I try to delete a folder and get this error message. I cannot view
the folder through DOS. Anyone know any way to delete this folder?

Hi, Kyle.

HOW are you trying to view this? In detail, please. "I cannot" doesn't
tell us much.

Are you opening a "DOS" (emulator) window? With Cmd.exe or with Command.com
or by clicking Command Prompt - or some other way? Are you using the Dir
command? With what switches? Have you dealt with any Attributes (Hidden,
System)?
