hi
whenever i want to delete something in any software i have seen this message and the file cant be deleted.
i cant even use softwares like zapya or software data cable that both use "Tethering or Hotspot" for transferring data.
anybody knows how to solve this?

Same problem here, but I'm able to remove any file with Root Explorer. Try it, it might work for you.

You need to be root for having writing permissions on the erternal SDCard.
But that's how it supposed to work with Android 4.4.2, google removed this permission...

Unmount and then use a card reader on PC? Not sure if you're trying to delete from a inaccessible partition.

Use file commander
Use the stock app file commander. starting from kitkat, any 3rd party file explorer/manager will not have permission to write on sdcard. only stock system app like the file commander have write access to sdcard

Right, also you can just connect your phone in USB in MSC (mass storage) mode and remove yourself what you don't want anymore, it's what i actually do.
