deleting “Could Not Find This Item” folder!

Very annoying bugs in windows. Happen to me twice. Restart still wont be able to delete

How to delete? Lets say the problem folder is c:\parent\the_stubborn_child

1. Open command prompt
2. change directory to that particular parent folder using cd command
cd c:\parent

3. type dir /x. this will show the dos short name
4. delete the folder with this command : rmdir <short file name>
5. feel good about it
