    I'm trying to delete some files from the server but I get the error message:
    Server file error: "file name": No such file or directory

    Here is the transcript:

    That's very weird -- the file is in the file list, but the server says it isn't there. Are you running Fetch 4.0.3? Can you rename the file (say, to a name without any spaces)?

    Thanks,

    Yes I'm running version 4.0.3, and when I try to rename those files I get the same error message. Basically anything I do with those files gives me that message.

    I would ask the server administrator to delete the files for you. My guess is that there's a special invisible character in the file name and that makes it impossible for an FTP client like Fetch to refer to the file.

    Thanks,
