what error you are getting?

Couple of things, i would do to fix this.

  1. I will check recycle bin(both level) and make sure no refrecne to library exist here
  2. [i would also try to take the ownership of the all checked out documents in that library] or this1.
  3. also make sure content approval is turned off
  4. you have full control on Library or folders?
  • i have full control on both library and folders. th eerror receive is in title: the folder is restricted from being deleted – user1898765 May 10 '14 at 10:21
