Vista Bug – Filename to Long

So, tonight I was cleaning up my hard drive, and windows.old folder from the Vista upgrade was sitting there, 25 GB. So I decide to delete, and it removes everything but one file. The file won’t delete because it says the path is too long. I cant rename it or move it because the path is too long. I had to open cmd prompt and CD to that directory and delete the file using the command line. What a debacle :)
