    Have you tried right clicking and then going to properties: Unclick Attributes. At Security tab click on Allow full control. Perhaps change the name and file extension of the file to something like 1234.txt.

    Can you delete in from within Macrium Reflect? The data indicates the program is still using the file. If that isn't the case, close all instances of Reflect and try again.

    In my system, I would right click on the file and TAKE OWNERSHIP, then delete it.
