Unable to delete Content Browser folder

Frustrating issue simply trying to update assets in my Content Browser. When I right click and attempt deletion of a folder in the Content Browser I get an error message ‘Failed to load Assets’ and the folder cannot be deleted.

I tried closing the editor, deleting the Saved, Intermediate and DerivedDataCache but no difference!

Happens to me sometimes. The problem is simple: there’s something in the folder but not shown in the content browser. Try:

  1. Right click on folder → Fix up redirectors (happens when you move things to different folders)
  2. If that doesn’t work, then I just delete the assets in the folder through the explorer (happens when I delete something in the content browser, but it doesn’t delete it off disk).
