    Hi,

    I'm trying to delete a file from Parallels 15 Windows 10 Pro OS and every time I try to delete anything I receive the error "Can't read from source or disk".

    I rebooted Windows 10, then restarted Parallels, then rebooted my iMac, each time this did not help.

    If anyone has any suggestions this would be helpful, and appreciated.

    :)

    After installing a macOS Catalina update somehow the issue was resolved.

    Hi, I'm glad to know the issue was resolved after installing macOS Catalina. However, you can refer to this article to remove a virtual machine https://kb.parallels.com/5029 .

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply.

    Just out of curiosity, why would I want to remove the VM?

    I had a lot of things setup on the Windows 10 VM and was looking for a solution.

    As I'm not overly experienced with VM's, is it common to have to remove them when encountering errors?
