I have a bunch of empty folders that IE 6.0 refuses to delete. I have full permission to access this FTP account:
-----------------------------
An error occured deleting the file or foler on the FTP server. Make sure you have permission to access the foler.

Details:
550: Folder Name The directory is not empty.
-----------------------------

The folder is empty. Im viewing hidden files. What can I do??

OK, IE was what I was going to suggest you try.
Did ya try renaming the folder, then deleting it?
How did you try deleting it? right click or the delete button or both?

I tried using cute FTP, i tried renaming, i tried deleting both ways.!! There is one pattern I noticed:

I am able to creat new directories, then delete them. Here's what goes rong:


I try to delete a folder with acual files in it. It tells me i can't. I delete those then when i try to delete the folder again it says it is not empty! Once this happens, all the other folers refuse to delete in the same directory. Any ideas at all??
