So the Docker saga continues. Turns out Hyper-V totally Elephant | [mastadon] ed my video drivers or something, so NetFlix and "streaming" became a contradiction in terms.

Disabled Hyper-V (a much less painful process than enabling it) and uninstalled Docker. Yet, WTF, there is still 20GB of docker crap left in the ProgramData folder.

And it can't be deleted -- the typical "Administrator access is required" but my user account is an administrator BS in Windows. Find a post on the Docker forum that basically says "yeah, deleting ProgramData\Docker is really hard, we could do a better job of it, you should use docker rmi before uninstalling Docker." Or something like that. Great, if there's a command I can run manually, why can't the uninstaller run it?

So more Googling, trying to take ownership of the file (fail) and I find this post that basically says:
  1. Boot into Safe mode. (Figuring out how to do that in W10 was yet another Google and 5 screens of restart options.)
  2. After reboot, do a "robocopy" of ProgramData\Docker to somewhere else. In other words, wave magic wand.
  3. After the robocopy finishes, you can remove the directory with rd /S /Q (include subfolders, and don't prompt for every freaking folder.)
What do you know, that worked. I've now reclaimed the 20GB that Docker for Windows failed to install.

Message to Microsoft: There are some things that the Linux world does so much better than you, you'll never catch up, so stop trying.
