Application Data is a Junction point (a pointer to another location). The real location is

C:\Users\xxxxxxxx\AppData and not C:\Users\rrkurtz\Application Data

Open a Command Prompt.
Do a cd AppData
dir *.rcd /s

See what it comes back with. Should be a much shorter path that you can navigate to via Command Prompt or Windows Explorer to delete those files.

+1 on this...
