    Lightroom CC won't delete videos

    grits5 Level 1

      When I try to delete a video in LR I get a message box popping up that says -- The file named xxx.mov cannot be moved to the recycle bin.

       

      I imagine that I could simply remove it from LR and then delete it through Windows but that would run the risk of deleting the wrong file. The entire process needs to happen through LR to maintain integrity and avoid errors. But LR refuses to do it. In most cases the files are short so not too large for the recycle bin. But even if they were, I should get an option allowing me to permanently delete it. But I don't get that.

       

      Any help on how I could address this would be appreciated.

       

      I am running LR CC (Creative Cloud) on Windows 8.1.
