    Hi!

    I downloaded a magazine in .pdf format. It was suppose to be 47megs, instead it turned out to be 0 bytes.

    I tried erasing it, renaming it, moving it, and was always given the following: Access denied.

    Tried using a file manager, tried using dropbox, still: Access denied

    Googled for two hours, nothing, just lame solutions, and solutions I had already tried. Then was given different ways by android gurus which I could not make heads or tails out of it.

    Can someone out there help, please!

    Thanks,

    PhilG

    out of curiosity, did you try to plug it into a computer and delete it that way? the file might be corrupt or something

    If you have not treid a cold/hard reset may help.

    Remove power
    Turn off
    hold vol down & power until white lettering appears top left
    release both
    allow the TF to boot up

    were you running file explorer as root? or with SU? if you can view it from a pc, that would be easiest...run file assassin from malwarebytes...that'll delete anything..
