I have a folder on my Windows Server 2003 box that for some reason keeps
repeating itself. For example, the folder "c:\myfiles\archives" has repeated
itself as
" c:\myfiles\archives\archives2\archives2\archives2\archives2\ archives2\archives2\archives2\archives2\archives2\archives2\ archives2 ".
There is nothing showing in the "archives2" folders but it will not allow me
to delete any of the folders in the entire hierarchy. Also, when I click on
the last folder in the structure, it gives me the error message "Can't access
this folder. Path is too long". Any ideas about this?

Thanks,
Greg

Your file structure is corrupted. Chkdsk.exe might be able to fix it.
