File name too long for the recycle bin
I want to backup my computer on an external hard drive, which must be clean before the backup.
There is one folder that I cannot delete. It is a folder with many subfolders. I cannot access the files in any of these subfolders.
The message I get is:
Do want to permanently delete this folder?
The folder contains items whose names are too long for the recycle bin.
How can I get past this? Any help will be much appreciated.
