Using Sync Toy to transfer data from my external, backup hard drive, to my brand new laptop, I find that the transfer goes well but gets stuck towards the end of transferring. It takes forever and I see no movement on the progress bar. I that it gets stuck on a path Windows\winsxs\winsxs\x86_policy.8.0.Microsoft.VC80.CRT_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_x-ww_77c24773. I don't know how that got onto my external, backup hard drive previously.
Interestingly, there is no file at the end of this path. When I go about deleting this path, I get a pop up with:
"An unexpected error is keeping you from deleting the folder. error 0x80070091: The directory is not empty"
How can I delete this, what appears to be, superfluous item?
