    Folder without Short File Name cannot be deleted


    An image extraction program created a folder on my desktop that cannot be deleted. I can move files into and out of the folder but cannot do anything to the folder itself (rename/delete/etc.) because Win 10 is unable to find it. The folder is not locked (no Malware or anything exotic bloicking access to the directory) and dir /x in the command prompt shows that it has no Short File Name (SFN, 8.3 name). The usual methods for dealing with such a situation do not work:


    Delete in safe mode: not possible, "Item not found"

    Delete via Command Prompt: not possible, rd and del commands require an SNF, which the folder doesn't have. The usual tricks to use the LFN don't work. The folder exists but Win10 doesn't find it.


    Can anyone help with this?
