Owing to the unhappiness of one of our SCSI controller cards on a Windows 2000 cluster server, a fairly small number of filenames have become corrupted, with a / replacing the . between filename and extension. I cannot see these files in Windows Explorer on W2K, but I can in a command prompt window, or when using File Manager linking from an NT4 box.
It's fairly early to get rid of "Long file name/txt" by going into a Command Prompt window and doing DEL LONGFI~1 or something similar.
However, I can't delete those files which have 8.3 names (albeit corrupted!), like exchng/ini. Trying
etc does not work. Neither does the usual bodge to remove files with "reserved file names" like COM1, LPT2, etc ( as in KB120716) work
I'm tried to use the Posix RM command, but only get "D:RM.EXE not found" (that's actually where it is!). Since I've never, eve, used Posix I'm a bit sytmied...
Any bright ideas, folks? Thanks!
