    Multiple folders in a folder

    I have got a few students who have made multiple copies of their home folders in their home folders.. going so deep that I have to rename folders to a single character so that I can move deeper down the tree!

    Anyone have a script or a tip to help - I think I need to just compact all the folders in a folder to a single character so that I can delete the lot?

    Does that make sense to anyone!

    Thanks

    Map a network drive to the folder as deep as you can get. You will be able to browse even further into the folders then to delete them.

    You cannot delete a file or a folder on an NTFS file system volume
