it is possible that the file may contain a hidden character or special
character that renders what appears to be a space. . While I have not
encountered this on an NTFS mounted file system, one way might be is to
run emacs as root, and use dired to list, then delete the directory. Or
possibly the Gnome or KDE file manager.

Another possible way in the command line is to key on a pattern:
'rm *Episode*.avi' or possibly 'rm *24*.avi'
