Unable to delete a folder due to long path,

I wanted to delete the attached file but I got the “long path” error (attached).


How the folder can be deleted anyway?


Thank you

Best

Just a thought guys...
Couldn't you rename the folder to something less than 260 characters then delete it?
I'm sure I've done that in the past.
Maybe it won't work? I don't know!
Just spit-balling here! ;)

Many thanks Edwin. You got it.

Renaming will minimize the path. It works like a charm. Finally it is deleted
