Strange Symlink format - can't delete

Posted by Avo19, 07-29-2011, 09:08 PM
I've found several symlinks pointing to non-existent directories that I can't unlink. They're in the format Because of the ";" in the name, bash complains "4933c3b6: command not found". So how do I unlink/remove these?

Have you tried putting the directory names in quotes? rm -f "logs;4933c3xx"
