Hi. Thanks in advance for your help. I am using WS-FTP Pro for my ftp needs. Sometimes I need to delete a folder because it is taking unnessary space. However if the folder is not empty it does not allow me to delete the top level folder unless I clear out everything inside it. This goes for any folders inside the folder, etc. Is there a faster way to delete non-empty folders using my FTP Client? Thanks.
