comment How to delete directories with path/names too long for normal delete
@JulianKnight: So yes, "mitigate" would probably be a better description -- it doesn't solve the problem, but it will hopefully make it a less common problem on Windows than it is today.

@JulianKnight - Yep, a day or two ago somebody told me that npm3 should help to alleviate these problems by preventing deeply nested dependency folder structures.

@JulianKnight: Yeah, this approach didn't end working for me 100% of the time, either. I just wanted to mention it because it was among the more straightforward processes, and it at least worked part of the time. The only thing I've found that that has worked 100% of the time is the Powershell + NTFSSecurity module script approach, which I described below. IIRC rimraf failed when called, which is how I got into this mess in the first place. See this Node.js thread for details: github.com/nodejs/node-v0.x-archive/issues/…
