For some awkward reason a Java program called Jdownloader created a folder called C:\some_path inside the C: drive.

It's something like c:\some_folder\c:\some_path.

It's something that can't be done manually, so Windows doesn't recognize c:\some_path as a folder.

I know if I format the drive I can get rid of it. But I don't want to do it.

I wonder if there's any other way to solve this.

Thanks

If what windwakr says doesn't help, try booting an Ubuntu and erase from there.

Jdownloader is pretty bloatish, I never use it without a Sandbox on a temporary (RAM) drive.

From a command prompt
- use wildcards
- use the short 8.3 name ('dir /x' will show them)
- prepend '\\.\' to the full name

What error message do you get? Is it 'file not found' or 'access denied'?

Maybe there's something wrong with the filesystem. Try a chkdsk /f.
