    Default Write protection trouble

    Hello! I accidentally created a new folder in my (Galaxy S5) phone while atempting to copy photos from computer to phone. Now the folder is impossible to delete. It says it is write protected. How do I solve this? (Right-click and properties does not say that it is write protected).

    2 questions: did you create this folder on your sd card? And were you not using the default "myfiles" app? Note that NO downloaded apps can write to sd card since the 4.4 android update, only system apps can.

    It was accidentally created when I had the phones 'documents' folder open via usb-cable on my computer.
