How To Fix Error Of “No Permission To Delete File” On Your Android Smartphone

I remember few months ago when this error page was hunting me, it was so frustrating that i almost formatted my entire phone just to get that stubborn file. But a friend suggested this trick, i tried it and it worked; so here we are.

Sometimes, you might have deleted the app but it will keep reappearing due to the permission (read only) it was automatically set on. The good news here is that we have a solution to fix this issue, as well.

The instant solution is simple and straightforward, since you don’t need anything technical than only an app to fix the issue. The name of the app to use is called “Root folder“. With the help of the app, you can delete any stubborn files from your Android device storage.

How to fix “No Permission to delete file” on Android device

1. DOWNLOAD: Root Folder Android App – Free Version

2. Tap on Mount R/W and immediately, it will change to Mount R/O and you should see Mount R/W beside it.

3. Now locate the stubborn file and delete it. You can also scroll down to Storage Folder and you would see SDcard0 and SDcard1, where SDcard1 is your inbuilt storage and SDcard0 is your external storage.
