If you are running DOS in a window 98, ME, 2000 or XP it is pretty good. the full file name is on the right hand side and the DOS is on the left. For example: a file in My Documents named "Some File I created in Windows.doc" would look like this in the DOS window. "C:\mydocu~1\somefi~1.doc".
The best way is to do a "dir" command. Look for the file you think it is and type the DOS version of that name.
It is going to be the first 6 charaters, without spaces, "~" and then a number. The number is for any other files with the first 6 charaters that are the same.
Hope that helped.
But if you want to delete the file...you can do it this way. Restart your computer in safe mode and delete it there. It shouldn't run in automatically in safe mode. Or you can restart off a DOS Boot disk and do it that way, too.
In the last few days i have been working on vcr recording.In the process i have erased at least a dozen *.avi files in Windows me.
Is this a joke,are you serious ?
Yes there is a Dos command.
