Deleting a Folder with Error “Path not found”

Okay after using computer for 13 yrs, I encounter a problem in deleting a empty folder in my system. Interesting ..huh? Whenever I press delete button on folder it says “Folder not found”. I try to delete it from command prompt, with same result. When I try to take ownership of folder, yet again it didn’t allow me as “folder doesn’t exists” so it cannot read the permission to set or reset. So I found this method to work for me.

On Windows Command prompt simply look for ShortName of folder by

dir /x

it shows Old age Shortname [DOS Name ?]

now use regular rmdir command with shortname

rmdir <folder’s shortname> /s

And it is done.
