I'm trying to remove a directory with lots of files and folders from my private server space. I'm logging on via SFTP fine; I can access the entire directory no problems; I can even delete individual files with rm. But this would take me forever - so I would really like to just do rmdir on the highest folder that I want to remove. But when I do this, I get
Couldn't remove directory: Failure
Any thoughts as to what I might be doing wrong?
Thanks very much, Sam
