I attached screenshot of the all issues,,

can anyone help please figure out the cause since I'm facing this issue with many folders.





The files were probably locked by users.

Using the NetApp CLI you can use the lock command to report on active locks and break them when needed. You can use the MMC of a windows pc/server to connect to the filer and use the MMC GUI to find and break locks.


Check the total path length. i believe we go upto max 255 characters. map a drive upto "Mutual Funds" folder and try deleting the file.
