Hey guys, this problem has been hounding me for a while and have yet to find any help on it. So here's a brief history of the problem:
I used to have a WD external 2TB nas drive, I decided finally I'd rather have the drive integrated with my PC and took it apart and plopped the drive in. First problem was that it was in an unrecognizable format (I believe it was XFS or EXFAT, some linux friendly format) and had a bunch of my media on it. So I booted up Ubuntu live CD and copied all the data off of the drive to another 2TB drive, formatted and copied it back over. No problems so far. The problem is that some of the files left have illegal characters, here's an example of the file names:
When I try to delete the file I get:
"The file name you specified is not valid or too long. Specify a different file name."
I've tried a load of different ways, but have found no solutions. Anyone have any ideas? What I've tried so far is:
Command Prompt (I don't remember the method specifically I used, so if someone could walk me through this one however they think fit that would be great to try again)
Using Ubuntu (It put the folders into a hidden trash folder, but couldn't permanently wipe off the drive for some reason)
And some random online programs with no success
Thanks for any help you guys can offer. Another thing that would help is if anyone knows of a program to scan a directory for illegal file names and generate a list of them so I can go about nuking/fixing them after I've figured out a way to do so.
