I've had a problem with a directory entry that had a space at the end. I
don't know whether that was the only problem with it, but it wouldn't let
me delete it -- not with Explorer, not with the command line using quotes.
Nor would it let me rename it; no access allowed using the long name it
had.

But I could delete it using the 8.3 name that's associated with every LFN
entry. Try "dir /x" to see the short names (or "dir /a /x" to see the short
names of all entries, including system and hidden files). Sometimes this
helps.
