Won't delete empty folders

Post by demoso »

I have a backup set up to backup a folder and all its folders and files from a NAS server to a computer. I have set to keep two full backups and then delete anything older then the last two. It works fine but eventually it will start to have issues deleting the old backups. I will get an error something like this: "ERR 2020-12-18 01:41 An error occurred while deleting "C:\Office Shared Docs\Office Shared Docs 2020-12-04 01;00;26 (Full)\Fleet": The directory is not empty"
When I go a look into the directory it is always empty. It can be different directors at times but it always fails to delete the backup folder from the root due this error message. Even though every time I go back and check the directories are always empty.

Just looking for some ideas. Any help is appreciated!

Are there any hidden files in those directories? I really don't know of any other cause for this kind of issues.
