Curious thing...

When deleting a X:\subfolder I am getting a recyle bin error:"The folder contains items whose names are too long for the Recycle Bin."
The longest path in all the sub-subfolders is 247.
When I select that file (longest path), deleting is no problem.When I select all sub-subfolders deleting is no poblems/errors.
Then go up 1 level and delete the empty X:\subfolder.
Basically the same has been accomplished then.Out of curiosity: anyone out there who knows why I got this error in the first place?
