HELP! How to delete a file that won't delete?
Posted on 2006-04-11
I have a file (with an extremely long name) that I cannot delete. I've tried the normal Windows Explorer delete, which does nothing. And I've tried DOS, which also does nothing. (I've tried both the full name and "FTG_Co~1.CLA"). I've tried rebooting. No luck. I'm not getting any "permission denied" or "file in use" messages.
When I do "DIR" in DOS, I see the file (with it's full name).
The full name of the file is:
(The file name is actually generated by a Java Virtual Machine).
I'm assuming the problem is either with the length of the name, or the "$" in the middle.
Does anyone know of a way to absolutely, positively delete a file?
