550 error occured deleting the file or folder on the FTP Server.

Make sure you have permission to access this foler
I am in IIS in FTP sites windows 2003 and I cannot delete a file.
Any help would be great.

I am logging in Remotely as Administrator.

You need to start by verifying who owns the directory/folder you were attempting to delete.  You need to log to the ftp server, either directly or via Remote Desktop, and look at the security information for that directory/folder.

Now you could also be prevented from deleting a directory if there is another process/user that is actively using that directory/folder.  I am not sure what message the ftp server would send.

Just because are logging in as Administrator does not necessary mean you have the rights to delete a folder.  You would need to verify what rights you have on the folder.  Administrator or the file owner can remove all of Administrator's rights to a file, files, or directory.
