    I'm running Fetch 3.0.1 on Mac OS 9.2, and I cannot delete a folder from the server. Even though the folder is empty, I get a message that reads, "Server File Error 'file name': Directory not empty".
    Any ideas?

    I'd recommend getting Fetch 4.0.3 (you can download a free trial from ). If the server still says the directory is not empty try choosing "Send LIST -al to UNIX servers" from the Obscure Options menu in the Misc. section of Fetch Preferences (this is in 4.0.3).
