I ran across a server today that just wouldn’t allow me to delete a Quickbooks Update folder. I used the Windows shell to grant access, take ownership, etc, but no matter what I did, it just would NOT allow me to delete the QBUpdate folder. (@#$@#%@)
Found this on a Google search, tried it, and it worked perfectly. Posting here for future reference…….
SET DIRECTORY_NAME="C:\Locked Directory" TAKEOWN /f %DIRECTORY_NAME% /r /d y ICACLS %DIRECTORY_NAME% /grant administrators:F /t PAUSE
