I'm running OS2000. Using Drag and File, I attempted to move a folder by dragging it from the Program Files subdirectory and place it directly under the Root (c:\) directory. Something went wrong and the new directory repeatedly reproduced itself (50 or 60 times before I stopped it) Now I cannot delete the faulty directory because the string is too long. Can you advise?

Check the file size before and after. If it is not there when the computer starts up, Windows recreates it, however, at the default size without the bloat.
