    Hi

    I'm doing some work on a site that was designed by my predecessor and for ease of testing changes uploaded it to my web space.

    When I came to delete this test area, I find none of the directories will delete and I get the error message -
    "Server File Error:_vti_cnf:Directory not empty"

    I can't see any files there, I've deleted everything else - any idea how to exorcise these ghosts?

    Thanks

    Dave

    Some UNIX servers do not list file namess beginning with a period unless Fetch uses a non-standard command. Running this AppleScript tells Fetch to use that command:

    tell application "Fetch 4.0.1"
    set use LIST minus al to true
    end tell

    Let me know if that does not do the trick,
