Recently my FTP server was hacked and now I have directory with no name and subdirectories under it.

F:\ \tagged \ for fresh\scan by    \           aespinoz\filled by         \              santos29

This is how it looks in my address bar when I view the directory.  How do I get rid of this?

Try:

In the command prompt, goto the F: drive. Do DIR /X, this will list the files and directories in the root directory, with an extra column for special folders, ie, those who don't fit the 8.3 convention or have special characters.

You can hopefully use this new column (it is infact its alternative name) to delete the directory.

e.g.

>f:
>dir /x

03/05/02  13:49         <DIR>                          NTReskit
15/04/02  16:11         <DIR>          NTRESK~1        NTResKit2k

>del NTRESK~1

^^^ that will delete the NTResKit2k directory (ignoring the fact its a direcory and so the command wont work :) )

Whats the message?

I suspect you might have to 'cd' down to the lowest level and 'rmdir' each one in turn.
