i tried installing the latest versiopn 3.0 on 17th may 2017 on a windoes 7 PC. Fails installation with error below C:\Windows\System32\FilExileExt.dll Unable to register the DLL/OCX: RegSvr32 failed with exit code 0x3. Click Retry to try again, Ignore to proceed anyway (not recommended), or Abort to cancel installation. i ignored the error and continued. it did not work either for removing the stubborn files from my iomega ix2 NAS Drive. tried portable editions ..they also did not delete the bad files. Tried version 2.0 No Error and gives a message successfully deleted but files still exists on the NAS. Not sure but this is buggy with deleting remote files and may be able to delete local files properly.
Simply doen's work. It rises an exception when trying to delete a file (Windows 10) and doesn't delete it
Love to use Long path Tool, It is very efficient one.
Tried a bunch of other techniques to get rid of a stubborn folder. None worked, but this did! Very pleased. Many Thanks! I should add this was Win 7 64-bit, on a second physical SSD drive, not the C: drive.
Love it. Easy to use. Gets the job done! Saved me more than once.
