There are files with a "~" (tilde) in the filename. Eg. the infamous Microsoft Office locking files
They contain user information about the user who has opened the corresponding file
. Some are old and distributed among many folders. I want to delete them.
So, what's wrong? If I find them via Everything
(doesn't matter) on my local disk c:, I can open the file or the folder normally. And the context menu (right mouse click) looks like the one on Windows Explorer.
But when I do the very same search on a network drive
I cannot open the file nor the folder. And the context menu looks poorly:
w: is being included in Everything via
Options, Indexes, Folders
and apart from that behaves normally.
