  • deleting large named files

    is there any software which can be used to delet files which are more than 256 charicters long as windows doesn't reconise them and so you can't take ownership or delete them

    Use a VDM to get the shortname [dir /x]. Delete it using this name assuming it doesn't have a reserved word in the name it will delete.

    (Sometimes script kiddies will create files with reserved names if you have an unsecured FTP)
