Hello, @danilodene

You can easily delete folders using s3cmd from your PC. s3cmd is a popular cross-platform command-line tool for managing S3 and S3-compatible object stores.

You can check our tutorial for configuring s3cmd:

https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/spaces/resources/s3cmd/

Once s3cmd is configured you can use the following command to delete a folder:

s3cmd del s3://BUCKET/OBJECT

e.g

s3cmd del -r s3://sammy-test/TestFolder

If this is successfull the output should be:

delete: 's3://sammy-test/TestFolder/'

Hope this helps!

Same issue here, is this going to be fixed because I can not delete my folders.

I also have filezilla pro connected to my space, this also fails to delete folders.

I also tried s3 for windows to find it is only a trial version so removed it immediately.

Can we have a better long term solution or maybe you can just fix the issue please before we exceed the 250gb and incur additional charges for storing data we are unable to remove.
