Undeletable file

I clicked the record button in PAS. The record failed (probably cause I set a high resolution), but it still created a file, 0 bytes in size, which cannot be deleted.

I've tried restarting my computer, giving myself full control over the file (changed permission settings), but I can't delete it. It says

Code: Select all

This is no longer located in C:\Users\*myname*\desktop. Verify the items location and try again.

I know this isn't really a Sandbox issue, but if someone knows how to fix it, it'd help a lot! :D

Try renaming it, then deleting it. Its worked for me in the past, could work now.

Right-Click the Desktop field and choose: Refresh

IF the file is not really there, it should be cleared up.
