After installing Cygwin on Windows 7 and realising I'm better of with using Linux on a different partition, I wanted to uninstall it. However, Cygwin has no uninstaller so I was left with the option of deleting the whole folder it was installed in - which I did.
The problem is that a single file remained, in the whole directory tree, named
I know Windows isn't supposed to allow files with names ending in
., but this one obviously got through, and I cannot delete it. When trying to do that, I get an "Item Not Found" -
This is no longer located in C:\cygwin\usr\share\texmf-dist\doc\latex\hausarbeit-jura. Verify the item's location and try again.
Any ideas on how to get rid of it ?
Some extra info that might help:
When viewing the properties of the file (Right-click, Properties), Windows tells me that it has 0 bytes.
However, when viewing it in the explorer window, and clicking on it, the windows status bar thing tells me it has 517 bytes.
