    I am trying to clean up some files and the server shows no files in the directory but won't delete it through Fetch. It says Server File Error:Directory not empty. What's up with that?

    One possibility is that the server is not showing Fetch all the files (which makes it difficult for Fetch to delete them!). If it's a UNIX server I'd recommend choosing "Send LIST -al to UNIX Servers" from the Obscure Options pop-up menu in the Misc. section of Preferences. Otherwise you may have to ask the server administrator for help.
