Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Since you already deleted it I'd say delete Intermediate, Saved, Binaries like Jean mentioned, Then check to make sure that the file is not hiding in explorer still. If it is, try right clicking on your content folder in the editor and fix up redirectors. It could take awhile and if your machine is lower end and you have a large project it could potentially crash the editor, but that will eliminate the error.

If the editor crashes, try selecting your folders in chunks and fixing up redirectors that way. I haven't noticed this in versions past 4.16 but UE4 creates object redirectors to help you rename files without creating major issues in the backend. It's likely that one of these redirectors is still holding a ref to your texture. This tends to happen if you move items around in the Content Browser.

If the issue persists, post a log and I'll take a look!
