I'm repairing a system for a friend with a FAT filesystem

There is a directory cycle, so that for example:

    rm -rf directory_with_cycle

doesn't work, because rm encounters and endless succession
of subdirectories.

The directory content is not important, however I'd be
interested in knowing some FAT references that could help
me to eliminate the loop and remove the directory.


I would run the fsck.vfat ( dosfstools package) on the unmounted partition.
