    Hey guys,



    I have a very awkward problem. My recycle bin contains one file with an extremely long name. I keep getting the error message: Recycle bin corrupted. Emptying the recycle bin does not delete this one file. Also I already tried to go into the (hidden) recycle bin directory and erase this file manually. I get the error: File name would be too long for destination folder (Meanwhile the recycle bin is turned off so vista should permanently delete that file). I also tried to rename the file but this is not an option as the file is in the bin.



    I am running out of ideas. Does anybody know something I could try or has experienced similar issues?



    Thanks for the help,



    Benjamin
