Many people have asked me the same question so thought I will share this here so that others can also benefit.

If you install DesignStudio in T24 (In Windows) and due to some reason have to delete the full folder and recreate a New one people sometimes face the issue where the full folder does not get Deleted as there are some files have very big Filenames. These directories can be deleted by doing the following.

Step 1 : Create a directory in C:\>mkdir LongFileDir
Step 2 : Suppose C:\DesignStudio is the directory that contains the files which you are NOT able to delete simply do the following
Step 3 : Windows + R command to launch Run command. ( Does NOT require Administrator Access)
Step 4 : From C:\> run the robocopy command
C:\>robocopy C:\LongFileDir C:\DesignStudio /purge , this command will print some logs and attempt to copy
all the files and sub directory of C:\DesignStudio folder into C:\LongFileDir
Although nothing would have copied the Folder would have become empty.
Now run the command to remove both the directories
Step 5 : C:\>rmdir LongFilesDir from command line.
Step 6: C:\>rmdir C:\DesignStudio

That's it !!!!!

Have a great day !
