I, User X, use miniconda for python/analytics purposes. Whenever it downloads a new package it creates file in userAppDataLocalContinuumminiconda3…
Recently I was unable to add new pkgs, it kept giving me Error: “Permission Denied”.
I decided to uninstall and reinstall the whole thing, but wasn’t able to delete some powershell files in it.
I don’t get it. It says it needs permission from ‘User X’. I am User X!
command: whoami also says I am User X.
So far I’ve tried the following.
remove-item .conda-hook.ps1 ==>[Error: Access Denied]
remove-item .conda-hook.ps1 -force ==>[Error: Invalid Argument]
remove-item -force .conda-hook.ps1 ==>[Error: Invalid Argument]
del .conda-hook.ps1 ==>[Error: Access Denied]
–[Tried this in both powershell and cmd]
takeown /f .conda-hook.ps1 ==>[Error: Access Denied]
Tried the same after rebooting and also by Running as admin.
Please help me delete this, without deleting it I cannot reinstall miniconda/anaconda. Preferably give the solution as powershell commands instead of a script.
