DELTREE Command Does Not Remove DIR000<x> Directory (126572)
The information in this article applies to:
• Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 6.22
This article was previously published under Q126572
The MS-DOS DELTREE command does not remove directories named DIR000<x>
where x is an integer number. For example, the DELTREE command does not
remove a directory called DIR0001.
You must use a third-party disk utility to remove DIR000<x> directories.
Microsoft is researching this problem and will post new information here in
the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
Microsoft ScanDisk creates DIR000<x> directories when it finds directory
structures that are damaged beyond repair. All the files in these
directories have read-only and hidden attributes. The MS-DOS ATTRIB
command does not change the attributes on these files.
