View Full Version : File Deletion Error

22-11-2007, 10:17 AM
Hi there,

I recently created a backup of my Firefox settings folder on my external hard drive (was experimenting with Ubuntu and wanted bookmarks etc all the same). Anyway, went to delete it and get the following error;

Error deleting folder.
Cannot delete
: The filename, directory name or volume label syntax is incorrect.

I went into the folder and individually deleted the files, except for one that gave a slightly different error message. The file name is a 'box' symbol- like something out of windings or similar. It says it is 0 bytes on disk (in properties).

How do i go about deleting this file. Help is much appreciated.

Run chkdsk on it.
