Cannot delete file
Posted on 2005-03-02
Hello there, I have a major issue trying to delete a folder (let's call it Folder X) and cannot find the solution. Folder X is on my domain controller and is saved in a path that includes long folder names (more than 8 characters and includes spaces) . When I try to delete Folder X, nothing happens - it just hangs. I cannot see the proerties for Folder X when I right-click on it from My Computer. When I try deleting the folder that Folder X is housed in, I get a error message that says "Cannot delete Folder X: Cannot find the specified file. Make sure you specifiy the correct path and filename"
I am logged on to the DC as the Administrator and I do not have the right to view the properties for Folder X nor can I delete it because the OS says that it cannot find the file. Any suggestions on how to go about deleting Folder X?
Thanks a bunch!
