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.
