|I am having trouble getting rid of a folder full of folders and file names made up of symbols off my ex-hdd.|
I had connected it to my xbox to watch some movies through it (as my laptop cant play them anymore) and then re-connected it to my laptop to find this folder.
I did download a game demo to the xbox but my ex-hdd isnt configured to the xbox so it cant save stuff to it, but i think its from that, but not entirely sure.
I have tried numerous programs (lockhunter, moveonboot, killbox) to try and delete said folder but i keep getting the same messages,
"the file name, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect"
"the file name you specified is not valid or too long"
"the file is not longer in directory. please verify location and try again" or it just cant do it.
Some of these folders are "hidden" as well but i can still see them when i open the folder.
In the properties part of the whole folder it says its a massive 47GB in size but it seems not to have taken up any space on it as the gauge at the bottom of the hd on my computers page hasnt moved
Here is a pic of what im trying to explain about the files, folders and symbols etc, just incase anyone is confused,
Any sort of help will be appreciated, but i dont want to reformat the hard drive as it has all my music and films on it, as i have no space on my laptop for them.
