Fast Copy, new to me, but it helped.

Today I was trying to delete some old video project folders.
I had one folder that had dozens of files created by Adobe Premiere Elements that I don't need to keep anymore.

The thing was that every time I tried to delete them I got a message saying that the file names were too long to process.

I tried a bunch of ways of doing it like the file deleter in SuperAntiSpyware, and from the command window.

Finally I looked online and found a reference to Fast Copy 3.11.

I downloaded it, it's standalone (it doesn't need to be installed) and directed it to the folder.
Then I selected delete all, and zap, it was instantaneous the folder was gone.

Nice to know, I've resorted to logging into Ubuntu to get rid of some stuff that Windows didn't want me to remove.
