550htdocs: No such file or directory

I last logged into my website four days ago.
I can log in okay but when I try to update htdocs I get the error message above. My website though is still live so the file is obviously there somewhere.
I  also get the message 257 "/" is the current directory
The problem seems to have started when I tried to access the site using Filezilla, prior to this I used Ipswitch but I bought a new laptop running Win 7 which no longer worked except in XP mode.
For the time being I've given up with Filezilla after deleting all settings.
I have rechecked all connection details and they are correct, can anyone help please.  Cry

Hi Barry,
The permissions of the htdocs directory were dodgy. Give it another go now.

Thanks for that I can update now.
On the downside my website has disappeared  leaving only the message:
Forbidden
You don't have permission to access / on this server.

Re: 550htdocs: No such file or directory

In FileZilla, after connection to homepages for me the last few entries in the message log are
Response: 257 "/" is the current directory
Command: TYPE I
Response: 200 Type set to I
Command: PASV
Response: 227 Entering Passive Mode (212,159,8,90,179,10)
Command: MLSD
Response: 150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for MLSD
Response: 226 Transfer complete
Status: Directory listing successful
The remote site listed in the right hand pane will be '/' with folder htdocs seen if you click the '+' against '/' to expand its contents.
Ticking Force showing hidden files at the bottom of the Server menu will ensure any hidden ('.') files such as .htaccess are made visible.
