    A while back, I made some folders Read-Only, that way important stuffs won't be lost. But somehow now I can't remove the folder, what should I do?

    Done that, but the read-only attribute won't detach, no matter what I do, I wouldn't post this if it's that easy for me lol

    Pisses me off, not working.

    Apparently my folder's name is "Alt+01952", a null character, but is not space character, useful for me but it looks like command prompt dislikes that character, no effect whatsoever, so I tried using the erase command, turns out it didn't erase that invisible folder, it removes evrything but the troublesome folder.

    So I decided to remove the videos and pictures folder and create a new folder with the same name, ictures and Videos, I lost my Videos (I backed up my pictures after my videos lost thanks to command prompt and my stupidity) and it wokrs wonders, no invisible folder in sight.

    Actually, I think the problem lies in the folder's name, should I name it properly, this won't happen :sigh:

    This happened to me as well(files had names that Windows couldn't display that I created on my computer) and I ended up just doing it at home. Grab this (It is Damn Small Linux but it comes with qemu setup). Delete the files using DSL, it should work.
