How do I deal with locked, corrupt files and long filenames

Q: How do I deal with locked, corrupt files and long filenames?

A: A neat small program called Unlocker can solve most of these issues. What's stupid is that in Windows, it is possible to create a file with a filename that is so long that Windows cannot delete (that's AFTER just allowing you to create that file). Those too-long files are very hard to deal with. You will have to try to move them to another directory first. If not, you will need special software like Unlocker to delete it. As far as locked files go, Unlocker not only tells you what exact program is using the file, but can unlock the file. This utility is a must-have for Windows users.
