    I cannot delete any folder (with or without folder target) in DFS namespace
    structure on Windows 2008 server. It is domain type of namespace. The error
    message is "The folder cannot be deleted. Cannot complete this function."
    This error apears if I want add folder target too. The domain is Windows 2008
    The domain was upgraded from windows 2000 domain and DFS was first
    implemeted on windows 2008 server. I have three namaspace servers.

    Thank you for help

    Thank you Ed, I noticed some day ago that my forest level was windows 2000
    and I raised this to 2008 level.
    Now I can delete DFS folders.

    But is stolen version of Path Too Long Utility from You will not receive support or software update there, so you'd better go to the original version provider.
