How to delete an encrypted file?

pajuhesh80pajuhesh80 Posts: 36Member Troubleshooter
Recently I reinstalled my windows. After installation, I tried to delete 'WindowsApps' folder in partition D:\ (it is not windows partition). I couldn't delete it and I didn't know windows will remove it when I want to install new apps on it. I tried Unlocker, Wise force deleter, take ownership and....
I tried to remove it using ubuntu. I pressed shift+del but didn't work. So I moved it to trash and then pressed empty trash.
After that, '.trash-1000' folder appeared. Deleted folder was in it!
Now I can rename it but I can't remove it. I tried file shredder, cmd, terminal and....
There is no file in that folder, just there are many folders.
Seems that these folders are encrypted. When I uncheck 'Encrypt contents to secure data' and press apply, it says:"The specified file could not be decrypted".
How can I delete it? It's annoying me!
