Unable to Delete Backup Folders Created by Drive
« on: July 13, 2015, 06:25:36 am »
While upgrading to a larger drive, I interrupted the BACKUP several times. Now I have 3 folders that I cannot delete:
201404220622, 201404230823, 201404230921
I am pretty sure that they were created by user Root during attempted backups and I get a Folder Access Denied error when attempting to delete them.
Please advise.

My crystal ball doesn't seem to be working today. You have what device?!
PM me for TFTP / Boot Images / Recovery files  LSRecovery.exe file.

Seeing this exact same issue, two years later.  No solution at all?!

Device:  LS220D
Summary:  unable to delete folders created through the built-in backup system.

Use FTP to delete folders with higher restrictions.

or open SSH

or use rm-commands with the acp_commander
