VLC: Unable to delete installed folder from my flash drive

I installed VLC portable player in my flash drive. It got corrupt for unknown reasons. So, I tried to delete it to install a fresh copy. But it won't let me delete the folder. It says, "Can't remove folder plugins:directory is not empty". Please, help me out.

Reboot + CHKDSK

The drive probably has logical errors on it. Reboot the PC. Plug the drive in. And check it for errors (right-click in Explorer, Properties, Tools tab).

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Also, look for any files in

Also, look for any files in that folder, like another level down or a thumbs.db that has become hidden. You may have to delete them from the bottom up.

Use Eraser Portable

It deleted everything windows wouldn't.

self.path = path if self.path == None else self.path
