    When I try to delete a folder I get an error saying that it is not empty. But when I go into the folder it appears to be empty.

    The solution I found for Fetch 4 does not wok, because there is no "obscure options" pop-upo menu in the Misc section of preferences:

    ("Some servers do not tell Fetch about hidden files unless a special non-standard command is used. To work around this problem choose "Send LIST -al to UNIX Servers" from the Obscure Options pop-up menu in the Misc section of Preferences.")

    In Fetch 5 you want to check the "Use 'LIST -al' command to reveal hidden files" checkbox in the Miscellaneous section of Preferences.

    If that does not work please post the contents of the "Fetch Transcript" window, listed in the Window menu.
