    Are you trying to delete a folder or files? For me I have to delete all the files in the folder, then the folder itself.

    I was having the same problem - it turned out to be hidden files. If you're using Fugu, go to SFTP > Show Hidden Files; you'll probably see the DS_Store file and possibly some others. Once you delete *all* the files in the directory, you should be able to delete the directory.

    Good luck!

    Just tried the "hidden files" hint and worked perfectly! Thanks! Man that was driving me nuts...
