    I receive the error "directory name is invalid" when trying to delete a
    specific empty-folder in Win2Kpro (no hidden files shown). I am the folder's
    owner and can also rename it. Any ideas on how to solve this problem would
    be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Pete Goss

    Although this is for XP, the principal is the same.
