Ah well, at least the mystery of the missing deltree is solved.

Just one more thought there, eLowar
You mean it's quite certain that the rd command would worked too if I'd type in the missing dir?
Just want to encode this to me brain for the future

No, I don't know that, and now we'll never know.

It may or may not have worked, my point was just that getting cygwin stuff isn't necessary just to replicate the functionality of deltree. Quite obviously there's a reason deltree doesn't exist anymore, which is that rd /s does the same thing.

I don't know what functions the Cygwin/MSYS tools use, but the Windows API functions are generally more flexible under Windows than the C standard library functions in the GNU compiler, so chances are del/rd might've worked when rm doesn't. But as I said, too late to find out now.

Shit, sorry for such an opportunity lost...

Don't worry, I'll just download the newest KG's pack (when it's out) and probably came up with something similar

Thanks again, and may this thread live and prosper as the *Ultimate Book of Knowledge (and a bit of my stupidity) in deleting files and folders on NTFS partitions!

To be honest I thought your original post may be valuable advice here to somebody who may find the thread in the future.

So here it is again.

Try doing dir /x then use the short name on the left i.e. rd <shortname> /s

Failing that try deleting by UNC path rd \\?\E:\Downloads\Torrents\Complete\Moduly\moduly\modules.p\p.o.w.

Fair enough, I edited it after seeing the program Belgararth linked above, it seems to do exactly what I suggested in a more user friendly way.
