Post permission of files-folder and at least one of the orphaned attachment files in that folder

Windows-Server/ Linux-Server?

Thanks Frank.

Server is CentOS 7

Via cpanel File Manager I get...

Files folder - 777
Not sure how to find orphaned attachment file names, but images in Files folder have three different permissions - 600, 644, 666

OK, don't know if you can sort via cpanel file manager by permissions, but if you can, do it and change those with 600 and 644 to 666

No change - It still won't delete.
I select, click submit, page refreshes, file(s) still there. No error, no confirmation, just the same list of files.

I went back and double checked permissions and images are all 666.

Thanks for the help. Any other ideas?
