Inadvertently, I have created a folder name with a space in the name. (Ubuntu 12.04 LTS updated).
I now wish to remove that folder and its contents (permissions for asministrator only), but rm does now recognise the "xxxxx yyyyy" folder name. It goes into cyber confiusion attempting to find the folder with the part of the name before the space.
So I thought, cleverly, that I would simply rename the folder with no space. But when executing the command line instruction to do that, it once again goes off into cyber fairyland looking for the folder with the name of the part before the space.
Can't rename; can't remove. Looks like I am stuck with that waste of disk space forever. Unless .....
