Filename too long - unable to delete file
Posted on 2002-07-21
Recently I downloaded a few .mpg files through KaZaa, when i tried to open them, windows media player opened up a webpage instead. When i then tried to delete them by clicking on the filename and pressing Delete, nothing happens.
I checked the filename and it seems like the filename is extremely long and it is disguised to be short. It goes like "abc.mpg fgf sfgsfd fdsg.mpg" -- notice the tons of spaces in the filename.
I tried to delete the file in Command Prompt and got a "The filename or extension is too long" error.
Can anyone tell me how to handle such files? Thanks
