31 May 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit
Not able to delete folder in folder infinite structure.

I was using Netbeans IDE and xampp,
It crashed when I moved a project using its function, and when I checked out the folder it had infinite folder in folder structure.
Its not possible to delete it ,
I can not open more than below . .

Folder properties says 86 folders.
I have tried to delete on deepest folder level , it shows error - "The source file names are larger that supported by file system."

I have tried using tool called unlocker, but it also failed .
I tried renaming to one character per folder , didn't worked.
Command prompt does show deleted but It does not work.
These folders does not have any files , its just 0bytes .

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit
250GB HDD .
