This tool saved my disk directory!!!!
Somehow, something I installed years ago, had a bug in it's installation routine and created a directory structure with over 2,000 levels of NESTED subdrectories! Obviously this exceeded M$ filename size of 260 chars. How this was accomplished, is beyond me.
I took a leap of faith downloading and installing it. But I was rewarded with the entire tree being removed. It took the tool almost 15 minutes to finish. Well worth the wait.
Thank you SO much for creating this tool.

Yes, M$ should be ashamed. But then again, they have shown that they have no shame in so many many many other areas of customer service and technology. They've been doing this for almost 30 years, and they STILL can't get the most fundamental aspects of computer software engineering done even moderately well.

Windows 8.1: Deep Remove was a life saver! Tried Unlocker, Lockhunter, File Assassin, CMD prompts, et al- none of them worked. I've been in the computer business for 40+ years and this is one of the best tools I've ever encountered. Thanks very much.

P.S. Microsoft should be ashamed of themselves forcing customers to have to spend mucho time looking for ways to delete 'long file name' entities. Very thankful to you folks though.

Glad to have this tool. Widows 8 got a bit sticky and inconsistent / vague over folder owneship but this application did over half the job. Thank you!
