Filename too long

One of my users downloaded some PDF's to bid a project from a customer's web site. When the file downloaded it ended up in a directory structure so deep on the server that the filename is too long for Windows to access the file. How do I delete the file?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Have you tried accessing it through a command prompt instead?

I’ve used File assassin to delete difficult or “stuck” files from my system. It might be handy for solving your problem.
Good Luck!

    When downloading files they usually go to a default directory. How deep did this user save the PDF and why bury them so deep from the default?  If you can see the file you should be able to delete it unless it's protected. That can make it more difficult. Try File assassin as mentioned.
