Windows can allow a user to create a file or folder with a space at the end that it then cannot manage, to remove it you need to follow this procedure.
You’ll receive an error if you try to remove it.
Find out the 8.3 version of the folder name by opening a command prompt:
20/05/2009 10:58 DIR 7A215~1.23A 7.23A Generic Risk Assessments File
The text in red is the 8.3 filename that we are going to use.
Then remove as follows:
rd 7a215~1.23A rd /s 7a215~1.23A
The “/s” means it will recursively delete all the files and folders below (use with care.)
The above procedure basically allows you to remove a file that you could otherwise not delete via the Windows GUI, if it has a space at the end of the file/folder name.
