nivinjoy, I checked your files (the admin folder) and i didn't see any permissions problem, so it could just be a permission problem (CHMOD).

If you still can't delete the files after CHMODing them, please infgorm me here of what folders you want deleted and I'll try and delete them for you.

Be Well Cool

Ya i can see that that folder is also deleted....but the Disk Space shows the amount as when they where there.....It still shows as 47 mB..I have not used that much...How is that...???
Bockman
Because DirectAdmin doesn't automatically update the Disk Usage. (it does but takes a long while)

When you need updated stats about disk usage, you need to go to "Site Summary / Statistics / Logs" on DirectAdmin and in there you'll have a button near "Total Disk Usage (MB)" that updates that information.

I already did that for you, and you are currently using 22.1 MB disk.

I'll -close- this support topic since the original situation is solved

Be Well Cool
