After I figured out how to delete a project (why not just have a delete button in the Project Dialog box) that I didn't want created in the first place (apparently some missed option in the pack&go process) I now cannot delete the incredibly convoluted wokspace folder structure it created.
I deleted the project shortcut as was posted somewhere else and it no longer shows up in the Project dialog box. However, the workspace it created cannot be deleted. I had even removed the workspace from the project before I got rid of it.
I simply get a windows error that it cannot delete the folder(s). I am an admin of this entire folder structure and everything beneath it.
I have opened and closed inventor making sure the project is still not in existence. I have verified the workspace is not listed under any other project. No other user has been to this folder or opened any files even closely related to my work.
What do I need to do here?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Check the permissions and security on the folder. It might be set to Read Only or the security permissions might be messed up.

I can create / modify / delete any other folder / file in the entire drive. I don't believe this to be a windows driven issue.
I am going to try to delete it from another computer and see what happens.
Otherwise, I guess I will just learn to live with it. And be very careful to not create workspaces going forward.
