i've hunted around for a solution why i can't delete some directories and somehow the explanation of hidden files always comes up which need to be made visible.
in my case i can see all files, but they aren't being deleted. i'm on a mac, tried cyberduck and filezilla. the file in question is Icon and 0 bytes in size. when i want to explicitly delete that by right-clicking it (instead of the containing folder), filezilla reports this (private data blocked out):
Status: Resolving address of mydomain.de
Status: Connecting to xx.xxx.xx.xx:21...
Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Response: 220 FTP Server ready.
Command: USER nyname
Response: 331 Password required for myname
Command: PASS ********
Response: 230 User myname logged in
Command: CWD /dirA/dirB/dirC
Response: 250 CWD command successful
Command: DELE Icon
Response: 550 Icon: No such file or directory
so filezilla displays the 0bytes file, asks to delete it, gets an ok from the server and then says it doesn't exist. which means i can't delete the three nested directories above. what to do? any advice?
