Cannot delete file !! Help
 
Hi, akshatm.

In the Command Prompt window, use the Dir command with the /x parameter to
show you the 8.3 filename. Then delete that filename.

If it doesn't work, please post back exactly what you did and exactly
(verbatim) any error message or other response that appeared. Also, please
tell us the exact name of the problem file, including the extension - and
the 8.3 filename. Also, what does the dir /a command tell you?

I faced the same problem, I studied it for a long time and how to use
all these commands, and then I simply bought Long Path Tool at the address LongPathTool DOT com and
cleaned all unnecessary files.

'fileshredder' does not work. the application itself 'stops responding'.
there are no error messages. after i press 'delete' or 'shift+delete',
it doesnt even show a confirmation dialogue box.
a "deleting" dialogue box appears, and the progress bar doesnt move
ahead.
