panel > Change Account Type
    You should see your account name here with 'Administrator' written underneath. If it says Standard User or Guest, this will most likely be your problem.

    If it does say Administrator, am I correct in saying these files were not created your this computer? If so, take ownership of them using this guide. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc753659.aspx

    Be sure to select "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects"


    If you simply want to delete EVERYTHING on the pen drive, it may be easier just to format it.
  2. I tried this to no avail, somehow Windows has changed some setting pre W10 update perhaps, but what I did was just go into the folder and delete what was in it so I could then go back and delete the folder.

    As far as deleting folders no longer in use, that's what worked for me. Could probably be applied to working within them editing and adding files also, I would assume.
