    Default Can't delete a zero byte folder in windows 8 desktop

    Hello, guys

    coming here for some help because you guys have fixed all my problems in the past.
    suddenly i found a zero byte folder on my desktop yesterday and when i mouse over, it says "type file, size 0 bytes". so i try to delete it and get a message " can't fidn this item", so it can't be deleted. i am using windows 8 beta 64 bit.

    i have googled this error up and with no luck. most of them did not fix this problem.

    does anyone know what could be causing this? any help would be highly appreciated.

    Default Re: Can't delete a zero byte folder in windows 8 desktop

    Hi,

    Unable to delete the zero byte folder is caused by the ignorance to the space during deleting the folder, which will lead to the system can not find the folder (for the name has been changed). So the windows 8 operating system will indicate you can't fidn this item.

    Try to delete it in NTFS DOS.
