    [SOLVED] Unable to delete a folder with .ce-2. file ending./How to delete a directory...


    Recently today I was using 7zip to extract a zip file titled PSXFINALDOOM.CE-2.0.1.zip, but I forgot to hit backspace enough and it ended up PSXFINALDOOM.CE-2. So I am unable to delete, force delete with admin command prompt with del /f, I cannot view the security tab in properties, but it still exists in the file explorer. Any help on resolving this issue?Edit: this issue has been resolved, as deleting a directory must utilize the command in the admin command promptrd /s "\\?\C:\Documents and Settings\User\Desktop\Annoying Folder."as stated and sourced from here: https://stackoverflow.com/q

    :)

    Directory Size Utility

    First of all nice utility, Mindweaver!
    Second of all, it's so nice to see that this section ain't dead.

    I have a few questions/suggestions, maybe you'd want to see ...
    • maybe you rename Get Folder button caption to something more intuitive? Add Folder, Get Folder Size, Check Folder Size or something like that?
    • Could you add subfolder files to the right pane? (it can be a tickbox with include sub dirs)
    • maybe you also add export list to excel?
    • there's delete file button maybe you add delete folder button too?
    • and finally maybe you can add UP button for directories?

    0 byte folder cannot be deleted Problem

    I have a 0 byte folder and I can't delete it. I'm using win 7 64 bit.
    please help *Cry :cry:

    It says access denied when trying, please login as admin blah blah msgs....

    I've searched the net for hours, Trying unlocker, fileassassin, and all other 'file deleter' programs out there. tried on safe mode, tried the cmd commands, even in cmd it says access denied, tried the closing explorer.exe and doing the command. I tried changing permissions and atrributes and it says you do not have permission to view or edit this objects permission settings. I logged in as the Administrator and still no hope.

    the folder originally contained all my movies but since then i moved(using the move command) all of them someplace else(on another hdd) and I thought it was gone but the folder is still there, 0 bytes. It was shared when i deleted it and still appeared on the shared folders list but inaccessible coz it was already deleted so i 'unshared' the folder from the shared folders list. and so the problem began. the folder is still there and it is undeletable

    One surefire way to do it without deleting my files is copying all other files to another HDD and reformat it and copy it back again but my hdd is currently contains 1 tb out of 1.36 and i dont have any hdds with that free space to use.

    ALSO I CAN'T OPEN THE FOLDER it says

    Location is not available

    'directory' is not accessible.
    Access is Denied.

    i think its more of a windows glitch than a virus problem
