This question has been asked, but unfortunately none of the suggestions worked.
Here is the situation--the file is synced to a local folder on my computer in my /users folder from Google Drive. It is a pdf (looks like a saved receipt from somewhere). The name is >255 characters which throws Windows off.
What the file will not do
- show properties
Actually I have not gotten the file to provide any sort of response besides the same error at all.
dir /x--no shortname is listed, it simply repeats the regular name.
- Using FileBoss, Explorer++, 7zip
rmdir /S /Q <dir>doesn't really work since it is in my user folder...
If anyone has an idea to try, I'd be open to it.
Edit--In this instance the file name itself is greater than 255 characters. Changing the directories it is nested in will not affect the problem since there is no issue with the file path. (This problem in itself eliminates many other solutions).
