Hi krishnadurvasula,

It looks like you don't have full permission on the videos or the folders where the videos are saved that you are trying to delete. It is applicable not only on videos but other types of files as well. Here's what you can do:

1. right click on the video(s) (or files or folder you are lack of permission) and go to properties
2. go to security tab you can select whether it's the username(s) or admin that you want to have access then click edit
3. Under Permission for the Username, make sure that Full control has check on Allow and nothing is checked on Deny.

When full control was selected, everything else under Allow will automatically be checked

4. Click Apply then OK
5. Refresh the Folder then try deleting the file(s) again. If it still won't work, just restart the computer and try again.

Let me know if it works.

Thanks,
Joey
