I guess some of them (or their sub-folders/files) have permission restrictions which you may need to take care of BEFORE deleting via FTP.

I wonder if they contain any invisible files that aren’t allowing you to delete.
Do you know how to Telnet or SSH into your directories?

“Do you know how to Telnet or SSH into your directories?”

well no… dont know that

If you can get in that way, you can list the hidden files and there is a command switch with delete that deletes all files in subdirectories.

Here is a link on how to use it:

Good luck! :wink:

Here are details relating to the command I referred to.

Deleting Directories (rmdir)

The rmdir command allows you to delete directories, just as you have done with files. To delete a directory, type in rmdir dirname and hit return (assuming the directory is called dirname). As with rm and cd, you can provide a full pathname to the file. Note that you cannot delete a directory unless it is empty with this command, although you can do it with a variation of the rm command. Simply type rm -r dirname instead. Note that both of these actions will delete the directory, and cannot be undone.
