In a Nas 326 I have a folder with some files that I cannot delete in any way. They are files created years ago by a now defunct PC and every time I try to delete them the message "requires authorization from [nas name]/admin" appears. I try both from Windows and from the file browser inside the NAS, but I can't delete them, I can only modify them. Do you have any ideas? Thank you.

    You can SSH access into the NAS326 with you admin and password and use the linux type command to remove your folder.

    Sorry but I can log into linux as superuser but I don't know where the folder is. If it were Windows ok, but I've never used Linux. Thanks.

    Using WinSCP you'll have a graphical interface. The shares are located in /i-data/<some-hex-code>/ when it's an internal disk, and in /e-data/<some-even-longer-hexcode>/ when it's an external disk.

    I found the files to delete but when I delete them I get "error 3 permission denied". If it helps, these files were in a dropbox folder.

    Yes, use Winscp, it would be more easier to do it.
