Can´t delete Premiere "Production" Folders

Hello,

i´m running Premiere Pro Version 12.3.1 on a PC and I´m just starting to use the "Productions" workflow but I see myself already confronted with a problem, that I don´t know how to fix:

I can´t delete "folders" created by Premiere in "Productions".
Though I am able to delete the projects (within a folder) that I put in the trash folder first.
(Right-clicking on the trash in the main Production panel list and then choosing Reveal in Finder/Explorer and than deleting)
But I can´t delete the folders this way. My Exlorer says "This Element isn´t located here anymore. Check the location of that Element and try again".
That makes it impossible to delete Premiere "Production"-Files because that error-message continues to pop up.

Is there a proper way of deleting the folders? Or is this some kind of a bug? Or am I doing something wrong?


Maybe someone knows how to handle this 🙂

I have routinely right-clicked folders in a production, "move to trash", then "reveal in Explorer", deleted, they're gone.

 

Of course, I don't see them in the Production after they've moved to the trash.

Delete Production folders within Premiere.

 

I hope you have the Productions reference manual which covers this sort of thing ... found in a download link near the top of this page of Productions information.

Using Productions in Premiere Pro

Hey Neil, thank you for your response.

Yes, I read through that introduction. It says:
"Emptying the trash -
Right-click on the trash in the main Production panel list and choose Reveal in Finder/Explorer.
From within Finder or Explorer delete any items you are sure you no longer need."

That works with .prproj- files but somehow doesn´t work with the folders.

"Delete Production folders within Premiere." - Is there a way to do that? Or do you mean putting them into that trash folder?
