This is annoying to say the least. I would like to remove this folder and all its subfolders. I have tried everything from changing permissions to changing attributes and even trying DOS to remove the folders; no luck!!!!
Anyone have any ideas?
Hold down the <Shift> key while pressing "delete".
If that does not work, download 7-zip; 7-Zip
the file manager in the program can handle long file names.
