Recently I made installed Windows on my SSD from my old HDD on another PC. I installed it via bootable USB. The problem is that on my old HDD there is a $WINDOWS.BT file that I can't seem to delete.
- I already deleted it once via Disk Cleanup > Delete System Files. Later that day I restarted my PC and the $WINDOWS.BT was somehow on my HDD again even though I made sure I removed it. I tried the same routine Disk Cleanup > Delete System Files but this time there was nothing there.
- I had suspicions that something was wrong since I had 40GB of storage left before $WINDOWS.BT got on my PC and when I deleted it I only had 34.5GB. So the 6.5GB remaining was not to be found. When I saw the file reappear and wasn't able to use Disk Cleanup to delete it, I tried changing the file's ownership to and got caught in a loop. When I changed ownership from Admin to My Desktop it said that I need permission from My Desktop. When I changed the ownership from My Desktop to Admin it said I need permission from the Admin.
