Error when deleting file or folder

Can you help? I am trying to delete folder but I am getting an error. Any suggestion where to start?

If I remember right, that error is caused by a locked file. Take a look at the following URL, under " Manually disable locking state". If there are many users on your instance of NextCloud, I would suggest putting NextCloud into maintenance mode, also mentioned at the following URL.

Perfect! Thank you very much! That fixed the issue.

Glad to hear :slight_smile:

I was also getting the same issue of not being able to delete the folder, The HTTP error was also on my project site Apple iPad Support, and after getting the solution from here, I have resolved the issue.

Since I am encountering this error just now, I am offering my comments, despite the time lapse.

The suggested procedure may resolve the problem, but the answers in this discussion open as many questions as they resolve.

Why does this error occur originally, and how might it be prevented? Why can it not be resolved in some straightforward manner, rather than requiring disruptive, and somewhat arduous, administrative intervention?

Does this set of circumstances reflect a bug or design flaw, and if so, has it been reported?


I am getting this and I followed the instructions of checking the CRON and removing file locks… no luck. I had to do the… not recommended way of disablign file locks altogether.

Not work. Please just make a button DELETE work correctly.
