Earlier a few weeks ago I was cleaning up my virtual server. I’ve noticed that one of heavy applications claimed to uninstall correctly, but left files behind, and I was unable to delete them.
After a few attempts including Total Commander I tried to simply browse those folders and umpteenth levels deeper I got message that path is too long to navigate.
Microsoft offers knowledge base article “You cannot delete a file or a folder on an NTFS file system volume”. It tells you that very long paths are big problem in Windows OS’s and you will need third part to delete such files
Long Path Tool works perfectly in these cases
