Could not delete directory (error 12003)

Post by amin »

How come FtpVC fails to completely delete a directory? It removes all the files but fails to delete the directory. I know I can get in with a ftp program such as filezilla and delete the folder manually but it would be nice if I don't have to use two tools to complete one task! This is the error I am getting:

Could not delete directory [directory name here]: 550 [directory name here]: The directory is not empty. (error 12003)

FtpVC does indeed delete all files and subdirectories before attempting to delete the directory itself. My guess is that one of files/subdirectories wasn't deleted due to an error.

When I look inside the folder with FileZilla, I see an empty .ftpvc subfolder inside. The subfolder does not show up in FtpVC. How come FtpVC cannot delete this empty subfolder?

It's impossible to tell without a detailed log. Please use the logging settings and send us the log when this issue occurs.
