    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 . .

    Code:
    E:\xampp\htdocs\P\ww\P\2\2\2\P\2\P\2\P\2\P\2\P\2\P\2\P\2\P\2\P\2\P\2\P\2\P\2\P\2\P\2\P\2\P\2\P\2\P\2\P\2\P\2\P\2\P\2\P\2\P\2\P\2\P\2\P\2\P\2\P\htdocs\P\htdocs\P\htdocs\P\htdocs\P\htdocs\P\htdocs\P\htdocs\P\htdocs\P\htdocs\P\htdocs\P\htdocs\P\htdocs\P\htdocs
    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 .

    Welcome to the forums.

    Dang, that's a new one. Tried the command line? Go to your E:\xampp\htdocs\ folder, then do a "rmdir /s P" and let us know what happens.
