    Hi,
    I have a folder on my iDisk that I tried to delete a long time ago. It didn't work, as the folder and some of its content is stuck for some reason. I've tried deleting through linux (webdav), mobileme.com and my mpb, but the folder remains. It wasn't so bad with 10.5, as I only got a warning that the folder couldn't be deleted once in a while (even though it's months since I last tried to delete it). But with 10.6, the warning pops up every single time the iDisk tries to sync, which is often!!! Has anyone got any tips on how to get rid of the folder, or at least the warnings??? They are driving me crazy!!!!

    The folder and/or it's contents may be locked. On your MBP select the item(s) then "get info" or "more info" and unlock the item (little pad lock). You may need to enter your admin password. If you do, it may be a good idea to repair permissions... Then try to delete the problem child... Some third party utilities can "force empty the trash" like mainmenu and others... mainmenu works for me everytime this has happened in the past for me - hope this helps...

    Thanks for the reply! Didn't work unfortunately - I tried to delete the folder yesterday, and now it's gone! But the message still appears all the time of course, and the folder is still on mobileme.com...

    By the way, here is a dump for Console:

    Looks like the problem is this:
    Any suggestions on what I can do?

    Yes, I tried with that of as well. My solution for now has been to turn of syncing, delete the FileSync folder an resync - and just leave the folder alone. Although I have to live with the folder in place, at least there are no warnings.
