Deleting a folder

I am trying to delete a folder from my remote sight but I keep getting this message "social security income tax: No such file or directory". The folder is there I cannot do anything with it, I receive the same message.

Re: Deleting a folder

Please attach a full log file showing the problem.

To generate log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you may email it to me. You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile. Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have emailed the log.

Re: Deleting a folder

Does the "social security income tax" directory indeed exist on path "/public/downloadsocialsecurityincometax/social security income tax" as seen in the log? Can you enter the directory and see it's content? Can you post a log file showing that?

Re: folder delete

OK, it looks like the directory has space at the beginning.
Try going to Commands > Open Terminal and typing following command (note the two spaces between DELE and filename):
DELE  social security income tax

I tried the command and received an error "Social Security Income Tax: No such file or directory"

Re: folder delete

Possibly there's no way to manipulate the folder with your FTP server. You may need to contact the server administrator.
