Delete files & folders showing Could not Find or Access denied message

Its more often when you are confronted with a pop up window saying “Could not find this item” or “Access Denied” while deleting certain folder or files on Hard Disk Drives. It is very annoying but now you can easily deal with such situation and delete or remove those stubborn files and folders safely and easily.

Unlocker is a tiny application which can handle any such file or folder showing Access Denied message. It can Delete, Rename or Move such files instantly. Let’s see this in an example: I had a Folder named “Resources..” which I was unable to delete as it was showing “Could not find this item” message.
