Item Not Found, Could not find this item

When you try to delete a file on Windows Server 2008 R2 that is 0 bytes in size you might get the following message:

Item Not Found – Could not find this item.
This is no longer located in %location of the file%. Verify the item’s location and try again.

If you try to refresh, nothing happens as the file is really there, but it has 0 bytes in size and thus cannot be deleted.

To solve this do the following:

Open CMD in elevated mode (right click on the CMD and select Run As Administrator)

Navigate to folder where this file is located.

Type del *.* when you’re located in the folder. Type Y to confirm.

Your problematic file should be deleted now.

Comments are welcome.
