    I used to be able (with Fetch on Mac OS 8.x) to remove directories very easily, regardless of what they contained. Now, I cannot remove directories at all. I get "Server file error: [name of subdirectory]: Directory not empty," despite that subdirectory being empty. I would like to be able to delete a parent directory not no regard for its contents.

    Okay, cut-and-paste rendered my usual , fluent english something more like pidgeon. However, I still really need help removing directories.

    Thanks!

    I would check "Send LIST -al to UNIX servers" from the "Obscure Options" pop-up menu in the Misc. section of Fetch Preferences. If that doesn't do the trick could you post the contents of the Fetch Transcript window after you get the error?

    Thanks,
