    I am having some problems deleting some folders from ftp site. I get thiis error that tells me "Server File Error:File Name: Directory Not Empty" When I look inside the folder there is not a file in there. I can not get rid of the folder. I have tried renaming it & that did not help either. Any suggestions?

    I would try choosing "Send LIST -al to UNIX Servers" from the Obscure Options pop-up menu in the Misc. section of Preferences. Does that solve the problem?

    Thanks,

    Jim,
    Having the same problem and I've tried the "Send LIST -al to UNIX Servers" trick and it didn't work. Using OSX 10.2.8 and am not the admin. But I do need to delete the final directory that's in there. I was sucessful at deleting dozens of other files and folders. The transcript is below.

    Thanks!

    Apparently this Windows server is hiding some file or files from Fetch. Here's what I'd try:

    1) Navigate to the "dddd" directory.
    2) Choose "Send FTP Commands..." from the Remote menu.
    3) Enter the command "LIST -al" and press OK
    4) A window should appear with the result, otherwise you can look in Fetch Transcript. Hopefully the invisible file or files will be listed.
    5) If you know the name of the file to delete, choose "Delete directories and files..." from the Remote menu and type the name when you're prompted.

    Thanks,
