- Subject: deleting a file ending with a dot
tar has created a file ending with a dot, and now I can't delete it
(I've tried rm, del in cmd, explorer, far, unlink call with and without
-mno-cygwin). What would you suggest before I search an 8-GB volume for
the directory entry with a disk editor? I would appreciate any help
(pointers to NTFS directory structure description also welcome).
Scandisk didn't report any problems.
Thanks in advance,
