    Hello all,
    I have a massive amount of data to delete from my remote server and WS_FTPLE
    won't delete a directory unless it's empty. Is this a restriction of the
    server or a lack of functionality in my FTP client?
    Either way, can anyone suggest a free FTP client that will happily delete
    non empty directories or will automatically go and empty them of files (and
    any child directories) within?

    Thanks in advance,

    Paul

    if you have windows xp do it in the internet explorer i.e.

    ftp.somewere.com

    right-click and select login as
    login with your given information
    then you can delete directories and files as you wish!
