Hello,
I have folders on a USB stick, which I ahve tried deleting in the past. Now inside each folder is one file titled U¬U¬SWIN.4.1 - 0KB each.

When i click on delete an error message appears saying: "Cannot delete U¬U¬SWIN.4: Cannot find the specified file. Make sure you specify the correct path and file name."

I can still add files to the USB, but I it looks like it's full with folders and looks messy. It's just really annoying.

Can anyone help me please?

open the usb files in a window
point at the file you are trying to delete
right click
left click on rename
rename the file (use any name) click OK
point at the renamed file
right click on the file
left click delete
did it work?
