FTP deletion rights

Hi ya, im using WAR FTP which is a completely free FTP software package and let my friends up/download files all the time.

Im the only person with security rights for deletion of files in public and user areas i have configured, and seem to del files with no problem but with folders i sometimes get the same problem. 70% of the time it works but i think it might be where a previuos FTP session didnt close properly and left the shares open.

Cool

:idea:
Try SmartFTP it's free for personal use, I've never had a problem with it.
