Fix 'Could not find this item' error manually
Before performing further steps, it’s better to start from something simple and assuring. Try to press F5 to refresh the view and see if it helps. Some people also blame the high RAM usage to cause the error, so, if you have many application running, close several of them and press F5 to renew the folder. If hitting F5 doesn’t help, try to reboot the system, after this you may notice that the previously deleted files have vanished.
In this case, type ‘dir /x’ in the place of ‘dir’. This will show you files with DOC 8.3 names, use them in ‘del’ and ‘rmdir’ commands.
You may try to rename the file/folder instead, in case the previous method didn’t work, which can be caused by a too long name of the file/folder. Repeat the steps from the method 3, but instead of ‘del’ and ‘rmdir’ type ‘ren olderfoldername newfoldername’
You may make an attempt to change the object’s location by creating a new temporary folder and moving the unremovable files/folders to it and then delete them all at once.
