    Win2k Server folder chug

    a student at my school created about 15 folders inside eachother on the server and the final folder seems to be non-existant/existant. When right clicked, and properties is chosen, an error comes up, something like "no properties" or something, and when delete is chosen nothing happens. When the deepest folder is selected, it goes unselected, when double clicked, nothing happens. Ive tried everything, command-prompt, safe-mode, check disk. Im good with windows, but im just stumped on this one. Any suggestions???

    Have you tryed going into SafeMode and removing it from the console?

    Try backing up everything in the folder its in, delete the whole folder its in, recreate that folder and unback everything into it...depending on what folder its in.

    nothing is in the folder, its just ~20 folders inside of eachother, and when i go to the last one it cant be deleted/opened/selected. Its on one of the HardDrives in the scsi array of 4 80gb hd, its used to store students class work, for example the partition is E: the folder is \Students then the teacher name \wittel then the students user name, \catheym inside of E:\students\wittel\catheym there are ~20 folders, it looks something like E:\students\wittel\catheym\matt\matt\matt\matt\mat t\matt\matt\matt\matt\matt\matt\matt\matt\matt\mat t\matt\matt\matt\matt\matt\matt etc.... i go as deep as i can, and then theres another folder, but it cant be selected/deleted/opened/no properties...so u cant delete above that folder either cause it says the folders not empty....its just totaly screwed up. someone help me out before i use my connections with microsoft and submit this bug.

    Sorry, I guess saying you "tried safe-mode" is a little confusing. What exactly did you do in there? You can do a lot of things in safe-mode. I was just wondering if you attempted to delete the files from there.

    heres a thought, disable his ability to make folders and ignore the ones u can't remove.
