Hi everyone,

I tried all of the above and also none fixed my worries, yet I found out make a drive mapping about halfmethod into the folder framework you have to be able to delete the last half of the file heirarcy.

For example if you are getting the error trying to delete:

\NAS.Device.Company kind of.comacdefghijklm opq s uvwxyz

Then map a netoccupational drive Z: to

\NAS.Device.Company type of.comacdefghijk

This will certainly minimize the file herarch dvery own to a smaller course. Open traveler and also check out the Z: drive. It should contain a folder called L (in this example).

You must currently have the ability to delete the L and itssubfolders without an concern, thereby deleting fifty percent the folder hierarchy. After that, disconnect the z: drive and attempt to delete whatever is left commonly. Problem solved!


First try deleting them by bypassing the Recycle Bin by using SHIFT-DEL(many thanks, Michael Murphy)rather of just DEL.
