Hi, Maybe this is really a Unix/Linux question and I don't realize it. Since I like the Explorer-like interface, I wanted to stick with that, since I don't feel like being a Linux geek just yet, so here goes. If I want to delete a directory, do II first have to delete the files in it? And if I can't delete a file because it says I don't have permission to do so, does this mean that when I use WinSCP, I'm not logged on as myself, or is there some other issue going on? I am putting in my credentials and getting to the box. thanks.
