Why can't I delete a folder via the FTP?

If you have the server turned off and still can't delete a folder in your "addons" or "gamemodes" directory, it may be that you had previously used our SVN tool to create it. Subversion creates hidden files and folders, making its overall trees unable to be deleted.

In this case, we recommend the workaround of creating another folder off of "garrysmod" -- "todelete", for instance -- and then moving (renaming) the folder that you can't delete into that.
