Recently I faced the same problem and I was wondering if you are still
unable to delete the folder. I finally succeeded in deleting the
folders by
opening a command prompt, then used the dir /x command to get the 8.3
name of
the directory and then used the rd command with the 8.3 name of the
undeletable folder and it vanished!

hour until I stumbled upon this answer... worked like a charm!
