Same problem as this question - Can't delete folder in Windows 7 - I have a folder I created in Ubuntu, and from Windows I cannot delete the folder. "Could not find this item: This is no longer located in G:\Graphics. Verify the item's location and try again."
The difference is that answers to the other question and all the other help on the net recommends using dir /x from the command line in order to get the 8.3 filename and then using rd - but my folder does not have an 8.3 filename. Here's the results of dir /x:
EDIT: Unobfuscated parent directory and the problem directory name. I see there's a space at the end... however, if I try rename without the space, Windows Explorer complains.

As you can see a number of these directories have no 8.3 file name, and when I try use rd with the long file name I get the following:
D:\UCT\Link\>rd "20110311 Data Capture Templates " The system cannot find the file specified.
Despite missing 8.3 filenames on a number of the other directories, all also created in Ubuntu, it's only this folder that has problems.
