Please describe your environment: stand alone SAS or server; using SAS "base"/Display Manger, Enterprise Guide, SAS Studio, operating system.
Have you attempted to use operating system tools to delete the file? The error message is in a format I am not familiar with seeing from SAS. The text implies that you may be attempting to delete something not actually there, perhaps a screen had not refreshed and the icon is there but the file is already deleted. OR perhaps on a different computer (server) where there may be other issues.

thank you very much for your response.
actually i am using base SAS on win10 (without admin privilege), for both files(profile.sas7bcat and profbak.sas7bcat), I can see those in the folder(no refreshed issue) but with size as 0 kb. and i am sure there was no issue last week.
besides, i am also using the base SAS on citrix server and whose sasuser library also pointed to this same mapped drive H:\My SAS Files\9.4 , there is no issue on the citrix end.

SASUSER.PROFILE can get corrupted. Especially if you are running multiple SAS sessison from different machines.
I recommend using Operating System to rename the file and then starting SAS and letting it make a new one.
If you really are going to run multiple SAS sessions pointing SASUSER at the same place then you should run with the -RSASUSER option. This will make the SASUSER libref READONLY. So that multiple sessions can open the SASUSER.PROFILE catalog at the same time. Otherwise the first session will lock the SASUSER.PROFILE and your other sessions will not get any settings you might have saved there.
