Problem:

Two folders on a file server I administer had been created with a space at the end of the folder name.

 

If I tried to delete these folders I got the message “Could not find the item”

 

If I tried to view the security I got the message “The requested security information is either unavailable or can’t be displayed”

 

The requested security information is either unavailable or can't be displayed

Solution:

I found is was possible to delete the folders via a CMD prompt using the command;

 

rd “\\?\C:\path to bad sub dir\bad dir “
