Can't delete OR chest (Avast Free 13.12 for Mac)
« on: September 16, 2019, 10:50:40 PM »
I've got a few flash drives worth of my old personal files from work computer. When I plug  them into my Mac and scan them with Avast Free 13.12, some of them show infected files - but Avast can't/won't delete OR chest them. I just get the message "Delete Failed" or "Chest Operation Failed".

I have read/write access to the flash drives in question so I'm flummoxed. How do I proceed when Avast can't do anything with the infected files it finds?

Thanks!

Are they compressed / zipped archives?

Right click folder / archive / file and delete manually
