Have you tried turning off the Recycle bin on that drive?

Simply Right Click on the Recycle Bin, and select the option to not move 
files to the recycle bin and then you should be able to delete that file / 
folder just like any other.

I've used this technique when partitioning a drive on a Windows Machine and 
moving it to a Non-Windows machine. (I know I could just do it on the 
non-windows machine but why bother...) although in that case I usually use 
the Configure Drives Independently option first...

In your case I would remove it, run some housekeeping on the drive (a 
thorough scan in Scan Disk if nothing else) and then try and recreate it.
