Need help deleting a web directory

OK not a website specialist so I wonder if one of you guys can help.

I was looking at password protecting a website directory on my website space.
I came across the .htaccess and .htpasswd method.

Now I want to remove the directory, I am using cuteftp to delete the directory but I can't remove it. It keeps on telling me the directory has a file(s) in there. I realise that the .htaccess are hidden but how can I unhide/delete these files ?

Thanks Sad

Your FTP client should ahve an option to show hidden files, or in some cases, provide you with a method of changing the directory list settings/command.

If the second case, it should be changes to "ls -a"
