Default how to delete a folder with no name??

Hi, Orhunt.

HOW are you trying to delete that folder?

In a Command Prompt window, Win7 refused to create a folder by that name,
either with the "md" command or with the "ren" command. So I opened Windows
Explorer and created a new folder named "0160" and then renamed the folder
to Alt+0160. The name appeared blank, but WE had no problems with
deleting it. I recreated/renamed a new folder to Alt+0160. In the CP
window, it appeared as a folder with a blank name and I could neither "del"
nor "rd" it using the alt+ 0160 name.

So I used the Dir command with the /x switch to reveal the SFN (Short File
Name) in a column before the LFN. The SFN was 9DEC~1, and I easily deleted
that with "rd 9dec~1".

use the Software name unlocker to delete that folder.
Install the unlocker software and then right click on the folder you
will find an unlocker icon on right click. click on it. it will ask for
an action . just give the action delete and the folder will be deleted.
