Can't delete files from FTP (20 posts)

    I have uploaded several files for a co-worker working remotely. She has downloaded what she needs from the ftp site (the ones we can't delete can't be downloaded either), but now neither of us is able to delete some of the files. The error message we get is "Fetch could not delete "FileName" because the FTP server says that the requested item was not a folder or could not be accessed. If you entered a folder name or URL, check that it is correct. Server responded "FileName": The system cannot find the file specified"

    It's just a file, not a folder, so I'm assuming the sever can't find it. What to do?

    Hi,

    Do the names of the files you're having problems deleting contain spaces, quotes, or other characters that aren't letters?

    Some FTP servers will let you upload file whose names contain characters they can't really deal with - such as spaces or quotes - and then won't let you delete them.

    If this appears to be the case here, the only solution is to contact the folks who run the server and ask them to delete the files for you.

    If that doesn't appear to be the problem, let us know and we'll investigate further.

    Thanks,

    I don't think the issue is the file name mainly because there were copies of this file in other folders that we were able to delete. I tested some other files with spaces and other odd characters and had no problem downloading and deleting them

    Hi,

    Okay, we'd like to see a transcript of an attempt to delete one of the problem files. Please do the following:

    * Quit Fetch.
    * Open Fetch again.
    * Connect to your server.
    * Try to delete one of the problem files.
    * After you get the error, choose Fetch Transcript from the Window menu, copy the entire contents of the transcript window, and paste them into a reply to this message.

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    Thanks for the transcript.

    I suspect the period at the end of the filename might be causing the problem - do the other problem files end in a period?

    Regardless, something about that file (and probably the others) is confusing the server - Fetch is sending the proper commands, but the server is reporting a problem when it tries to execute them.

    I'm afraid you'll have to talk to the people who run the server and have them delete the files for you, and maybe they can tell why the server is unhappy with those files.

    Please let us know if you have further questions.

    Thanks,

    Scott McGuire

    Hi,

    I'm having the same problem as the original poster. It looks like its linked to trying to delete too many files in one go.

    So, I'll select a directory or multiple files to delete, it will start its work and then stop with that error after deleting some of the files. If I then select the problematic file on its own or as part of a new batch, it will delete it, so it doesn't seem to be linked to the filename.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Mike.

    Hi Mike,

    We'd like some more information to help investigate the problem.

    We'd like to see a transcript that includes both a failed attempt to delete a file while deleting a folder, and then the successful deletion of the file when you try to delete it individually.

    The next time you try to delete a directory (or multiple files) and get an error message because a file couldn't be deleted, immediately go try to delete the problem file individually.

    Then choose Fetch Transcript from the Window menu, copy the entire contents of the transcript window, and paste them into a reply to this message.

    We'll take a look and try to figure out what's going on.

    Thanks,

    Scott McGuire

    Scott, if you are still there four years later, how did this all work out in 2008. We are having the same problem (it seems related to our new iMacs and 10.7.4. We can no longer delete files or folders except sporadically, i.e. after refresh one file can be deleted and then no more, and refresh again has no effect.

    Here is the transcript of the attempt:

    Hi Robin,

    Thanks for posting the transcript. Unfortunately the server is not offering much explanation for why it won't delete those folders. I would recommend contacting the server administrators, to task them to delete those folders, since apparently it can't be done via FTP.

    Thanks,

    Jim Matthews

    Jim -- Thanks very much for the reply to a transcript arriving without explanation. My introductory note go deleted at send. I will contact the server folks and get them deleted that way. Thanks again for the quick response. RL

    Hi guys,

    If you have problem in FTP server while uploading file (error 550 permission denied) so run the following commands below.
    I am assuming your files you have stored in /vat/ftp/upload directory.
    just copy the file to the /root/Desktop

    1. /root/Desktop # cd /var/ftp/upload

    2. copy here the file you want to upload

    3. chown ftp:ftp 'file name'

    4. chmod 666 'file name'

    5. then you try to download the file it will download easily ..

    Jim, I am having the same issue. I guessing from the looks of your reply it is the file name and I will need to contact my ftp server as well? Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi Mary,

    It looks like "Pinstrup-Anderson story.sitx" isn't the actual name of the file. It could be that the file name has a leading space character, which isn't shown. Here's one thing you could try:

    1) Hold down the Shift key and click the Delete icon
    2) You'll be prompted to enter the name of the item to delete; enter " Pinstrup-Anderson story.sitx" (without the quotes, but with the leading space character).
    3) Click OK

    Does that work? If not, let me know and I'll suggest another approach.

    Thanks,

    It did not work. I got the same message.

    OK, the next thing I'd try is:

    1) Choose "Send FTP Commands…" from the Remote menu
    2) In the "Other:" field, enter:

    SITE DIRSTYLE

    and click the "Send Commands" button
    3) Select the Pinstrup-Anderson story.sitx file in the file list and click the Delete button

    Does that work?

    I apologize after I got that message I logged off and logged back in so the previous post did work. I didn't realize that until I just went to try this second way. Thank you so much for your help, I really appreciate it!
