If there is someone that can figure this out... I will be surprised...
I have a folder that I am trying to delete... and get:
If I click on the actual folder, i get:
I can create a new folder... and give it the same folder name, but it shows up like this:
With the two folders there... If I copy a file to one of them, the file appears in both folders. If I delete the folder that ends in the "." it appears to go away... but when I refresh the screen, the folder names changes back to the one ending in the "."
I've googled and found the same problems with a supposed fix - do a dir/x to get the 8.3 file name, the do the rmdir /s/q.... or do a rename first then the rmdir... problem is, this is running Server 2012 and the 8.3 name does not show up. Tried renaming/removing based on what the 8.3 format should be... but OS says it doesn't exist.
