I'm trying to delete 2 empty sub-folders inside my shared folders (on my server) but kept running into various problems (please refer to screenshots for detail) ...
So far I have tried many ways to resolve but all failed to work...below are some steps I have tried -
a) Remove all users from the main folder's security & permn settings (so no single user can touch the files inside )
b) took ownership of the main folder & all sub-folders
c) check server's 'shared files' for locked files (there were none...!)
d) tried to delete (or rename) under command prompt using 'del', deltree, ren, etc but all failed
e) try deletion (or rename) locally at server end - also failed
I suspect there are 'hidden character' in the filename not recognised by Windows as I can 'see' it clearly at the end of the filename when it start to blink during rename/F2....but have no idea how to resolve the issue.
