i was trying to delete a folder from my windows computer. this folder was created by git
the error is similar to this
there were some suggestion i found on the web, most of which said i have to install 7zip.
in the past, i installed it but it did not work. so i didnt want to install it again on my PC
i found the solution.
open the command prompt. i am using windows powershell.
install rimraf if you have not install it on your machine yet. use this command to install
npm install -g rimraf
once you have installed rimraf, you can use execute the command to delete whatever directory or folder you want to delete.
rimraf [folder name]
this is the error i was getting:
Windows Delete The Specified Path, File Name, Or Both Are Too Long
The term 'rimraf' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.
