Cannot delete a folder and its sub-folders
Posted on 2014-02-04
One of the apps I use created a folder and then countless sub folders with the same name, and I cannot find a way to delete them.
My folders look like: C:\ParentFolder\folderToDel\folderToDel\folderToDel.......\folderToDel
From Windows Explorer, I go to C:\ParentFolder, click on the folder and hit delete, 'yes', 'Yes to All', and I get "Cannot remove folder xxx: the directory is not empty" error message.
I tried drill down to the last folder I can get to and hit delete, nothing happened.
I also tried remove them from the command prompt, but got "The system cannot find the patch specified." error.
Please help. I use Windows XP.
