Cannot Delete Files on exFAT Drive

Geeks - If you are having trouble deleting files from an exFAT drive, there are a few things you can try. First, make sure the drive is not currently in use. If the drive is being used by another program or process, you will not be able to delete files from it. You can try closing any programs that may be using the drive and .


If the drive is not in use, there may be an issue with the file permissions on the drive. In this case, you can try changing the permissions on the files or folders you want to delete. To do this, right-click on the file or folder and select "Properties". In the Properties window, go to the "Security" tab and click on the "Advanced" button. In the Advanced Security Settings window, click on the "Change" link next to the owner name.


In the Select User or Group window, type your user name into the box and click on the "Check Names" button. This will ensure that the user name is entered correctly. Click on the "OK" button to continue. You should now be able to change the permissions on the files or folders you want to delete.


If changing the permissions does not work, you may need to use a third-party program to delete the files from the exFAT drive. There are many programs available that can help you delete stubborn files, such as Unlocker or FileAssassin. These programs can force the deletion of files that cannot be deleted using normal methods.


I hope this helps! If you have any further questions, feel free to ask.
