[Resolved] cannot delete folder because of a file that doesn't exist
I have been searching far and wide on the web for a solution, with no luck. So I figured it was time to bring out the big guns and ask you guys.
I am trying to delete a folder, but cannot because of a file which used to reside within it. The file was an email called:
and probably caused a problem because of the ellipsis. So the file disappeared (I have show hidden files selected), but the folder did not. When I try to delete the folder, I get an error message saying something like: Cannot delete Long time..: Cannot find the specified file. Make sure you specify the correct path and file name.
I have tried deleting the folder in DOS, as well as del *.* within the folder. I also told the recycle bin that I didn't want files to go into the bin, but to be deleted immediately. Nothing is working for me. I tried to delete it using "Wipe Info" or whatever the Norton program is in SystemWorks.
Any other ideas?
