We've got a machine with a couple of files that have a dot in the name that are unable to be deleted. We've tried all the variations of "\\?\" found in this
article and its comments. We also tried booting into UBCD and attempting a delete that way, and chkdsk also passed with no errors. So far everything has failed.
Any attempt to delete or rename the file is met with a "cannot read from the source file or disk" message. This problem clearly stems from an improper file name but we can't figure out how to get rid of them. Any help would be appreciated.
