#3162 closed Bug report

Can't delete a remote directory

I believe the problems in viewing a file beginning with a period have been reported elsewhere. I couldn't find these reports, but I remember seeing them, so pardon me if this is a dup.

If I try to delete a remote directory containing a file whose name starts with a period (.htaccess, in this case), the directory is not deleted and it displays as being empty.

The FTP server is ProFTPD 1.3.0a Server (ProFTPD) and appears to be able to list files that start with a period (if I use the plain old FTP command and then do ls -a.

FileZilla version is 3.0.0-beta10 running on Windows XP.

Have you tried to enable "View hidden files"?

Ooops! When did that get sneaked in? Sorry--close this out. I tested it and it deleted the folders fine once the View hidden files switch was enabled.
