Hi, I'm having exact the same problem with a long name file, to delete, move, rename, attribute change, etc. I deleted the file, which I received the confirmation. However, the file is still there, with zero bytes and no extension. When I try to delete, move or change the file, I get the error "Could not find this item, This is no longer located in xxx. Verify the item's location and try again."
I tryed everything: Using DOS, there's no 8.3 name format; In safe mode; chkdsk and sfc. Nothing worked.
I also tryed the tricks in http://social.answers.microsoft.com/...a08422a1<br /> "Could not find this item..." Nothing works! - Vista Help Can not delete file. Error is "Could not find this item".
I Have Windows 7 professional 64bits and NTFS.
Please, help me on this. Thank you very much.
