I have an issue where an IDE has spawned near infinitely nested "Library" folders. windows cannot delete them, windows cannot find them, and the parent file is getting large enough to slow down my machine. I ran a remdir on the parent file in cmd, and this is what I get... any thoughts?

 

(see attached image and note the scroll bar in the command prompt window)

rename a couple of the base folders from library to 1 and try rmdir command again

 

OR create blank library folder and use robocopy /mir to overwrite a blank library folder onto full one

Robocopy did the trick, although it took 45 minutes to do so.
