I wish to delete some .html and .master files and im using Sharepoint Designer. However I have this error:

Server error: this file may not be moved, deleted, renamed or otherwise edited.

or

Server error: this item cannot be deleted because it is still referenced by other pages.

enter image description here

I tried:

I'm also using "Seattle" and the files bellow are copies from "Seattle":

  • test.html
  • startermaster_copy(2).html
  • startermaster_copy(1).html
  • starter.html

I'm out of options.

Try deleting the same from the browser. Refer below url to go to master page gallery:

  • Did you get any error when you tried to delete using browser? – Sohail Shaikh Oct 22 '18 at 17:04
  • Error when deleting "The server has encountered the following error(s): startermaster.html This file may not be moved, deleted, renamed, or otherwise edited." or "The server has encountered the following error(s): test.master This item cannot be deleted because it is still referenced by other pages." – Saul Kevin Silva Oct 22 '18 at 17:16
  • @SaulKevinSilva So you deleted all the html files one by one and so it resolved? – Sohail Shaikh Oct 22 '18 at 17:18
  • No sorry, I explained It wrong. What I was trying to say is that I can't delete html files with your solutions via web. – Saul Kevin Silva Oct 22 '18 at 17:29
