    I assume you mean you cannot Delete it

    If you use Find Any File.app to find the file, it will show you various ways to access the file including showing the full path.

    If you hold down the option key when using FAF, it will give you root privilege access that should allow you to delete the file.

    Just wanted to mention that the app "EasyFind" does the same thing, is free, and in my opinion does a better job at finding things than Find Any File.

    EasyFind on the Mac App Store

    The above URL will take you to the Mac App Store.

    This is one of the positives of using an Apple computer. The need for doing a "nuke & pave" is not needed nearly as often. And as I'm sure you've experienced...reinstalling the macOS is MUCH less of a hassle...and takes a lot less time!

    It certainly is, i have installed widows and it goes wrong at first boot up. I think all windows users are just unpaid beta testers!!

    Hmmm...??? Are Apple OS users any different these days???

    I don't think so, they just do things differently.
