How To Delete Hidden Files On My Webspace Using Dreamweaver

I have hidden files on my webspace that I uploaded by mistake and they are making my site unusable. Does anyone know how to delete these within dreamweaver. Obviously I can't see them at the moment so I have no chance of deleting them until I can see them. I only know they are there because plusnet told me they are.

Just get any old FTP client, set it so it sees all files and delete them with that.

Or just use the windows command line client. See Managing webspace with dosFTP for instructions.

What is fetch? is it an email client of some sort as I have never heard of it.

It should have somewhere to set view hidden files or be able to change the ls (directory listing ) command. Try reading the help for it. If you can change the ls command change it to ls -ai.

Or use the dos ftp version included in windows as I sugegsted earlier.
