    New Folder - Repeated

    Hi there,

    we have several muppets here who have started to think it's highly entertaining to create loads of 'New Folder' folders inside each other and then replicate it!

    Anyway, what's the quickest way of deleting these little buggers? (The folders, not the muppets!)

    Cheers

    if it doesn't let you delete it as its to long file name map a network drive to halfway down where it will then let you delete the files.

    I have found that if you get about 5 deep, cut them, go back to root of userarea create newfolder2 paste them in (repeat process if needed) and delete the folders that way

    rename the top folder to just one letter then you can often delete it then, sometimes need to do it to a few levels but that solves it as well so you can just bin the lot
